    when expectations he has are not being met. He likes things planned out and orderly and if we plan something and then a random event gets in the way.. its hard for him.  But yes the best way is to give him space. Though he will say "Can you tell me now?" But sometimes I cannot tell him now..because I don't know! In my experience, the best thing is to give time, maybe say 'we will talk about this late" and then, talk about it later.

    •  same with my son. I've found that if (4+ / 0-)

      I endeavor to lose my typical reaction of "what's the big deal?" and let him come up to speed on his own, things go a lot better.  So much of this excellent diary is teaching me how important it is to not let NT behavior always triumph over atypical behavior.  Thanks again, Phil and all here.

      I love my President! Who'da thought THAT was possible?
