I put it out last weekend that my ds who is asd had a really bad tantrum while out at the lake, making it impossible for my dh and my dd to have fun. Well when it came time to do things i sent my dd n dh out by themselves. That way my ds isn't in the position that he feels uncomfortable in. So i planned a trip to farmers market, which usually is a chore with him too with all people there, but i made sure that he felt safe, comfortable, and he knew that he got a special treat at the end if he was good. He had a great time. He didn't ask to be picked up, no tantrum, not even a wimper of upset. I have to say thanks to all the moms advice. I took a little from a lot of them n it works for him. I think that if we keep it up, we will all be a lot happier.
