Is it normal for a teenager to want to wear diapers and pee and soil them?

User Avatar
I would not say it is Not Normal! but rather it is Very Rare. As an Adult Baby I Have always worn diapers due to incontinence. If a Teenager suffers from incontinence and wants to wear diapers than that is normal. With just under 64 million people in the USA choosing to wear diapers for comfort or emotional or sexual need It is common enough to say that it is a Normal part of human ego. If a teenager wants to wear diapers and run around showing people that they are wearing a diaper that's not normal. Adult / Teen Babies, Diaper lovers, and Sissy Babies have nothing to do with Pedophilia. We want to be the child plain and simple. My Adult Baby age is 12 months old, when I regress I act just like a 1 year old. But in the end it is just an act.
Asked in Parenting and Children, Languages and Cultures, Learning a New Language

Is it much easier for children to learn a second language than it is for adults?

User Avatar
It’s common to hear adults lament that they didn’t start learning a second language earlier since it’s much easier when you’re younger, but this is somewhat of a misconception. Children and adults learn languages differently, and yes, children have the edge when it comes to achieving native-like mastery. That’s partly because children use the “deep motor area” of their brains to learn new languages—this is the same part of the brain that controls actions that come second nature to us, like tying a shoe. As you age, the window for learning in the deep motor area narrows, so adults learn languages with other parts of the brain—and thus, they’re often less natural speakers of their second language. But it’s important to keep in mind the different situations in which adults and children learn languages. Most children who pick up a second language are exposed to it constantly and pick it up the same way they pick up their native language, even learning them simultaneously. Adults, however, may take on a second language in college or later, while having additional responsibilities, expectations, and stressors. Unlike adults, children are allowed to make mistakes and learn at a much slower pace without having to worry about failing in an academic, social, or professional sense. Furthermore, according to a paper published in the journal Cognition, “studies that compare children and adults exposed to comparable material in the lab or during the initial months of an immersion program show that adults perform better, not worse, than children ... perhaps because they deploy conscious strategies and transfer what they know about their first language.” So in a nutshell, adults aren’t drastically worse than children at learning a second language—they even outperform children when learning under the same conditions—but they do have some disadvantages. In most cases, though, they simply don’t receive the same exposure and opportunity.

Asked by Erin Hand in Parenting and Children, Sugar and Sweeteners, ADD-ADHD

Does sugar really make kids hyperactive?

User Avatar
Not for most children. Contrary to popular belief, many studies have proven there's no link between most kids' sugar consumption and their level of activity. Some kids can be affected more than most, like those with ADHD or those who are more sensitive to blood sugar spikes—but these cases are the exception to the rule. Some researchers suggest the perceived link between sugar and hyperactivity comes from the conditions surrounding sugar intake. High-energy events, like birthday parties, often have sugar-rich treats as a centerpiece of the festivities—it’s not the sugar that’s hyping them up, pediatric dietitian Kristi L. King suggests, but the adrenaline. Further, one study illustrated that parents who think their children have consumed sugar rate their kids’ activity levels higher, even if they never actually had any sugar. So, although there are some notable exceptions, the link between sugar and hyper kids seems to be mostly imagined.

Children are often infantalized and babied, as if adults expect the least from them. With reasonably high expectations, children will strive to achieve how adults see them.

What to do with a 5 year old who throws fits every morning when getting dressed for school?

User Avatar
First you should take your five year old to a child psychologist to try and see why your child refuses to go to school. They may be fearful of their peers or have separation anxiety. Many children go through this. If the psychologist feels the child is going through the norm then tell your child they ARE going to school and they are going the way they are dressed (and that means even if they are in PJ bottoms with T-shirt on top.) It won't take long for them to get the message (their peers will see to that.) This is not uncommon at all. I am sure by now you have asked your five year old why they don't want to go to school and you'll get 'because I don't want too.' This answer isn't proposed to you to make you go crazy, but to a 5 year old they just simply can't understand their own emotions. This is a time for mom and dad to teach their child the learning curves of life to make them a complete and independent person as they grow up.

Should you let your son wear pantyhose?

User Avatar
Assuming your son is on the young side, say 8-12, then I wouldn't worry too much about it. The chances are good that wearing pantyhose is just a phase, and he will grow out of it. I'd imagine that he is doing it because he likes the feel of a sheer material on his legs. In no way does this mean that he is gay or somehow perverted, just that he likes pantyhose. As long as he understands the limits of his behavior, (i.e. wearing hose is an at-home thing, he should be careful discussing what he is doing with his friends, maybe he should wear long pants while he wears hosiery,) and knows that what he is doing may make some people uncomfortable, he should be allowed to express himself in this manner. You should be, or at least pretend to be, understanding and supportive. If he is made to feel shamed or embarrassed, it could lead to problems later in life. If it makes him happy, let him try this out for a while. Set limits if need be, and don't worry - lots of people do lots of things that others find...odd. ================================================== The 1st answer / advice here given ("Assuming your son...") is very good. I will just add that there is nothing wrong with this wearing. It is far more common than most people think. Many (not just 2 or 3) Hosiery companies now make / sell Pantyhose strictly for Men. http://shapings.com/Merchant/merchant.mv?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=S&Category_Code=MEN (also keep in mind, Men wore tights before Women. ) [It is just a society/television/magazines thing now that 99.997% of us sadly follow] Many Men even in the popular media always try to break out and wear Pantyhose in public. This happens every few years. "Grunge" rock music guys starting wearing cargo pants with long underwear, then switched to black tights, then navy or white and some went to sheer Pantyhose. But that was at the end of 'grunge' music and we didn't see much after that. But then it always starts again and again. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BIOUo8ToVrI If your son told you about this (how you found out) you should be very flattered as so many males wear Pantyhose but rarely tell people, especially family about it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9v0CdRn7XVY&feature=related Not just Men in general but also in the military. Pantyhose (Nylons) are a great defense against blisters, and is taught by the US Air Force to males during cold climates to aid in wicking moisture away from the feet to prevent common foot related problems with too much moisture such as sweat induced trench foot during field exercises.

What should you do if you caught your teenage son or daughter wearing diapers even though they don?

User Avatar
Nothing. Just let them be. If you must intrude, just ask them if there's anything y ou need to talk about. If they say no, then respect their privacy.if its a boy take the diapers away from him and tell him its unmanly and what sissies wear.if its a girl let her wear them,she just wants to be cute and little girlish at times.it is more normal for girls to wear diapers than it is boys.girls just like to be babyish at times.

What age is it OK for a teenage boy to wear nothing in bed?

User Avatar
Whether or not a teenage boy wears nothing in bed depends on where he is; a large number of teenage boys wear nothing to bed. If he is in a room by himself and puts on clothes when he leaves his room, it should be fine. If he is sharing a room with other people who may not enjoy it, he should not do it.

Three reasons why parents may need guidance in dealing with teenaged children?

User Avatar
Being a teenager is one of the hardest part we have to face in life, that's the time when we go though body changers, peer pressure, in need for attention, Lack of love, Independence, Stress, School. Some Parents refuse to understand, why they're teens behave in such an unmanly way and how to deal with the situation. Teens are in between of being a child and adult, however they have their own opinions and are capable enough to express it. Parents maybe need to listen and be a little more understanding towards their teens. They need to understand how stressed it might be for they're teen children and put themselves in that situation. Which includes opening up to your child and try understanding and listening.
