When it comes to my son, who is 6, and we are in a store or somewhere and he's having a meltdown and people are looking at me to do something in the form of discipline or wondering if I'd hit him. I don't have time to explain an Asperger's diagnosis that many of them are clueless about so I just qui...

ah thank you for the reply. It does seem like pointless fluff until you are asked by most people you meet "Can I find you on facebook?" when the answer is no then it's like a disconnect and seperation as they don't know how to connect without it. Of course this is not a problem with Sangha members, ...

I don't know if it's just me or not, but I have the biggest problem with facebook. I feel it's the anti-practice to the practice of no-self. Just feels like it's nothing but promotion of a huge ego trip and it actually worries me how it's 'taking over' and so popular. Am I being too sensitive about ...

One thing to consider is that your son's perception of what is happening, especially with a bully complaint, could be off from what is really happening. My son, although much younger only 6, says daily that the other kids don't like him but I see kids every morning saying hi to him and his school co...

This is upsetting to me. I have a 1st grade Aspie who is being raised Buddhist. He would be very vulnerable to this type of thing.

Although at school assembly he's so overwhelmed by the noise he sits there with head phones on and tunes out what is going on anyway. :D

God, that's really awful. And it sounds like his dad was also a first-rate lout and user and abuser. That ex friend sounds like he tried to be a decent individual. And I'm very glad you were able to get out of that situation. Thanks, me too! Now I'm married to my best friend so all turned around fo...

Reincarnation is a common belief for Therevada, but we do disolve the "I" or "self" but what is being reincarnated is simply the energy moving forward and on. It goes hand in hand with karma. Negative energy collects with other negative energy while positive energy collects with other positive ener...

another thing that I've done is to 'teach myself' to ask questions, it doesn't come naturally for me to ask questions, not an inquisitive person that way, or if I do wonder something it doesn't register with me to ask a question. I'm getting better with that as well, but I've had to train myself to ...

I have this problem naturally, now I have my 6 year old Aspie son who has basically put a mirror in my face as he does it to me now all the time. (and everyone else, he'll talk the ear off of anyone) So watching him and realizing it's what I've been guilty of has been a good lesson for me. But I do ...

Hi, I'm a Therevada Buddhist. Nice to meet you all! I'd like to correct one poster stated that Therevada was comparable to Catholic in Christianity as into rituals, I'm thinking you may be confusing Therevada with Tibetan Buddhism. Tibetan is much more into rituals and ceremony. One of the main thin...

"Steer" would be a strong word, but any social skills I have now I learned from Shakespeare. Acting classes are basically what counselors have kids do in social skills classes: they call it "role-playing," but it's just as scripted there. Acting has the additional benefit of instruction on what to ...

I think the "imaginative play" part of the diagnosis is confusing to everyone, including diagnosticians. My son loves imaginative play, but does it in such a scripted and rigid manner that it isn't at all NT. I've heard of other kids having other very Aspie ways of playing imaginatively. I think th...

. . . But it's been nagging at me lately the piece that says "go back to the beginning, what traits did you have in the beginning to make you vulnerable to the abuse in the first place." And not reading people properly is what got me mixed up with the abuser in the first place, which is a more clas...

I've had problems with dissociation on extreme levels. I did suffer many years of abuse, in which most of those years are blank for me, so there was dissociation out of necessity happening. but think the dissociation probably came easy to me due to the Aspie traits????? But it did get out of hand an...
