my son has been pulling since he was in third grade (8) and he is now 12. He didn't pull much in 4th grade, but other than that, he has. He does it more when anxious (he sees a therapist, a church pastor, and the psychiatrist), and also when content (when reading, which he LOVES).
Just wondering what you have done to help them cope with it, help them stop (is that possible?), etc.
My son has been diagnosed with ADHD when he was 6, anxiety when he was 11 (although I know he had it for a long long time before the official diagnosis), and the trich when he was 8.
Thanks in advance for support and encouragement.
