Answers for uncomfortable questions, by Elizabeth (Autism-Mom blog). Describes a situation in which her son was asked some uncomfortably personal questions in a multi-player online gaming environment. Most of us have taught out kids not to share personal information online, but it becomes very uncomfortable when they’re directly asked, especially when they’re hard-wired to be honest! She gives some great examples of scripts she brainstormed with her son in the follow-on article – I like the way she thinks through the issues and comes up some good solutions!
