I have always found it difficult to play with my son because he is developemently delayed and we are finally figuring out whats wrong with him. My son is a big sensory seeker as well. We just had a baby girl and I was soo scared bringing her home because he is such a mommys boy especially where i have been a stay at home mom because i was laid off. So for the first month I was keeping her away from him. Everyday he is getting more and more interested in his baby sister. Now if she is laying on the bed, he kisses her. Unfortunately he doesnt know his own strength so we really need to watch him. He tries to play with her when she is on the floor. We actually find he has calmed down some and becoming more aware of her.

There are only certain things that we can play with our son which are his sensory activities. I think its going to be interesting in the future when are little girl gets bigger and wants to play with her brother because right now its on his terms.

My older kids have times they can play without my son every day. They are more tolerant of his sometimes wild behavior if they know that later they can play in peace. They also love to do his sensory activities with him and that is a way they can all play together and be happy.

Hi Lisa. I have a 2 1/2 year old with sensory issues. I don't have any other children, but I sometimes find it difficult to play with my son. He is a big sensory seeker, and loves to jump and crash into things, especially me! He sometimes is too rough when he plays with his friends,and pets. He doesn't understand that this hurts us because it is enjoyable to him. Does you son enjoy rough play, or is he tactile defensive? If he is sensitive to touch, maybe that is why he doesn't want to play. What kind of activities does you middle son enjoy? Maybe you could try one of those activities when they play together. Hope this is helpful.
