I wasn't sure exactly where to post this, so I'll start here. I have a 5.5 year-old son who gets angry at the eating sounds of his 2.5 year-old sister. He has a hard time eating near her, and he makes these grunting noises that I assume are to help him manage the anxiety he feels. Within the last week, he has started bumping her with his head when she makes any sort of noise with her mouth. He is a very happy child, and appears typical to me in everything except this. I'm just wondering if this is starting to rise to the level of needing outside help because it's disrupting our family. I'm also concerned that it's going to make my daughter feel badly about herself for no other reason than she's a human being who needs to eat!
Does anyone have experience with this sort of thing? If so, did you seek help?
Thanks for reading. Any ideas are welcome!
