It's All Okay

Just a mom blogging about life with an autistic child.

Location: Canada

I'm a stay at home mom with two boys. Patrick is my youngest and has ASD.

Patrick has been very difficult after school the past couple of days. All reports have been good from the school. So is he reacting to being good all afternoon by exploding every evening? There's a one to two hour period after school where he's cranky, growling, crying and basically unhappy. What should I do? Maybe he just needs some time to adjust?? It's only been 4 days.

You and I are living the same life right now with the after-school growling. Owen is out of sorts, argumentative, crying, the whole deal for a few hours every day after school. It has been three weeks, no end in sight. I keep waiting for the school to see some of what we are experiencing at home.
A little bit of Owen's temperament is beginning to show through, but no bad reports from the school yet.
I guess we just need to hang on and ride this out!!

Thanks Tara, it's nice to know I'm not alone. I hope the kinks get worked out for both of us soon.

Isnt' it the truth? He works so hard to keep it together at school, and then comes home and lets go. He knows he's loved no matter what; he can collapse at home.
