Well, my difficult child is at it again. She is hitting other students (lashing out when angry/frustrated) and her teacher. I can't seem to get a straight answer regarding whether or not this is actually "normal" behavior for her diagnosis. (By normal I mean that it is somewhere on the spectrum of behavior even if it's to the far end of the scale occurring in a small percentage of children) By the same token, if anyone is experiencing this, how do I respond and/or discipline as a parent? I know she's not purposefully attacking and not trying to hurt anyone, and she feels very remorseful afterwards. on the other hand, she has to be told that her reactions/behaviors are not acceptable and there have to be consequences, correct? Thoughts? Advice?
