My Granddaughter will not wear the appropriate clothing for the time of the year. She will not wear underwear at all which is an issue because some day she will start her periods. She wears the same pair of shorts and T-shirt everyday. She wears her shorts under her butt. You would thing that would be uncomfortable. Thank goodness her t-shirt is long. She goes to a school for Autism so they are used to that kind of thing.
She will not wipe after going to the bathroom, so she smells like pee all the time.
Now for some reason she started peeing her pants on a regular basis. She understands very well that its not the right thing to do, but she does it anyway. She has been in OT and Sensory therapy since the age of 3 but it really hasn't helped with the clothing issues and the accidents in her pants. Should we make her wear different clothing even though she is a big girl and could have quite the meltdown and hurt someone. Any idea's would be appreciated.
We have tried to buy different soft clothing. But to no avail. Should we put up with the fight and make her wear them or should we hope and pray once she realizes that her behavior is inappropriate she will want to change her clothes on her own. Someone please help! Bubby
