Okay so I told my Aspie son who is 6 2 days ago that today we would be having our/his cat who is very very sick put to sleep. I was very specific and answered all of his questions. When he first asked me is Willie(the cat) was going to die I told him yes. He kind of teared up but then went back to normal. No hysterical crying, no running to the cat, nothing. It was very matter of fact. In fact when my DH got home from work my son approached him and said' Daddy, did you know Willie's liver isn't working and he's going to die on Wednesday?' I know all of these reactions are normal for an aspie child but it's hard for me to deal with. I am so afraid he will have the same reaction when his grandmother dies. Part of me really wishes I had this hysterically crying kid. Anyone know what I'm dealing with?
