The psych. at the school says autism but I think his Father just spoils him when he goes to his house then I have to deal with the repercussions.
-screaming when he doesn't get things 'his way'
-refuses to eat anything unless it's what he wants
-expects people to play his games his way or he will pitch a royal fit
-talks non-stop about video games. Like that is all he talks about. All he draws and even when he is playing he is acting them out.
-refuses to do home work because he 'hates' to write. (because he won't write his hand writing grade are awful)
-when I punish him he screams all kinds of awful thing like how much he hates me (I wonder if his dad taught him that)
Anyway he is with his day on Fri night-Sun night and any school holidays. Summer he is with him every other week.
what do you think. Is Dad making him this way. I just have a hard time believing that acting like a brat is a sign of Autism. I have a meeting with the school on Thursday to discuss this more with them.
