Since their thinking processes won't begin to embrace advanced thinking until well into the teens, you need to stay with simple. Instead of trying to provide an elaborate discussion of heaven or eternal love, provide an open invitation to ask questions. Kids will come back again & again. ...Read more

3.9 year old with autism seems ready for potty training but won't sit on potty long enough. Is the iPotty (potty with iPad stand) a good idea for him?
