Child Hoards Toys

My son is 3 1/2 and has a habit of piling all of his toys anywhere he can, under his covers of his bed, on the couch, behind the couch everywhere... He thinks that someone is going to steal them and he needs to build a home to make them safe. It has driven me totally crazy and now it is at the point that it is a problem at preschool. He even have a occupational therapist looking at him for abnormal behavior. His therapist said that it was not normal and that she actually had never seen anyone do it before.

Being Harassed by CPS Because My 10 Year Old Has a Normal Hygiene Problem

As a parent of a ten year old boy, I've done my research over the last few years as my son has gotten closer to puberty; Both through the web and through family members in many job facets and their experiences that have consistantly told me his behavior is normal. Psychologists, teachers, parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles; They all tell me that for a boy of his age, not caring about his hygiene is normal. Given my own experiences with myself and my brother, I can truthfully say that it's not just boys, it's all children. ...
