I have an almost 10 year old daughter diagnosed with autism, pdd-nos, & adhd. It's a struggle each day. Because she gets grounded now, she asks no less than once a minute everyday "am I grounded?" She asks at anytime & wherever we are. Will throw a tantrum if she doesn't get an answer. It is so aggravating! There is always question after question to stuff she knows the answer to. Her therapist says she just needs confirmation & to ignore her. She wont let you ignore her. People stare & look funny at you & I just ignore them but it is so hard. I also have a 3 year old & I think he can also tell she is different. We are also changing her medicine AGAIN due to her reactions. She has scratched her nose til it bled & scared she may end up scarred. The doc's can't figure out why. Does anyone else have these problems? I need some positive advice & help to cope. If you dont have a child whom is different you hust dont understand & they cant advise you.
