It's just a Sock!
It is hard to understand the reaction of some children when their tactile system is giving the wrong messages to the brain. The sensory system is the gateway to overall ability of an individual to go through life with few or no distractions. A person has to experience the correct input from the sensory system to be able to use that information in life. When it is not functioning correctly, it sends messages to the brain that are interrupted as pain. The tactile system is well known for giving poor messages when a child hasn’t gone through the correct developmental steps. Learn why your child may be, what you deem, overreacting and what can be done to help the tactile system to regulate for more stress-free living.
