That's sort of what we do to: don't try yo stop the stimming, just redirect him to a more appropriate place. Like ds' recent stimming object was the blade of our fan, but he leaned in to close and cut his lip , so I got him a little pinwheel to spin instead.
Yes!!! Ds had a cold last weekend, and I noticed thahe was stimming A LOT more than usual, like opening and closing my bedroom door for nearly 5 hours straight!
We can not have fans running here really. Jay always wants to stim off of them and I am afraid he will get hurt. He loves watching the ceiling fans spin at the market.
Ceiling fans were my first clue although I didn't know it at the time. We moved to another state when my twins were 6 months. We got a temporary apartment and there was a ceiling fan in his room. I remember how Nathan always looked for it when I changed his diaper but Rae couldn't care less about it. When we bought a house when they were 9 months I remember saying, "Oh look hun, a ceiling fan...Nathan loves ceiling fans." Little did I know???
Fans are dangerous. I think they are supposed to make it so you can't stick your fingers in and touch the blades but I know that I am able to touch the blades on ours so in no way do I trust the kids with them.
