Teen with Down's Syndrome: increasing meltdowns, and violent towards me as her parent
At my wit's end with my daughter's behaviour when out and about. Small things trigger it. She is in puberty and people say it's hormonal, but isn't that just an excuse? She's 17 and it's getting worse. Refuses to listen to me when I say no to something, then has a complete meltdown in the shop or street, lashing out at me. Almost like "terrible twos" but at 17. How do I handle this?
