Ok where to start,
I am new here, My 10 year old son is yet to be diagnosed. The wait list is long and have at least another year to go. He is very high functioning and We ( family and friends) believe its Aspergers. ( Why oh why did I wait so long.. Thought we were coping )
I am in search of discipline for him. Taking his video games ( he only plays on the weekend) and his Saturday Pokemon group away does not work. Giving him chores, I could not get him to do them if I tried and would just lead to another fight and fit. He hates being told what to do by me (ODD) Hell he has a need to be in control at all times. Nothing can be his fault. Example if I say YOU left your coat on the floor please hang it up. He comes unglued starts yelling and calling himself bad and has a fit. If I say I am not sure how your coat ended up on the floor, could you please pick it up. he is ok. ( thank goodness for my coworker, she helped me sort out that trigger and how to reword) I am desperate for away to discipline him that is going to work. Any and all advice is welcome.
Thanks so very much!
