My niece was 3 years old at the time. My niece have autism and can't talk that well. When I and my boyfriend was baby sitting. This was the first time he ever met her. That day she kept saying feet feet but we thought it was eat eat. she was drinking form a baby bottle. ( but so were half the kids at the park) she was crying because her feet was hurting her. anyways my boyfriend came out and said,
she's like a infant then i said you mean a one year old, then he said no infant a new born.
so since then, every time my niece did something, i call him and say my niece did such in such new born can't do that, i believe i brought this up over 400 times maybe more.
example: when we pass normal children who are talking and they are like 6 yrs old with bottles, i say do he have the mind of a new born, let me guess no because he talks right.
He told me sorry he is now educated on autism, and my niece do like him she talked to him after a few meet ups. I have a lot of neurological disorder and i don't know why my brain isn't letting this go.
should i let it go and can i get any tips.
to add my niece is five now, no bottle, and go to public school, talks and use signs.
potty train. ect. clean room and clean off plates form table

I wouldn't care that he didn't actually know anything about autism, what an extremely rude thing to say PERIOD. First, ALL children develop differently not just children with autism. Second, HE was behaving like a newborn. Yes, I say let it go but I can see why you have held onto it.
