Daughter's Friend is a sensory seeking child
by Jo Ann
My daughter is 12 years old and in he first year of Middle School. She has a friend who is generally nice, and comes from a good family, but is a sensory seeking child.
Always touching my daughters face, bear hugs, bumping into her, etc. Exhibits annoying behavior.
My daughter tells me that her friend doesn't have many other friends because of this.
What could my daughter do to cope with the constant need of her friend to touch her? She does tell her to stop, and the behavior is always repeated.
