Why are you saying to ignore bad behavior. They need to learn how to live in the real world if they are to be accepted. Bad behavior is not acceptable
They can learn how to control most of their bad behavior over time. But, ignoring bad behavior is not going to teach them anything or help anyone. You need to teach them what bad behavior is and that it is not acceptable. You can teach the child the method of repeating affirmations on a daily basis to help control the meltdowns. I'm not saying this is easy or a quick way to control meltdowns, but it is an appropriate method of learning and it can help along with the teaching methods you supply.
But, it is my opinion, no bad behavior should be ignored. The child needs to be taught the behavior was bad and some methods of trying to prevent the bad behavior.
My grandchild has asperger syndrome. I have bipolar disorder. Medications and teaching are used to treat both bipolar and asperger syndrome. I am saying that a teaching method that helps me may also help my grandchild and others with asperger syndrome.
If you disagree, please explain. I am open to suggestions.
