He Hates Scratchy Tags

Most of his life he's been troubled by textures. "No scratchy clothes!"  If I miss a tag and it hits his neck just right, he could go into orbit trying to remove it. Shirts better have a soft feel to them or he could short circuit. Nothing too tight around the waist (not too loose either). But the biggest issue of all has been with socks. I gave up years ago trying to find a brand he would wear right side out. All socks are scratchy on the inside and feel very soft on the outside. None of our first 3 children even knew this. I've searched the stores for expensive, cheap, name brand, store brand & came to this conclusion....all socks need to be worn inside out so their soft side rests against his sensitive skin.  Fortunately  friends have quit saying "your socks are inside out."  This isn't a battle worth fighting.  Fabric issues are common with ADHD kids. I'm wondering if he'll wear his socks inside out when he's an adult....guess I'll have to wait and see!
