Hi. I am an Aspie mother of an Aspie. I know in my personal experience, as well as that with my son, that writing is sooo very much easier and less stressful than saying something directly to someone else. My son and I have an agreement that he can apologize in a letter form if I promise to always apologize for yelling (which I sometimes do). Also I have found that not forcing him to apologize makes them truly meaningful when they appear. Thats not to say I dont expect an apology for misbehaviour, its just that I tell him how he has hurt my feelings (or his sister, dad, nana, etc) and that I dont want to talk to someone who hurts my feelings, and that an apology would put a band-aid on it.
