Seraphim Posted November 10, 2011 Share Posted November 10, 2011 My husband is deployed right now and so the way we relate to him is over Skype. Our son is in the high functioning autistic spectrum. They relate more or less ok in person but over electronic medium getting my son to converse with his dad is like pulling teeth. He is not young, he is 14. The most I can seem to encourage him to relate to his dad this way is for about 2 minutes max and I am being generous with that time. My husband tries and tries to discuss what would be interesting to our son but all the kid does is say, " I miss you a tonne dad." and he walks away. It is hard to explain but it is like he is not making the connection with the person on the screen and being able to converse and relate. I am desperate for some ways to maybe help them relate better. Link to comment
