My 7 y/o daughter has high functioning autism. Her 5 y/o sister used to copy her behaviors when she was little, but then slowly outgrew it. Now I'm not sure if it was copying all the way. She (the 5 y/o) has always been super super super whiney. Over everything! Lately its gotten so much worse. Major melt downs at the drop of a hat (maybe literally)! "She looked at me funny, my shoes wont go on right...etc" These are screaming tantrums. I was wondering if it was just because she was spoiled but for the life of me I couldn't figure out how we'd managed to spoil her-if anything we were very strict with her.
