Hello I have a problem... My son is 3 years of age. He is chewing anything he gets his hands on.. Is there anything I can do to get him to stop this behaviour?  When he chews things up he even swalows the peiced he chews off. I took him to his very first dentist visit last week. We were told we were doing a great job with his teeth and that he has no cavities. But I'm starting to worry he will wear off the enamel. I have been reading up on this and found something called chewies. They are for kids with autism to chw on but my child doesnt have autism . Can you please please help me. I just dont know what to do at all.. I feel like I am banging my head against a wall  trying to get him to stop before school starts back up... HELP                                                                                                                                                             .banging head into wall
