My son is 2, he has a friend who is a little older who is very autistic and often throws tantrums like I've never seen. Lately my son throws the same kinds of tantrums and I can see so much frustration built up inside him. Right now he is an inconsolable wreck of screaming, kicking and pinching himself. Was I wrong to let him spend so much time with this other boy? He's even kicking his legs out in the same way.
They spend quite a lot of time together, and he had never before shown even the slightest signs of autism. Now he's behaving so similar.
Sometimes he wakes up just screaming. Like now... it's been an hour an a half straight of this!
