Ds#2 (has autism) for a long time has said he wants to be older "i want to be 30!" One day about 4 weeks ago he said "i want to be 100" ds#1 (also has autism) said "dont say that, when you're 100 you'll be dead"
So now he constantly talks about it and cries about it a lot. Today at preschool they started a unit of work on 'the body' well as soon as he saw the skeleton he fell apart sobbing that he doesnt want to die...
We dont see the child psych until next week, im wondering if anyone else's little person has experienced this and what do you say? How do you handle it?
