My 3 year old son has recently been diagnosed with Autism so I am new to disciplining him when his naughty. He is very intelligent, you can have a complete conversation with him, he understands what actions are naughty and what actions are good but now he has started hitting and kicking other kids at day care with no reason. Last night he threw a toy train at his 6 year old cousin which cut her head open, yes he said sorry when we asked him to but he just smiled. He doesnt listen to me, I say "Im not happy with your actions" he says "when Im good again you will be happy" So he understands but isnt willing to be "good" again! Im at wits ends trying to discipline but Im at the point of a mental breakdown, my heart breaks to have my son act like this. I feel like a terrible mother.
