I was talking to my aunt about my friend and her little brother and how the kid is the biggest brat ever. I was telling her how he throws tantrums If he doesn't get what he wants and will hit,scream and bite. I was telling her how he is 3 and still isn't potty trained because he wants to go in his diaper and will kick you in the pelvis if you try to get him to sit on the toilet. And if you talk to him he will call you names and slap you or throw something at you. Her reply to this "oh he must have a little Autism".
Uhh no. How about he is a bratty kid with pushover parents that see having a violent, out of control kid that still shits himself as something cute and will stuff him with candy as a reward for being "cuddly". They refuse to parent him or teach him anything. They just pass the responsibility off to his sister and his sister hates him but does more for him in a weekend than they do daily.
Even on here I see that. Every time a bratty kid is mentioned its "oh he must have Autism -or something else-so you can't call him a brat". How about the kid is just a brat without some disorder? Unless shitty parent syndrome and shitty attitude disorder are medically diagnosable conditions.
