I am a step mum to my partners 3 year old and he has a really bad habit of making himself gag !!! The other day I sat and watched him put his belt in in mouth and feed it down until he gagged and I shouted at him, called him a silly boy, and not to do it, my partner then took his belt off of him so he couldn't do it again he was wearing it at the time, he then about half hour later stuck his fingers down his throat and gagged the time before this he actually made him self sick ...... What do we do to stop him ?

It's really concerning me I've spoke to my partner about it and I think he needs to see a therapist too... Because surely it's not normal ... I think it may be an attention thing he's doing l, which he doesn't need to do because he gets are full attention straight away, :( it's just so panicking because what if he gets something stuck ?!!!

Honestly if my kid were doing that I would speak to his doctor about getting a referral to a therapist. He may need to be evaluated for a mental/emotional health disorder.

Or... it could be that he likes the reaction you guys give him when he does it, so he's doing it for attention. I've never had a kid do something like that though... so I'd definitely be concerned.
