  • I am a Mom of 4 kiddos, 3 boys, 1 girl. Believe it or not, all 3 of my boys have some form of Autism. Ages are: 13 year old twin boys, 12 year old daughter & 4 year old boy. One of my 13 year olds has become mean and aggressive at times. He always says mean things to his sister and gets very angry if he loses at anything. Sometimes it is out of control. At this point I have refused medications. Until I hear of one that really helps. I just try to talk to him when he has these outbursts.
