My 15-year-old son, Miguel, for the past year and a half, has constantly been saying that he wants to date his doctor's daughter (she's 5 or 6, never meet her, seen her, and know very little about her). I have been telling him that he doesn't even know what she looks like and that it's disgusting and gross. But he won't stop saying it!!! What can I do???

"What can I do???"

since this is posted in the "Special Needs Children" section:
with what classification has Miguel diagnosed ? that might give us a clue.

If he’s never seen her or met her I would just not engage him when he says it. I don’t think think that telling him that it’s gross and disgusting is a good idea as he may make him feel like you think “he’s” gross and disgusting. He’s a kid and I am sure it will pass.
On the other hand maybe he’s saying it because he knows it pushes your buttons. I am ADHD too and I can remember doing things that I knew my mom would react to... just because I could. Kind of payback for some perceived injustice that I may have been feeling.
Or quite simply because I just wanted to be a P.I.T.A.

Sounds like he gets a rise out of upsetting you. Has he previously shown any interest of this sort in much younger children? If so, you may have a problem that needs immediate attention. But if this is something new - button-pushing is the most likely explanation.

How does he even know his doctor has a daughter?

Does he tell his doctor or just you?

What does his doctor say?

She appears to be using a new name: Mildred Li. See above thread.
