Hi newbie here! I really need some advice on my soon to be 14 year old son. We are going through some really tough times right now. He has been very agressive, hitting, putting holes in walls and going after my other son. I know medication is a touchy subject with most but I personally feel no one knows what goes on with your situation and in your home and no one should be judged for taking that road. I really do feel he needs medicaiton for anxiety and depression but was wondering if anyone else is going through this with their teen ? And if so how do you cope with it? I am only 5 foot tall and he is 5"7 and 160 lbs. Sometimes its all I can do to just wait it out and stay out of his way until he calms down. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

Dawn,
Agressive behavior is common behavior for autistic teens. I was raising my 12 yr. old Autistic grandson. He was bigger than me and I could not intervene when he became aggressive. It was not good for e, but either of us. He is in a group home now and I am able to see him, It breaks my heart, but he is learning to curb his aggression. I can no longer dote on him, spoil him with only things he likes, and the staff at the group home make him pick up after himself witout him throwing a tantrum. The hardest regognition that I did was to realize I was no longer effective to help him to grow, and to allow him to go to agroup home.
