    Awwww, that's really horrible People can be such shunts at times.
    I'd give that 'friend' the flick and move forward.
    Can you maybe try and find out if there is a support group or (something similar) in your area for parents with ASD kids?

    Thanks everyone. There is an autism group here, lots of things for kids under school age, and quite a bit for teens, even a support group for adults with it, but totally lacking in the 6 - 11 age group unfortunately.

    Try the teen one, for yourself, not DD. Those parents understand what you're going through and DDs behaviour.

    What a total bish. Would have been a waste of good food and wine if she'd stayed. Your girl sounds gorgeous. My DD and I would gladly come and eat, drink, chat, and play! People really can be such tossers!

    With the teen one they meet for different things like they will go to pizza hut, the movies, laser skirmish, it's just for the teens to hang out together. My dd is only 8.

    I don't have a special needs kids, but jeez... some people are just idiots. I think people without kids often tend to be a bit harsher on children than those with, because they just have no idea what's reasonable... but seriously, your friend sounded like she arrived shirty, so things would have likely headed that way regardless of how your daughter behaved.

    I don't think it has much to do with having a child with ASD, but rather having a friend who's a bit of a self-centred b*tch.

    Yeah I don't know what the problem is. She told me how relaxing it is at the moment, just her and the cat since her OH and her teen son went away yesterday and will be back sunday. Yet she scowled at my neighbours about their yard. I hadn't even told her they had a snake in the yard today.

    I think she was in a **** mood before she came and really I think you should have just left the kids watching tv, your dd probably got annoyed at being asked to go outside. I think your friend is not exactly what I would call patient and she really needs to get over herself.

    Get some new friends....
