My 3yr old hates sheets so every night I just lay a blanket on the matress by morning it is messed up again but he will not sleep on sheet, im not sure why but he has sensory issues and I think it has something to do with that.......There is really not much you can do unless you pin them to the matress which if hes strong enough eventually will tear the sheets...

Double sheet.  Put one sheet on one side of the mattress, turn it over and put another sheet on the bottom of the mattress.  When he pulls off the sheet, turn the mattress over.

I understand your frustration!  Two of my children did this and it drove me batty.  I finally found sheets that encased the mattress and zippered at one end.  I tried everything I could think of until then.

They make safety pins just for this, Ihad some an the kids cant work them. but my youngest doesnt like the sheet either and I had to put a fuzzy blanket down.

My best friend has a step daughter with speacial needs and she has to get two sheets and sew them together and then add a zipper. Other wise she rips them off  and can hurt herself.
