Teaching a Child to Greet Others

  1. Is it possible that my 6 year old is being messed with inappropriately? When he chews on his shirt and its sop and wet more then a typical chewing on the shirt is,it’s his way of dealing with it? Very nervous mom looking for advice.

    1. There’s really little way of knowing from this limited amount of information. I would consider – has he chewed from before the stressor? Does he chew to self soothe? Does he seem to have other sensory issues? Is he easily redirected? Is he able to talk about the stressor itself? Does the chewing improve when he is away from those things? You might also take an appointment with an OT to get a better answer.
