If he is obese you should try to put him into maybe a swimming program? They're usually cheaper than most programs and with autism most places have swimming classes for people with disabilities. It's very calming as well.



Definitely block the sites and supervise his internet usage.



There are usually organizations that can help with children with autism, you should really look into that to see if any programs are in your area.



As for taking him from your daughter you really need to talk to a lawyer about that, possibly social services.



I hope the best for your grandson!

In order to get custody of your grandchild your lawyer would have to prove her unfit which is difficult to do. Does your daughter and grandson live with you?

Hey Vicki you are right, I am going to tell you the truths I am his grandmother that I love my grandson like my own all of that you just told me to do, I been telling my daughter to do it. But it is getting to a point that is so frustrating trying to do so much for him and my daughter that only thing that she said is that he is OK, when I know for fact is not. Last night I told her that I want custody of my grandchild because I don't think she wants to be a mother no more. I did not said this before because it is a circle of moms. And I need that advice as soon as possible because I need to help my grandson now before it gets worse. Thank you.

Its important that you get your son some kind of help, anything free in your town that you can go to, to recieve help? He's over eating for a reason, we tend to over eat because we cant or dont know how to deal with our feeling so to keep them at bay we over eat. He needs to talk with someone! Does his school have any resources you can use? Another thing you can do is watch the foods you buy, you still get to control what you bring in the house, provide him with 2 snacks and 3 meals and thats it!!

Also about the porn is the computer in his room? I would recomend that you take it out and put the computer in more of a central part of the house!

Yes he watch porn on a computer. Thanks I am going to block the websites. As far take him to the doctor, I don't have insurance, so is been so long that he hadn't visit a doctor about to years. Because I moved too much from jobs to jobs, apartment to apartment.

As for being obese, have you brought him to a doctor to be examined and possibility reffered to a councellor?
