Helpless

There comes a point in being the parent of an autistic-like retarded "child" where there is literally nothing you can do to make the situation better during a meltdown and you just have to wait and ride it out.

It could be ten minutes, it could be ten hours, before the "kid" is recovered and calmed down enough to start being in control of themselves again.

The triggers are numerous and mostly out of the parent's control.

Sometimes the only thing you can do is sequester them and do what you can to keep the damage to a minimum.
