Stories That Touch the Heart - The Emperor's New Onesie

5 years ago

I almost started crying watching this video. The Emperor's New Onesie is a story many of us can relate to.

When I think back to how upset my Vman was as a baby, I wonder what would have happened if I had let him be a naked baby... snow in Chicago be damned! Vman cried CONSTANTLY as a baby. And the entire time, people kept telling me tricks to deal with his issues. As an infant, people, including our caring pediatrician, kept telling us that he was just fine. Hey, babies cry, right?

As pediatricians and the general public learn more about Sensory Processing Disorder, I can only hope that one more mother doesn't have to spend the early years hating herself and wondering what she's doing wrong.

For those of you who want to know what children with tactile defensiveness can be like, here is one girl's story about her reaction to clothing from her mama's point of view.
