That's my Aspie teen, when we visited Beaufort last week, smiling, relaxed and happy.
When we saw the paediatrician this week the doc made the mistake of asking how long we'd been homeschooling.
The floodgates opened and Aspie teen began chattering away about the bully at his former school who'd made his life a misery.
Trying to calm him was useless; he was like a wind-up toy stuck on his track, having to see this through to the end, so he repeated every.little.thing the bully had done.
Even mentioning how he'd threatened to find our home address to come and kill Aspie teen.
4 years on and it was still uppermost in his mind.
And now I read this news article about yet another ASD kid being bullied not just by other students but by their parents!
These 'adults' are meant to set the example by which their little darlings live.
Why the heck are ASD kids taught to mind their manners but these rude tossers have none?
I can only imagine karma will be snacking on their rumps once they become old and frail when their kids kick 'em to the kerb, having the same amount of respect for the elderly as they do for those with a disability.
Sounds like a little bit bullshyte.
