I know how you feel, I have a non-verbal 11 year old autistic son. I love him to death, but sometimes it’s really hard.

Because no funeral ever ran late?

I mean, he's got a point.

while your son may have a disability, you deserve it for lying to him

Because no funeral ever ran late?

How was the parent supposed to know the funeral would have lasted 3 minutes longer than what they thought?

He probably wants to get back to his painting or sculpting or whatever he normally does. Sometimes creatives can be pretty insistent on their passions.

That's a lot of assumptions.

I'm so sorry you went through that ordeal. Has he ever complained before about timing?

sometimes with autistic children it's better to divert their attention away from the time or simply let them know there is no definite time it will be done when it is over.

This one is on you. You know your kid is autistic. So you know that means he needs concrete information and direction. If you told him 11:30, follow through, or tell him you don't know how long it will take. Don't give him a time frame and then back out on it and blame that on him. You did that.

Cannot like this enough! If you told him 11:30, you should have left at 11:30. Or made other arrangements for him. Or not given him an exact time, because you should know how your kid is going to react when you don't follow your words with your actions.
