Hi! I am looking for some advice. My son was diagnosed at 6 w aspbergers. Its been a long road but nowadays we have middle school issues. Not tantrums. He has no friends at school. And seems to like it that way. He has even said to me that the kids aren't important to his life, so why should I talk to them. He's also antisocial with his teachers. Turning in homework consists of me twisting his arm and being a surrogate 8th grader. I know about every assignment before he does. Its my second job. I'm just trying to get him to graduate. On the one hand though he is brilliant and only fails because he fails to turn in assignments. My concern today is his communication with his dad. He speaks to me about everything. I forget he has aspbergers often because he is very intelligent. He even knows where he wants to attend college and for what degrees. I said degrees....he wants to double major. And no subject is off limits. He even helps with the chores and any thing I ask of him. His dad however is a different matter. He loves his dad. They do their male ritual binding over monster trucks, movies, wrestling etc. He is a great dad. The best. But J doesn't talk to his dad about anything. He's more a teenager. Refuses to do chores, school is fine and doesn't talk about puberty etc. My son informed me puberty hit...his dad found out through me. I am just wondering if that is normal? Please help.

Thanks!

It definitely depends upon the dad and the kid but I can tell you that it was the same in our house with both my boys one Aspie, one not. It was also the same in my bff's house and her 2 boys are both NT....My Aspie got married this summer and DH and he did some "male bonding" in a certain aisle of the drug store....out of necessity because I told DH this was NOT my responsibility ;-) So...hang in there and be grateful J talks to you as much as he does!
