Just because your kid is bad as hell does not mean they are autistic! I have seen several autistic kids and they have all been well mannered and very quite. Just because your kid is bat shit crazy because you don't discipline them doesn't make them autistic. When are people going to own up to what they created and stop writing it off to a disability?

My nephew has autism. His behaviors can be annoying but he's not bad. He doesn't even realize when kids are making fun of him.

Ugh i know I also can't stand the bipolar label mostly it's just people acting like a dick and using a label to excuse their bad behavior. I feel for kids who are actually autistic cuz they don't get the help they really need since evey kid is labeled and not disciplined. Big pharma people are the ones to thank for it so they can medicate everyone and sell their meds

I think a lot of it is lack of discipline... There are truly some kids that are autistic but they are overlooked because of the other people abusing it...

That is the difference. The kids that are truly autistic are not bad. These women saying my kid is autistic are crazy. Their kids are simply bad!

I'm sick and tired of this same damn argument all the time. The majority of kids with autism ARE well behaved kids. My son isn't a brat, he doesn't misbehave (at least no more than any other almost 3 year old), he isn't violent. I do discipline him, but in different ways, because he doesn't comprehend as well as other kids his age. Take away a toy? Yeah, so what, toys mean nothing to him. Put him in time out? Good luck getting him to sit in one place without physically restraining him. Try to explain why what he did was wrong? Yeah, maybe that would work if his receptive language skills were even CLOSE to his age.

Don't assume that because he has autism, he's a brat, or I use it as an excuse to let him run wild. Just because you may see him in public having a meltdown, and instead of scolding him, I'm giving him a hug, doesn't mean I'm "letting him get away with it." I'm doing what works FOR HIM and his specific needs.

My sons been kicked out of 3 schools goes to therapy twice a week, he's 8 its been a year they still want to label him " autistic" he's not, bipolar more than likely, he obviously has a mood disorder, he can be violent ever since he was tiny I have three other kids all have impeccable records, what's your take on him? Its not my parenting you bitch :)

That might be a valid argument, except that the majority of time autism is treated with therapy rather than medication.
