“Then, almost suddenly, I couldn’t get my child to get dressed anymore. He went from a happy, cuddly little boy to a boy who’d writhe, pull, scratch, scream, and all out tantrum over getting dressed. “Ow! Ow! Ah! My shirt bothers me!” “My sleeves are bothering me!” “My pants are bothering me!” “My shoes are bothering me!”. The shoes. Oh, the shoes! The shoes were the worst! The “bothering me” phrases always end in tears, tense words, and meltdowns from my son…and sometimes myself.
We have also bought him some more of his favorite KidOFit shoes. They seem to be the perfect shoes for kids with sensory issues. They are the only shoes he will wear without having a full-blown meltdown. I’m not sure I’d still be sane if it hadn’t been for his KidOFit shoes.”
