A child with autism often sometimes have a behavioral issues. Your child might have triggered her emotion from something that she did not like or perhaps she wants to have something that was denied from her. Most of the time a child would mostly engage in aggressive behavior and is unable to stop, it is because fear and anxiety maybe driving her or him into this kind of mood.
It would probably a good advice to those parents not to contribute anger or as much as possible do not add fuel to the fire. Control yourselves because anger and aggression would only lead into a bad situation which you trying to avoid, get mad and get hurt. Most of the time we could not think what is right when we are angry .
We get carried away with our emotions and practically at the end we did physically hurt somebody. Would you let that happen to your child that has autism? , she doesn’t really know what had happened. In her state of mind she didn’t know what she was doing.
Put yourself together and hold your temper as much as possible avoid hurting your child just to show her some discipline. She probably would get scared somehow but at the end if you keep on doing that it would create friction on your relationship with your daughter. Instead of having herself be part of solving the issue it would only worsen her behavioral problem.
So whatever it was, either she is acting really immature or having aggressive behavior all you have to do is take a deep breath. Downplaying your tone of voice would somehow abate the anger or aggressive response of your child. It would also bring help into yourself in controlling the situation.
Moreover, put yourself in a relax mode and think an idea how to subside the issue. It is easier to have thought about the situation first , what it triggers and how to resolve it . It would be nice to calm down your child and allow her to be part of solving the problem rather than getting yourself in and taking it on yourself. You are not the primary concern here , it is your child and what driving her behavior to go haywire. Look for the problem instead just like finding the missing link.
