I’m sitting here quite upset. Our autistic neighbour 10 has taken a real dislike to our family. He used to be good friends with my son 8. Now for no reason we have him standing looking in my house giving fingers. just standing staring in. Hitting and bullying my son. Put my sons scooter in the salt grit bin. Kicking him of his bike. Giving me total cheek. Poinsoning other kid against him. Making up stories about my partner. I’m at my wits end. Iv tried to ignore. Earlier he was ringing my door bell, but just standing in the street laughing. I went to his door but he was out playing again the moment I walked away. I was quite upset talking to his dad saying Iv had enough. His dad won’t do anything. We have already had the police out to them both for his dad shouting at my child twice. The son is telling his dad lies. This little boy is very dangerous. He’s very big for ten. We are thinking about an Asbo as the next thing to do?

Asbo’s aren’t a thing anymore.
You need to speak to your police community support officer about what action can be taken. How did he get hold of your sons scooter? I would for now withdraw your son from playing outside even supervised for his own safety. You can take him elsewhere for outside play like a park away from where the boy is.

We have already had the police and he did mention something about an asbo we are in Scotland. He said we can go down the route. The boy should be supervised. The scooter was taken and put in the salt bin from the pavement. He put my sons bike in the burn a few weeks ago. I try and take my son away as much as possible ie swimming, skate park. Still cheeky if I’m there. I’m ready to go back on my anti depressants. It’s so hard not to talk back.

I have no advice but just came to say this makes me angry on your behalf. Autism is no excuse for bullying. His dad should be keeping him inside to teach him a lesson. I’m sorry you and your son are going through this. Hope you get it sorted out.

Go down that route then. If he is physically assaulting your child to take his possessions then press charges every time.

Thanks for your advice, it’s very much appreciated. His dad doesn’t seem to be interested in any of this. I really don’t want to live in this street anymore. Yes I think the police is the only answer now.

Sounds like the apple hasn't fallen very far from the tree if the dad is aggressive as well. Being autistic is no excuse (if his condition is that bad he should have constant supervision to keep his behaviour in check) so yes, call the police ever single time there is an incident. And keep notes of what has happened, so that if details are needed in the future then you have a list.
