my kids are 4 1/2 and 6 and there's a little boy on our block who has aspergers and I think I'm the last Mom to allow their kids to play with him. He is 5 or 5 1/2, perfect age to play with BOTH my kiddos. The main reason he's shunned socially (by the moms, NOT the kids) is boundary issue. He'll walk right into your house and use the bathroom, grab a piece of cheese, etc.
Anyhoo I just lock my door and this has literally trained him not to target our house. My kids have a terrific time with him and he's always SO happy to see them and appreciative of their attention. Today about an hour ago, though, he sort of SNAPPED... knocked my daughter off her scooter and mounted her, smashing her into the sidewalk repeatably and chasing her down to repeat this after she finally got away. Was this a one time thing? She is terrified of him now, her brother is feeling protective, and my husband BEGGED me to file a police report (I decided not to. He didn't really leave any marks) I'd like to make this a lesson of tolerance but I need to know if this could happen again, possibly when I am NOT 20 feet away raking leaves.
PS they were not fighting or anything unusual. He was on bike, her on scooter. He hopped down and attacked her like an animal with no warning. My son was nearby blowing bubbles.
