Sounds like a better present would've been a set of these:

Why are people always trying to "raise awareness" for such RARE conditions

Sorry your snowflake suffers or whatever, but yes, have doctors put down their research on cancer to cure your kid of munching plaster

Whoever this kid goes down on, whether a man or woman (way in the future) better be careful,

I'm sure if someone smacked that kid hard enough, he'd find a way to control those cravings.

That's.... wow.

I am overwhelmed by your wit and acumen. Tell me, did you study to reach such heights, or were you born with it?

"It causes him to crave inedible objects, including stones, paper and moss"

If he starts eating any food from Hooters, lock him up and throw away the key.

Nah, as with any bachelor party, if you're going to Hooters, you stop and eat first.

Getting him molested by Mr.Rogers? I dunno I hear he charges quite a bit.

Doubtful. Pica at that age means there's something a whole lot worse wrong with him than just "inability to control cravings." Back in the day, they called it "organic brain dysfunction" and it would have meant a lifetime of institutionalization.

I'm not sure living in an inedible room is going to be a whole lot better for him, in the long run...

TFA says he's autistic so who knows how he'll be in the long run. It's a bad sign he can't speak at six though . i think the biggerbstory is that the parents have resorted to using  a CCTV

Count me as one of those that after some light reading on the topic thinks this 'disorder' is entirely self-reinforced behavior issues.

So then it would be:
*nom nom* WAHHH! *nom nom* EYAAHHH! *nom nom* AIIIOOUU! *nom nom*
All. Day. Long. Until the sauce is removed.

Some autistic kids will hit self hard, cry persecution, then hit self hard again out of frustration and pain.

I don't know about that, I mean he already doesn't mind the taste of carpet.

I see no mention of a father present in the home, but there is a mention of a younger sibling.  Also, Mom mentions he was this way since birth, and that she quit her job to take care of him.  Living in welfare housing, but getting private donations to outfit a state of the art room.  Then, she mentions that he tries to keep her in his room if she checks on him, so she uses CC-TV, so as not to go in there too often.

This story stinks to high heaven.  I hope child services gets involved and makes this woman get some parenting classes and respite care, gets the child some intervention for the autism and education, and moves the sibling to Dad's or Grandma's house so Mom can actually focus on this kid only.

when i was young i was told NOT to eat paint chips.  so i spent ever waking moment of the day worrying about paint chips flying into my mouth by themselves

See, this is the down side to the unavailability of lead-based paint. If the kid is going to go all Hansel-and-Gretel on the walls, doors, and bed posts, you might as well make it taste good.

Zach's Pica leads him to try and eat the carpet at his home

Go on....

She is neither a single mother nor does she live in social housing, and severely autistic people often benefit from quiet space, but I'm glad you got this opportunity to spew your judgemental vitriol on someone who is trying her best to cope with an almost unimaginably difficult infant.
