I would truly love it if people understood this fact. No matter how much you discipline the child, they will go back and do it again. It takes time, patience, and gentle reminders to work towards fixing the negative attributes. In our case, it has been medicine, a wonderful school, and a lot of creative thinking.
If your child does not have autism, you should hug the mom and dad of the parents of the children who autism and offer them your support with time, love, money, food, whatever you have extra ... God is Good and we must share our blessings and bless others!
