ASD kid and murder/suicide obsession??
Hi, y'all! I'm a mommy of 3, including a 12 yr old Aspie kid. His obsession is video game cheats, glitches, anything "unusual" about the game. He recently stumbled across a website called "Creepy Pasta" which tells strories about creepy happenings within the video game world (sounds silly, i know). For example, he was telling me this morning about a bunch of suicides that occured right after kids would play "lavender Town" on Pokemon. Its pretty much far fetched fairy tales for gamer kids like my babe, but he thinks they are true. And he is really, really interested in it. Now this is a new obsession and I'm hoping it goes away on its own, but should I make him stop looking at them? I'm conflicted because I myself like to read cold case files and things like that so I know how he can find this stuff interesting, but he gets obsessive (Aspie trait) and I don't want him going to school taking about suicide/murders!
Advise, please? :)
