How Can I Encourage My 5 Year Old To Keep His Hands Out Of His Mouth?

How Can I Encourage My 5 Year Old To Keep His Hands Out Of His Mouth?

My 5 year old used to often put his hands in his mouth, mostly in new situations or when he was asked to do something challenging I think. But about 2 months ago, he started doing it all the time, regardless of the situation. His classmates don't want to be around him. His teacher is always telling him to wash his hands or put hand sanitizer on them. Any advice would be much appreciated.

4 Years Old Boy Humping Pillows And Gets Erection. Is This Normal?

I have 4 years old under the spectrum. Since he was two years old he is humping pillows whenever the opportunity comes a home. He does not do such thing at daycare, but whenever he comes home from daycare, he eats and then start humping pillow on the bed. I saw he has erection. Is this normal?. Usually he does that for over 30 minutes. I do really need to know if anybody saw something like this in the past.

Most recently I have seen her humping the ground while watching tv, I just ask her to sit up, idk if I’m doing the right thing. She’s so sensitive, its difficult to joke with her because it seems she’s offended by… read more

Has Anybody Heard Of Cindy Hebbard: Freedom For Autism?

So, I saw this add for a program for our kids that claims 100% positive results. Apparently, it is tailored to each individual child to take specific steps to improve their behavior, diets, social skills, etc. without the use of ABA.
