Today, my father-in law-shared his opinion that autistic kids should be beaten until they act normal. He saw fit to share this while my autistic son was having a meltdown because my father-in-law came to the house without warning, and my son violently hates visitors without prior warning. FML

I hope you never have autistic kids. You know what those treatments consist of? Extreme patience and an understanding that sometimes you just have to ride out the storm.

There are different levels of Autism. And yes, Autistic children can be taught some things. Some things they will not grasp nor can they control. Some children will learn some things while other children will not. Your comment shows that you have no real experience with autistic children and you don't know what you are talking about. A lot of Autistic children need a very specific routine for some things, no amount of "teaching" will completely fix every issue, and some things will get better as the child ages.

Don't have kids. Even if they come out "normal " in your mind, you clearly don't know how to empathize with people. Meds Don't fix everything and to be honest, there isn't anything To fix. Yes I'm a father with an autistic daughter.

Unannounced visitors should be chased off the property with sticks and other injurous objects until they learn to respect the people, including children, upon whom's homes they are intruding.

Your FIL should also know that wild and hungry dogs should be set upon uninvited and unannounced "guests" until they grow some manners and actually come over only when invited and expected...

Your husband needs to tell his father that his parenting "advice" is unwanted and unwelcome. And tell him if he ever speaks that way about your son again he will be unwelcome there. AND he will not be admitted without a heads up call. regardless of your situation with your son, dropping by unannounced is just rude.
