my son is 7 years old with fragile x syndrome. Ive been in a relationship for several months and our children finally met for the first time. My bf has four girls who range in age from 11-3 years old. The oldest was very upset about my sons behaviors. We aren't sure exactly what bothered her, but she went home after visiting our new apartment crying to her mother. I have to admit we didn't prepare the girls as well as i think they should have been, but we were completely unsure of how to explain to them what a special needs child was, or what it meant for them.... any advice would be much appreciated....
