Hello- I'm just wondering if anyone has ever had this happen to them with thier child. My ASD son is 10 and he get VERY upset when he thinks about growing up. If someone calls him a big boy, he yells "I'm a big kid" then breaks into tears and says he doesn't want to grow up.
I guess I'm just not sure what to say to him. Everytime he does this I tell him he deosn't have to grow up if he doesn't want to. Just not sure if this is right.
Any suggestions would be great.
