Yes she is 6...but everyday she comes home from school with something ripped or filthy - today is was her scarf and her dress - looked like she had sat in mud - last week her top was soaking from her chewing it. She seems unable to eat without using her hands - she is forever putting stuff in her mouth aaaaaargh. She is a bright, funny clever girl but she is driving me nuts - I feel like just dressing her in a waterproof suit and be done with it! Even her friends comment on her eating habits - why is she so messy said one little girl - I didn't have an answer.

Is she clumsy? Does she have any co-ordination problems, eg with handwriting which might hint at dyspraxic tendencies?

She is pretty clumsy - her handwriting is pretty unreadable - don't know anything about dyspraxia - her dad is dsylexic
