I have a six yr old girl. She is currently being assessed for the autism spectrum; however she has also had trauma in her life. There are times when she has such severe meltdowns I am at a loss. The other day she didn't want to live anymore and said it would be okay if I killed her. Heavy hey. I know this is not uncommon considering she may be on the autism spectrum, and has a history of previous trauma. Sometimes the meltdowns go for a couple of hours. It's very upsetting, and I do try to empathise with her feelings. At the end of them she's exhausted, and relieved.
