My 7 yr old son has been diagnosed ADHD, and has been stealing my underwear and hiding it under his bed. I told him I wasn't mad at him the first time I found out he was taking them, that I just wanted to have my underwear so I could wear them. I didn't want to make a big fuss about it. But it has happened several times since then. He goes to counseling but they don't seem to understand why he is doing it. I've tried talking to him about it but the only answer I got was that he wanted to have something of mine in case I die. At first I was worried it was something sexual, but now I believe he just wanted something close and personal of mine. What are your thoughts on this, does any one have similar problems from their kids? I am open to suggestions on how to deal with this situation.
