Mom looking for help!
I have three children, son 15, daughter 11, and my youngest is 7 and I have been noticing for some time now that she is different. This all started when she started school at age 5. She hates to wear clothes. She refuses to wear underpants because they feel funny.
Her first year of school was sweat pants and t shirts that were washed over and over again so they were worn. She also would not wear socks. Today She is still not wearing underwear and now she has one pair of pants that she will wear. I found some socks that were seamless so I have won that battle except I have to put them on her three or four times before they feel ok. I dread the mornings wondering what will bother her and if she will have a melt down because of it.
Her eating habits are not that good as well, very picky with textures of food and color. She refuses to go to bed at bed time and will fight it till she just crashes. She is constantly going from one emotion to the next and I get so lost and confused not knowing if I should scold her for being bad or hug her because I dont think she can help it.
Her brother and sister are constantly complaining about her and have said they wish she wasn't born, I hate that they feel that way. I have thought about a therapist, but I am so against the meds. Any suggestions?
