My 5yr old son has a mild case of Asperger's, He refuses to say "I love you", when prompted when you ask him why he just says "cause I don't want to", but he will climb up and cuddle with you or give you a hug. I told him just the other day that it was OK and he did not have to say it cause he shows it in other ways. I told him he could say something else instead like, "me too." He seemed at ease with that and now when I tell him "I love him" he says, "I know, me too!"
I was just wondering if any one else was having this same issue and how you are dealing with it?
