12 Ways My Son with Autism is Both Similar and Different from Other Teenagers
My son Tommy has autism. He's 14. I've noticed that he's "different" from a lot of other kids his age, but there are also plenty of similarities as well.
1. Teenagers have a smell about them. Whether it's body odor or too much cologne, some sort of scent is usually wafting from their bodies.
2. I don't have to worry about my son sneaking out at night. He's really big on rules. If I told him to be in bed by 10 p.m., he'll be back from 10 p.m.
3. His moods can be all over the place like any teen. One minute he'll be smiling. The next he'll be glaring at me.
