You know how you can tell if a kid displays sensory-seeking behavior? Maybe he can spin around and around and around without feeling dizzy. (Me, I get woozy after about two times around.) He actually asks to be tickled. (My mom thinks tickling is tantamount to torture, but her grandson loves it.) He might like to have a parent lie on top of his outstretched body, as if the parent is trying to crush him. (Mr. Tangerine thinks I'm too heavy to lie on top of him for any amount of time, but his kid thinks it's the bee's knees.) And this evening, said kid was lying in a shallow bath, demanding that cup after cup of ice-cold water be poured on him. (Torture! I know! And yet, he shrieks, then smiles and asks for more icy splashing.)
You think this kid will grow up and get hooked on bungee jumping, wrestling, extreme skiing, and manned crash tests?
