Bullying must be a common behavior that Asperger children must endure. I have read about other children who have had similar experiences as the one I am describing today.
.
One day when Ben was in middle school, I was at his house when he came home from school. He was sobbing as he got off the bus because some of the students had been really mean to him. This is one of those times when his anger turned into rage. He said, “If I had a gun I would shoot them.” (He did not have access to a gun nor did he know how to use one.) Of course, I tried to calm him and reminded him of what would happen to him if he ever did such a thing or even threatened anything like that. He said, “Well, they deserve it.” Then he stopped crying and straightened his face and said, “Nana, I’m not that stupid.” I reassured him of his valuable worth and of my unconditional love for him. Soon he was feeling better.

I have great concern for children like Ben who experience episodes similar to the one I have mentioned who maybe do not have understanding teachers or parents. These children have enough with which to deal without having to be hurt by bullying.
