Why are you so against taking him to "any kind" of therapist? Our son has/had sensory issues and occupational therapy was super fun for him and extremely helpful. It didn't change who he was, it...

#2 is fine, IF you present it as "oops, let's get that cleaned up." By age 5, my kids knew how to find the...

I find the debate threads completely useless. Many of the arguments people use aren't backed up by research. There's a lot of fear mongering. It's not a debate so much as a shouting match which...

So, if he doesn't like it, is he working at finding her a different name that he's comfortable with? If he's not, then I'd say he's at some level OK with Lillia Fae.
