14. “No, I don’t want to take my shoes off!” and Sensory Processing Issues

14/4/2016 Stephen went in for his annual assessment wit Occupational Therapist and would not take his shoes off when asked to do some standing/balancing tasks! He said he did not feel comfortable to do it so …. He was not pushed to do so and that means???… he was trying to manipulate me (his mother) to buying him an x-box . I won’t buy an X-box. I sold the last one as I thought Stephen could not control his behaviour around it.

I thought the X-box and  computer  raise his anxiety level and he is acting out  content seen on the X-box.  The $400-$600 X-box is not worth it! I remember from times past having to ask him over and over again to turn the computer or x-box off! “Just one more minute!” he would say. There is only so many times you want to say that to your son.
