I love my daughter, I also discipline her when she needs it, and I do not believe she is always right. She is 12 now.")

I treat my autistic child exactly lime his typical functioning brother. Obviously I use different discipkine on him but I find that typical with any siblings every child is different so they usually need different types of discipline. The only changes I make for him are with certain meals and that is usually easy modifications.

My kids get time outs or as they are getting older I take away privileges like tv time, playing outside with friends, or phone usage. Usually I take away the electronics first.

I wish my ex's mother would have treated her autistic daughter like a normal child. That girl has made me terrified of autism.

Mine too! I'm always complimented on how sweet and thoughtful my girls are! I think it's due to me expecting the same from my autistic daughter as my other kids. Yes we still have to give her a bigger area of leeway so she can have a opportunity to catch her behavior and make adjustments.
