my son is 7 he is autistic he is a very smart loving child who trys really hard to let people touch him and talk to him even tho it is painful for him. normally he is very well behaved never wants to get in trouble but on occasion he has outburts where he might scream loudly or tell someone please dont touch me or talk to me i dont like it i have tryed and succeded at gettin him to tell people when they r bothering him in a nice way he always says please but i have had several people tell me my child is rude and needs to be spanked well you cant spank an autistic child your only gone make him withdrwl and not speak or move for days. I get very upset when people say this and usually tell them hes autistic and they should mind their own biz. would you tell someone to spank their child if you felt they were bot doing "good parenting" of a "rude child"?
Hello People, This child is AUTISTIC! I had bolded it just in case you are missing this in her question. How could you spank a child that has a non controllable mental disabilities. This child is not an ADHD huge difference. Hbabygirl476, you need not to listen to anyone. They are not in your situation. You should read books on control discipline behaviour on autistic children and you should be able to find some advice to guild you on how the both of you can work on signs of uncomfortable situations. I have sevral friends that has a child with Autisim and i would never know how to give them parenting skills because I only know what works for me and my children. Spanking is not one of them. Good Luck Sweetie please keep us updated.
