Why do kids chew? As children, chewing is part of their oral development and sometimes, this ‘habit’ carries on into their adulthood.
Chewing, biting, etc. can mean a lot of things for your kids and this should be addressed as part of your child’s needs. To be able to guide your kids towards a safer path for fulfilling their oral sensory needs, we have to know WHY they do this.

Knowing the reason why your kids do this kind of habit will help parents to meet their child’s needs by providing safer options like chewing jewelries. It will save you a lot of shirts and injuries! Hopefully resulting into more relaxed and happier kids.
