kfeusse Posted February 4, 2012 Share Posted February 4, 2012 I have a son (age 10) who has been diagnosed with minor sensory issues. this is a converstation we had this morning....and I am looking for some advice. Here is the conversation: he said "I hate wearing clothes"....I asked him why and he said because they touch him softly. (this is one of his biggest complaints) So I was talking to him about him about it. And he said somethings like "this is going to bother me for the rest of my life. " it's not my fault I am like this" "I am the only person like this, and it's not fair" "what can I do?" I then asked, "your clothes didn't seem to bother you yesterday, you didn't say anything" and he said, "somedays they really bother me and other days not as much. That is why I sometime put on shorts and tanktops. But even the collar bothers me too. So do the shorts, but at least it's not my whole leg. This is so frustrating!!!!!!" I was feeling his frustration. He obviously can't go without clothes...he also can't go outside in the winter wearing tank tops and shorts (We live in Nebraska)...so what else can I do. Right now he is wearing his younger brother's shirt (it doesn't move "it fits tightly on my body" and a pair of long john bottoms (also doesn't move on his legs.) Any suggestions for me?? I wish I knew how I can help him to get used to wearing his clothes. there has to be something, yes?? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
