Do you have a child with autism who shows aggressive behavior towards you?  FamilyAffaires.com Expert Contributors, Debbie Schmidt & Christy Carlson, Co-Founders of Just2Moms, share their stories and give advice on how to deal with aggressive behavior.  As they explain, when the children are young much of the behavior comes from the inability to communicate.

As children with autism grow, the behavior is usually not as severe but with growth may come the issues of hormones.  Please feel free to post your comments below and Christy & Debbie will respond and offer their support.
