Daughter 4 years old bites lip till it bleeds

by debra

Thank you for your help - my daughter since she was born always chews on stuff, it seems to be stress related. she will chew on fabric, for a few minutes then stop.. now she has started biting her lip till it bleeds, or biting her hand. she also has uncontrollable temper tantrums and is inconsolable. I dont know what to do and get very impatient. I am starting to think there is a problem. A woman at the mall ( a therapist she said) said she was a seeker with sensory integration issues, could that be? if so how can I help her.

she also eats horribly only pizza, chicken nuggets fries and yogurt. sometimes an apple - she will refuse to eat and says she is not hungry if I offer her anything else.
