My 8 year old daughter has ADHD, ODD & SPD. How do I get her to wear different shoes & clothes? She refuses to wear any other shoes than the ones we got her almost 1 1/2 years ago. They are so small her toes are almost popping out of them. She also refuses to wear socks and that started when she was 4! She has to wear the same panties and pants everyday so I have to do laundry every night. She also licks her lips horribly bad and refuses to use any chapstick. We have bought her every kind of chapstick and she puts it in and then has a complete meltdown because it burns or doesn’t feel right. So I have to set my alarm in the middle of the night and put chapstick on whilenshe is sleeping. Her lips are raw and scabbed over. I get embarrassed because I feel like people think I don’t take care of her. She has brand new clothes, shoes and refuses to wear them. It’s stuff that she has even picked out. It’s exhausting and her temper tantrums are horrible when we ask her to wear something different. I am dreading winter because she refuses to wear snow boots or anything warm. We start counseling soon but I am just at my wits end. She has been to OT and that helped somewhat but only temporarily. Anyone else have a child with these three things? It’s so exhausting and I am just tired of trying to get her to see that her pants have holes all over in them, her shoes are so worn that it makes her walk sideways and she needs to dress warm. I feel like a crazy person dealing with her at times.
