So help me God

There must be a better way to deal with the frustration of raising my grandkids. So, help me, God.

I have read enough about Asberger's Syndrome to be book smart, but the application of effective coping eludes me.
I have always held very strong opinions as to child rearing. Anytime I ever saw a kid sass or hit their parents, I would cringe and think, "Why doesn't that parent make their child mind?"
My kids knew better. They also knew when to say please and thank you. Usually all it took was one stern look from Mom and they knew they better behave and if they didn't behave I had no reservations about spanking their bottoms. I absolutely believed that misbehaved or bratty kids were the total fault of parents being too lenient.
Then God sent TM to me to raise.
Totally changed my perspective on parenting.
Now I have no clue how to reach this child and am completely frustrated daily.
So, I am blogging.

Like I said under his pic, it really is a good thing God made him so cute.

Matthew 17
[4] Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
[5] While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.
[6] And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid.
[7] And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid.
[8] And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only.
[9] And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead.

Revelation 16
[19] And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
[20] And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
