<div style="font-style:italic;">(as he is not on the spectrum, we don't allow stimming any place but the privacy of his bedroom, and he hardly ever goes into his bedroom, so I'm 100% confident that the stims have reduced). .</div>

THANK YOU so much for your post! Very, very helpful. Can you elaborate more on this - not allowing stimming in any place but the privacy of his bedroom?<br><br>
How do you enforce and reinforce that rule? What happens(ed) when / if he stimmed in a public place?<br><br>
I'm looking for ideas, desperately, to try to contain the behavior or reduce the behavior.<br><br>
It scares off other kids. Makes running errands so debilitating, and gets under my skin after more than an hour of it, and generally just wears me down.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

<div style="font-style:italic;">If you don't want to be in the house with him all day, then that's the LAST place you should be - and I know whereof I speak, I went back to work for a few months the year my ds was 2 and I absolutely required a respite from parenting him all day and night.</div>

Sigh. I wouldn't mind staying at home with my child. Yes, the days would not always go the best due to the ADHD and SPD but I feel I could deal with it a little better/treat it/go to OT appointments.<br><br>
My husband does not believe in the value of a stay-at-home parent and is completely and totally against it.
