HELP!!! Hi in new to the app and desperately need help. My son is 6 years old diagnosed with Autism and ADHD. The other day he tried to push our dog into our pond and my husband seen him doing it. When we asked him why he told us that he was trying to drown the dog. I asked him if he knew what drowning meant like what happens, and he said it’s when you go underwater and can’t breathe and then you die. I was in complete shock and overwhelmed with sadness; at that point I didn’t know how to respond and I am not sure what I should do. I mean my first thought was this is how serial killers start and then I started to worry about his future and who he will become if I don’t figure out how to address this situation. Please if anyone has any advice I would greatly appreciate it! And if I need to post any other details or history about my son I can answer any questions. Thank You all!
