Good Morning, Circle of Moms,
I have a 10 year old son who has a very loving heart but a very short fuse. He was diagnosed with high functioning Auspberger's. With that said, we have good days and not so good days. Great moments & not so stellar moments. While at work yesterday, my after school day care provider frantically called to ask me to come & pick up my son asap. She reiterated that he had a squabble with another little boy over a basketball. My son, didn't like the way the law was laid down, became disrespectful, then dropped the F bomb. (totally not acceptable!) Then the day care provider smacked him in the face/mouth. My son has been spanked on the behind like maybe twice in 10 years. My son then went to sit on their stairs and punched a hole in their wall. (again, totally not acceptable to destroy someone else's property). I tried to share with my day care provider about my son's condition. She has never heard of this form of autism. Which, totally blows my mind, but.....In any event, I need her because, I am a 100% of the time, single parent, that works until 7-7:30pm. We are planning on getting together tomorrow & discuss an action plan going forward. I strongly feel that by hitting my son in the face, this was a major violation. However, I do not feel that we should pay for the wall repair given all factors considered. What are your thoughts ?
