Difference between Asperger's and antisocial personality disorder? easy child is insistent that she sees a lot of AntiSocial pers dis. in difficult child. I think it's totally Aspie. She says she's not discounting the AS aspects, but still sees AntiSoc Pers dis. I looked up the differences online and what's hard to tell is whether difficult child really feels remorse deeply or whether he says he does and does what he has to do in order to regain his privileges. One thing we've done is make sure that he does feel remorse by repeating what he has done wrong and taking away privileges until he cries. Kids can't develop a conscience unless they truly feel what they have to feel. I don't see people with-antisocial personality dis being like that. My ex-b-i-l has it (he's in prison now) and the only time I saw him exhibit tender emotions was when his daughter was born, and when my sister left him. Of course, he never apologized for a thing, and he was a victim the entire time. He was so manipulative he could wrap you around his little finger in 5 sec. flat. He was funny, entertaining, and very smart. I'm thinking that easy child is looking at the extremes in difficult child -- the times we've called the police, the times he has done things that don't mesh with what society tells us is right --and I'm looking at how he has learned to curb those behaviors, how he can feel emotion as opposed to being totally devoid of emotion, and how he is extremely immature. I don't see him being "hard" as much as "not getting it." I don't see difficult child totally getting into people's faces to aggravate them all the time, although he does love to do that to me. Mostly, he'd rather be at home in his room, reading, or in easy child's room on her computer, or in the LR, playing PlayStation. He is not always violent, only when his routine is destroyed and his anxiety ramps up. But easy child is insistent and wants to make an appointment with-our therapist to talk about it ... with-o difficult child, of course. Anybody here with-kids who have a 100% diagnosis of antisocial personality disorder?
