  •  Well, that's life (5+ / 0-)

    isn't it? And not just for families who live on the autistic spectrum. I have a good friend with a NT son the same age as my daughter who tried to kill himself this year (he didn't succeed, thankfully), but he's a very troubled young man and my friend is pretty much powerless to help him, despite everything she's tried.

    I've taught my daughter that every person has things they are good at, and then things they struggle with. I think this helps her sometimes when she's frustrated at not being able to do something.
