My ods is high functioning Autistic, and adhd. He has zero filter, even when told things directly, he will still blurt things out. He is six, my other boys are ss4, ds3, & ds 2 months.

Well we celebrated christmas on xmas eve for ss, and bil dressed up as santa and brought gifts. Ds3 & ss4 were all into it, ds6 blurts out "that's uncle" I pull him aside, say "stop for your brothers, they don't know", then he does it again , dh pulls him out of the room and tells him again to stop and explains it once more. But he did it again.

I love him, and understand its a part of who he is. But it is frustrating as hell.

Well Merry christmas, and happy everything else everyone.

My brother was this way. If you explained to him in painstaking minute detail why it's wrong to ruin the Santa thing for others, he would get it. This was not a 2 minute talk. This was an hour long discussion with research, examples and sometimes pictorial help. Once he got it, he got it.

Hugs to you. You will figure out a way to explain things like this to him. It just takes time and trial and error.

Exactly how my ods is, I swear he has interuptissyndrome.. I love the little guy.

I am trying so hard to teach him that words can hurt others.

 This is exactly what I have to do with Zion. He needs to see everything when trying to explain anything to him. He tells everyone he's speaking to that they need to googley (google) it and show him proof. They say in school that if they use pictures he does well with instructions where they can as he sees it and understands it much better.
