sexual desires of a 17 year old boy
over the years we have had numerous challenges and now we are facing this. This seems to be one of the most heartbreaking of all. My son is actually pretty high functioning and very atypical in many ways. He is quite verbal so we are fully aware of his desires. He is very interested in girls and doesn't understand why he can't touch and kiss girls he see's including his teachers and any cute girl he sees in public. He expressed last night that he doesn't undertand why he can't have a girlfriend. He says the reason he wants to touch his teachers is that they like him. When i asked how he knows, he said because they laugh with him, are nice to him and smile at him. He is obviously is taking the actions in a different light they they are intended. We have not had the "talk" with him yet as we are afraid that it might lead to him being aggressive and approaching girls with the intention of making this happen. HELP!!!!
