Autistic child hits, kicks and bites
The kid I babysits hits, kicks and bites me. He is 10 yrs old and high functioning. Should I quit? But I need a job.

RE: Autistic child hits, kicks and bites
I am leaving that job soon since the parent got laid off. I am not going back.

I got attacked again yesterday and the violence is escalating. He was hitting, kicking and throwing things at me. He tried to hit me in the face with an object I consider a weapon. I took it off him.

So today I am wearing old glasses, take my phone and keys in pocket, wear shoes and coat. If he attacks, especially with a weapon I am leaving the room or house and maybe call police. Also try to protect his sister and the dog.

No point giving a timeout because the parents do nothing but make excuses when he attacks me.
