    lovelyboy Member I bought these nice bright green PJ for big difficult child.....
    He announce that he is actually afraid of green!
    So I ask him, afraid like your heart starts beating, like afraid for spiders or afraid like it's weird, I can get use to it?
    He says afraid, like heart beating, like for spiders!
    But if some one else wears green, he thinks its healing to them!
    So strange....!!!!!! Any one else whose child is afraid of a colour!?

    Nope, but it reminds me of the book I never got to read because I forgot the title - the boy defined each day of the week by a color. Defined other things by color as well.

    I think it's cute!

    I remember a movie from a long time ago that was about a child/adult?? with autism. THey found that the child would freak out every time they were by a certain color. It changed their lives, they could pick better and avoid huge problems while working to desensitize the issue.

    For us it is the opposite. Q will always pick green. Want to sit in the green seat, want the green pencil, want green hair, want to buy whatever is green if there is a choice. Very obsessed with green! Our kids would drive eachother NUTS

    It could be sensory related, perhaps the color bothers his eyes?
