My nephew who is 10 has had some weird behaviors lately. We came in after being out side and I was watching tv. He wasent paying atention. then a diaper ad came on. He then look at the Tv with intrest and he was a little wide eyed. Should I be concerned. also he likes to be held and carryed.

No... you shouldn't at all.

Some children are just regressive that way, it don't mean shit.

I'd say no you shouldn't be.

It might have been a coincidence, and as an AB you might just be picking up on stuff that isn't really there. The advert might just have had something interesting about it.
Maybe the voice-over was recognisable, or maybe the advert was humorous.

As for being held and carried... well everybody likes being held, and for being carried... maybe he's just lazy? :p

I wouldn't think much of it if I was you. If he consistently does stuff like that, well maybe... otherwise, forget about it I think.

It is always possible this 10yo lad is a latent (potential) infantilist. It is as likely he is not.

What is important is to help everyone in the family accept this lad as he is. Keeping communication with him open and friendly will become super vital should he start to act-out in more obvious regressive behavior ways. Perhaps with your own background you will be in the best position to help him learn to use common sense.

There still is a mirror site of the When Kids Love Diapers (WKLD)

When Kids Love Diapers

This was created to provide perplexed parents and relatives with some useful suggestions. At this time a committee from a coalition of child advocacy charity organizations is trying to open a set of websites dealing with difficult to explain parenting issues. Included will be a modern and safe version of WKLD as well as a site about contemporary toilet learning.

I wouldn't think anything of it, and I certainly wouldn't be concerned about it. Kids that age love to be picked up and held. Most certainly just a coincidence.

How do you say it . . . . ?

"Overblown and unnecessary"?

Yeah, that's about right.

Leave him alone.

I'm sure it's nothing, but it wouldn't hurt to watch him alittle closer.

I think that you are reading a little bit too much into this, he is only 10, but you never know.

Um you shouldn't look into it too much, because he's still young. *coughs* Well if he really does become an TB I might need to watch my little cousin. When my cousin was six (I was ten) he'd enjoyed acting like a baby, but that could just be kids being kids...or maybe infantilism might be genetic, you never know :sweatdrop:

Don't worry about it. We, as a group of people, tend to see other *Bs when they aren't there. When a diaper advert comes on I look away, not watch it. I would say it was probably nothing. At 10 most kids are more immature than we think - there is a lot of pressure to grow up which means we see ages as more mature than they are often. So that explains liking being held or carried. And there are all sorts of reasons why an advert could catch your attention. Nothing to worry about or get your hopes up about at all.

It can't hurt to watch out for anything, but don't expect anything either, because it probably isn't there. And you definitely shouldn't force it on him or anything. Don't go snooping. There is an off chance he is *B, no more. Don't pay him any more attention than usual or anything, you'll see things that aren't there.

Quick question... how often is he exposed to infants and/or diapers in general? If not much, he is probably just watching out of curiousity for the unusual things. Even still, diaper ads usually drum up an air of akwardness until they pass :D

Don't encourage your imagination..
