I have a 15 year old with anxiety problems. We have been told she has asperger tendencies, but she is high functioning. The problem is a total LACK of will power when it comes to taking candy, cookies, and anything around our house. I had a couple dozen cookies I was saving to take to another craft show in November, she ate them all. Anything we have around the house, she gets into. I used to hide it, but I think it made matters worse because when something was out she took it. Now, I am trying to explain how many of something she can have, but save the rest for other family members or sometimes just to have as a desert, etc. I want her to develop some will power and realize that she can resist the temptations that are around her. Help!! Is this too much to ask of a 15 year old who is immature for her age.
