I feel like my 6 yr old son may have tactile defensiveness. I have been dealing with this for over a year and it is very frustrating for both my son and I. He has issues with clothes, mainly pants/shorts. He feels like they have to be tight. I buy his clothes,have them taken in in the waist and then he feels he has to wear a belt with them. He says that the pants are hurting him.I say they are too tight,but he won't agree.
He is in tears almost every morning about this. I believe I will take him to the pediatrician and see if she believes its a SPD. Does anyone have any suggestions? I don't know how to handle this daily battle.
