Not good at staying calm around my autistic son
I'm looking for some help and advice as to how I can be calmer and less stressed around my son,
He is four and a half and was diagnosed with autism last year. His behaviour is a challenge - hitting/not listening/screaming/eating everything.
I find myself increaingly loosing my temper/shouting at him over the smallest things. I also have a one and a half year old and I'm worried about the effect our fraught household is having on her.
He is always hitting/poking her eyes etc and I am ashamed to say I am often too rough/pushy with my son. Everyday is a battle at the moment. From reading other posts it sounds like things aren't going to get easier anytime soon.
I'm not being the mummy I want to be to my little boy I love so much. I wonder if I have anger issues.
Does anybody know of any organisations or have any advice (please don't judge me) where I can get some help/speak to somebody.
