Hi I'm new to this!! My daughter diagnosed with asd in June this year. Just needed to offload this morning. She had a major meltdown. Would not get ready for school started crying like a baby. Eventually got her in the car she screamed all the way to school kicking my seat kept my cool. Wouldn't get out of the car at school. Had to ring school to get someone to help. Eventually she went in in tears after she'd hit me with her bag a few times then called me a fat ***. I'm now getting hate messages.
I love her to bits but it's so stressful to deal with feel like I'm alone with it.
She'll cool down in time, I think. Well done for keeping calm in the situation.Do you know what might have triggered her meltdown today?
