I like you last line. You are quite right.I also agree with you that your son seems to be rather stressed. Biting fingers like this,while not uncommon,is usually not of this intensity where he chews the skin off.He probably does not realise that he is stressed. Sometimes children bite their fingers if they cannot express themselves properly or are trying to be too good and well behaved.His poor appetite is certainly rather unusual in a boy of this age. Try to get him to relax. Take his mind off things by getting him involved in activities such as learning to swim.Play with him and let him meet and play with other children of his age. If he does not improve he may need to be seen by a child psychologist.
