No sooner did Lizze leave with my parents for a meeting with Patti when Gavin completely lost it. He is upstairs screeming for 30 mins now because he couldn’t manipulate me into allowing him to go to bed instead of finishing his reading. He has gotten used to these meltdowns getting him out of things at school. Well guess what. That’s not going to work here and the problem will be corrected at school. We usually pick our battles but this one I think is worth fighting. He has to learn that he cannot resort to violence when he doesn’t get his way.
This is insane. The entire house is shaking. I put on Monsters Inc for the kids and that drowns out the screaming. This is the dark side autism. Violent rages that will only get worse now that peuberty has started.
