Aspie Teen son becoming mean..using 'shock speech'
I won't get into the various things he's been saying, but yesterday he let me have it with just about every mean thing he could think of (some imagined). I've never felt like I didn't 'like' my son. I hate that feeling. He has the usual problems with empathy and my ex husband is very volatile in the way he speaks-he's also a powder keg. I think my son is partially role modeling this behavior. When my ex and I were still married, he was verbally abusive and my son witnessed a lot of it. Add to that, adolescence and I think there is a mixture here.
My feelings are getting badly hurt. All I do is for my boy. I don't deserve this. He's already been in trouble with the police (a misunderstanding exacerbated by his 'shock speech). I'm deathly afraid he'll talk this way to the wrong person and end up beaten up or even dead. I have him enrolled in a communication group for Aspies and he's doing well, but there have been 'shock speech' issues there. Can anyone relate? Any tips or suggestions?? Help!
