Once, Calder scalded himself during a meltdown. I was at work and my mom was taking care of him. There was a pot of boiled chrysanthemum soup on the stove and he shoved it down in anger. The hot soup splashed onto the floor and rebound onto him. Fortunately, the scalds didn't turn into blisters. I thought the experience would have made him fearful of hot surfaces. Unfortunately, it has the opposite effect: now he touches everything he thinks is hot.
