My (almost) 8 year old aspi has always had obsessions. They usually last anywhere from 3mos to a year. Although frustrating at times, I've always somewhat had a handle on them ..... until now. His latest obsession is with an old actress from the 80's and inappropriate things. By inappropriate I mean he interested in female body parts, and also anything rated R or video games rated mature. It seems like anything that is to mature for him he has to have. Obviously I don't allow him to watch inappropriate shows or play mature video games but this has caused many battles. Partially because my husband doesn't see the harm as long as it doesnt interfere at school. Only today I got a call from his teacher that it is interfereing. He has been telling his teacher he hates school because he is not allow to talk about violence and inappropriate things.. Despite many attempts from myself and his teacher, no progress has been made. He is also angry and disrespectful over this. Please, any advice is much appreciated. I don't know what else to do.
