That I let my 4 year old son be nakie at home? He hates clothes has sensory issues. When people are over he's clothed. I was told I should force him to wear clothes cuz he wears them other places. He does but he hates it. He only does cuz he has too.

 I don't know, but I have a question for you. What made you think to get him tested for sensory issues? Does he have another condition that triggers it? I am just curious as to what triggers sensory issues. Is it just that he doesn't like wearing clothes... a lot of children are like this. Does that mean they all have sensory issues or does it mean that kids just don't like to wear clothes?

no if he is clothed when others come over and when you leave, seems fine to me...I'd hate for my child to be unhappy at home all of the time

Oh no its not just clothes. Its EVERYTHING. right down to temp and texture of food. He will freak out screaming hitting himself if his shirt is too tight or his socks are crunchy( no idea why he says that they are crunchy that's just his wording) he will freak out if anything on his hands. But the nakie thing idk he's always hated clothes. Lol. So I put baggier clothes mostly softer on him. He can't wear collared shirts. He was seeing a therapist but she just wanted to throw him on anxiety meds so we quit going. The Drs and birth to 3 said he has SPD and OCD tendancies. I refuse medication. We go by the book out of sync child. Very helpful.

 Thank you for explaining. I would do whatever I needed to do to make sure my child was comfortable at home. Home is supposed to be a safe haven from the world, right? I hope you get the answers you are looking for.

If he wears them when others are there, then why can't he wear them when you're home alone? A sensory issue doesn't just turn itself off.

I believe one has to have time to relax in between pretending for the normal world.

OP, try and find soft cotton underwear. Then, make a compromise. My youngest is the same way.

No it don't. He just would rather be nakie. I just don't see the big deal about the nakieness. If he's more comfortable nakie why not? That's my point it has nothing to do with the sensory issues. I was just fighting with my mom. And it came up
