My sister in law says my 2 year old DS has autisum, because he likes to look at fans and spin things. And that there is something mentally wrong with my 4 years old because he has a speach delay.
I have discussed both of these things with their doctor. And he believes, also with a 2nd opinion from another doctor that they are what some call late bloomers. Should I be concerned and get a 3rd opinion or is my sister in law just nuts? By the way this is the first time she has even been around my kids.
Thanks for the advice. I don't think my kids are dumb, I never have. Do I get frustrated somedays that they can't talk. YES! But I never thought they where dumb, and she really pushed the limit of suggesting something might be wrong. And just saying they had something mentally wrong with them. I'm not going to tell her off, its not worth it. Although I could think of a few things to say, like the fact she is unable to even have kids. But if I did that I'd be no better than her. Plus I have to live in the same house as her. But I did talk to DH and after the things she has and stuff we've seen. She left a 17 month old baby she was babysitting in the car with windows/doors shut while the car was off. All because she didn't want to deal with him while she put away groceries. Then got mad at DH when he got the baby out of the car. And then a few weeks later put the same kid in their truck without a carseat, because she wanted to go to the store. I would tell them mom, but I don't see her, because my SIL goes to her sisters house everyday, who knows what she does wth the kids over there. So DH said she is never allowed to be alone with our kids, or ever baby sit our kids. This girl is PSYICO! and she thinks there is something mental with my kids.
