BRAVO for this mother! Too often do I see autistic kids who are UNBEARABLY RUDE AND MEAN because their parents never taught them 'because they're autistic and can't learn it'. Some higher spectrum level of Autism, MAYBE. But most of the kids I see are over-pampered assholes, illness or not.
It may seem.... callous, maybe. But I very much agree with DaxxButtons' comment. I've know one autistic young man who was very rude and thought he could be mean to everyone around him because he's "special." And I had an autistic cousin who was well behaved most of the time... because his mother raised him right.
I always looked up to my Aunt Lisa who raised my autistic cousin, it was a huge struggle for her, but she still managed to do it right.
