The mom warned me that her son was difficult, but apparently, it's more extreme than that. I don't know if he has a "diagnosis", but he's in lots and lots of therapy, including ABA therapy which is for kids on the autistic spectrum. The first half hour I thought the kid was simply a real brat, but then she started telling me about his therapists and it made more sense. Refused to let his parents brush his hair, barely made eye contact, obsessed on the same James train the entire time, etc. I really hope she's happy with some of these, because this was the first kid that I don't feel like I connected with at any time. The bubble machine was literally what saved the day.
