Went to the carnival tonight, yes school had it early. So my son started the day with getting up ok, but under the same breathe, he then got angry and yelled" dont touch me and shutup" ( we tickle him to help get him up because thats the easiet way.. plus he asks us too... So after an hour of that he headed off to scouts helping troop master. Home, ok, and got ready to go to party.. a little attitude because he wanted to "take the house "( a lot of his stuff with him, then he stopped was ok once we got to school. Ok sooo it started again.. He was also mad because when we first got there my dad just asked my son what he thought he was going to play first and yikes!!!!!!!! He yelled "dont stare at me and shutup" well a bit after my son yelling at us and my daughter having a lil attitide over some books, my dad waited in the car. So as the time carried on.. he was mad at his sister not askin his friends to go in the Haunted house for him. While they were outside, a boy came and started peeling the paper off the cookie container my son won, I asked what he was doing and he had no reaction and kept doing it. It hit me that he had some form of Autism, by then he walked away, and I opened the thing and gave him a cookie He seemed happy!!!!! My son came back and then blew over me giving a cookie away to the boy!!! He wasnt there so I couldnt ask my son, so...I gave that little boy one, I feel I did the right thing. My gosh there was 9 cookies left plus my son also won two cakes!!!!! He also was goin to poor his punch on the floor and yes, we were being stared at! Well, I am trying to think back of anytimes my son felt bad after hurting us or himself, or after breaking materialistic things... I really cant remember more than a few times where he brought up he was sorry after even stepping on our feet accidentally, maybe a few times. My son is literrally fine one minute at litterally next is angry, after tantrums acts like it hasnt happened or does bring it up why we made him mad but is calm again....Im staring to wander if he is a sociopath.. I feel his dad is... As for my daugter.. you all said maybe other issue than Social Anxiety or just Shyness I always thought. Well, she is slowly opening up a little more BUT not at enough speed Id like for turning 13.. I dont want her wild but I see 6,7th d 8th graders running around the school, smiling chasing each other, yet my daughter is in a jacket not showing her costume she insisted on, no smiles except one extremely quick one over something. Still soooooo quite and still bathing issue. But yet, she wants her clothes cleaned daily!!! So when we go to counseling I will ask the Psychologist to start testing her without my daughter knowing too much rite away, to observe her etc. I brought this up to my daughter and she blew, cried saying theres nothing wrong with her its her brother and us letting her brother get away with things and of course, yes my kids are spoiled. My daughter would be in such a bad place going to a public school, Im afraid she will become depressed because I just dont see kids her age acting this way..High School is a social place.. for my daughter Im scared!!! I have to keep her in private where they have gotten to know her there, Im praying kids in her class go the the same high school of hers at least.
