Clothing a real problem - Sensory Defensive
Does anyone's child experience great difficulty with their clothing?
Our dd pulls, tugs and stretches her clothing........often ripping them beyond repair.
This was very difficult a few years ago and it seemed to stop, ...........but it's started again She is 15 and knows better but cannot seem to control this. An expensive problem!
All she can tell us is that she want's the clothing to "feel" a certain way, or "feel even" (partly OCD), but she cannot seem to resist ripping. She is down to one pair of pants that she will only wear to school. She has even ripped her two favorite pair of pants. She resists even letting me wash them and won't let me put them in the drying because she fears they will not feel "right".
Anyone else out there experience this with their TS child? Any suggestions on how to make this better........or help me cope!!!
Being different is special.
