Since it's a date -with a girl I assume- it's always a good idea to ask her questions, make her talk. NT girls LOVE to talk about themselves. Ask her about the things she likes. But pay attention to what she says, so you can continue the conversation trying to find common ground, for example you she...

My daughter's stim also involved her hands. I do not know if your is a stim or not, but it sound like because of the imperative need to do something. First of all we talked to her about the importance of stop doing what she was doing (she was hurting herself) and the consequences if she continued do...

I just read your recent post on Would you change yourself an Nt when you were discussing your husband, along with this one. You know I really think that your family is special because you all try to support one another. I know it can be hard for mothers to understand their AS kids, dont ever feel b...

I think that its amazing AS has helped someone to find true love, i never knew that was possible but i guess as the old saying goes"anything is possible!!" I fell in love with him because he was the most interesting man I ever met. He could talk about almost anything (he´s been reading since he is ...

It sounds like your a great mother if you actually want your daughter to try and be independent even though its not as easy for her to become independent as NTs. I know a few mothers of AS kids who have decided their kid has AS and automatically assumes they cant be independent, and it doesnt go we...

Sorry. Apparently I did not express myself correctly. I was not upset with anybody in anyway. What I meant is that as long as people do not try to "convert" me I am OK with religions. I have Catholic, Evangelical, Jehovah's Witnesses, even Hindu friends. If they respect my beliefs, I respect theirs....

I think the best approach is talk to him. Sit with him and explan why you need straight answers. Probably he does not understand what's happening. Probably even then you will have to remind him a couple of times. If you already talker to him then you can try the interrupting approach. It was hard fo...

I imagine you would not like to hear this, but if he is in 6 grade he should know the tables by now. My Aspie is in 6 grade, too, and math is really though at this level. She is workubg on long multiplications, divisions, radication, you need to know the tables to perform all that. We bought a math ...

I had the same problem. I had my first boyfriend at 17 when all my siblings started at 13. And my first sexual relationship was at 23, with the man I married. People always want yo force you to do things, being having a boyfriend, having sex, trying drugs. I learned to walk away from that people, ig...

When you love someone that person becomes beatiful to your eyes. When I knew my husband I did not like him. Not a bit. I even told him so. But then I fell for him and I started telling him how "beautiful" he was to me. He really was. I started noticing things I did not notice before, like his beauti...

I am sorry for saying this, but those folks were not your friends. Not for real. They were only your friends because you were part if their "group". True friendship is not like that. I am agnostic and I have friends from different religions and I do not care a out there believes. I respect there cho...

I think obsession is more accurate. In general these obsessions are great, because help them excel in an specific subject or area, but everything has a down side. The problem with these obsessions, in our case at least, is that our daughter only wants to do the things she is obsessed with and ignore...

I tend to be overprotective with my 11-years-old Aspie, but she is only child. And I am working real hard in stop being like that and let her be. I know she needs that so she can become and independent woman some day. I've never talk childish to her. Not even when she was a baby. I dislike baby talk...

Have you ever heard that saying about not talking about religion or politics? I prefer talking about politics than religion. Me and my husband are agnostic. All our friends (the few we have) are Catholic. I dislike religion in general. But I think everybody has the right to believe in what they want...
