How to stop an autistic child from damaging property all the time?

He won't listen and just is too rough with doors and property and will just scream and scream over you if you try to explain anything and he does not understand consequences like "If you put holes in the walls you will not get new toys because I have to spend money on fixing the wall. He doesn't understand that and just starts screaming hysterically about not getting new toys and jumps up and down hard. He is 13 and getting bigger and bigger so I"m scared about the future and he also hits me.

Before puberty he wasn't like this. It's puberty has made him much more aggressive, less affectionate and less social and waaaay less friendly and cuddly than he was at 12.

Also his dad died when he was 8.

    A belt to the backside. Doesn't matter if they are retarded or not, they need a belt to the back side. 

    He DOES understand. He simply keeps doing it since you don't hold ot your word and don't smack him

    Look into possible food sensitivities such as dairy or wheat. Look this up, and try an elimination diet. Peanut products, peanut butter, etc. can also be an issue.

      Do people do that in the USA? Wouldn't a child need to be convicted of a crime to do that. Damaging their own home  is that even a crime when you're a special needs kid? I don't think so?

    Because puberty is know to make children polite loving angels. Get him a therapist or a psychologist specialising in working with autistic people.

    If this were true you would've been working with ABA specialists, OT, etc and had all kinds of coping techniques.

      You think every parent with an autistic child has no disabilities themselves and is a little perfect person with a perfect job like you. You don't know much.
