We have tried and tried to introduce him to new things and places, but my Autistic kid is only interested in staying home, watching tv, listening to music, reading, and video games. We've basically run out of things to do in the local commuting area.
Only places he wants to go (over and over on a daily basis) are the library and video game store. He is not outdoorsy or athletic. I accept who he is, but its ....boring (for me and DH). He doesn't do anything and talk s all day about his games and cartoons. Also he can never leave us alone, he's always there following us around or staring at us. He doesn't seem to have the ability to just do his own thing by himself
His anger management has also made him unwelcome at daycamps, and such as they are not equipped to deal with Special Needs kids (not Autism anyway). When he was little it was easy to find stuff to do, but now he's starting Middle School and its not so easy anymore.
