Today, my son still sticks his fingers in plug sockets, cuts charging cables for devices, licks batteries and so on, because he enjoys the electric shocks, he thinks they are funny so I can’t even trust him when he sleeps at night, in case he wakes up while we’re asleep and does something stupid.

Maybe a problem, maybe a coming aptitude… When I was young I was somewhat fascinated by the feel of electricity. Coincidence or not, I became an electronic engineer later in my life. Well before that I lost my fascination for feeling electrical shocks but retained a fascination for what you could do with electricity. Of course if I (or your son) should lose his life or suffer a debilitating injury, then that fascination comes to nothing. Teach your son about both the dangers of electricity and it’s uses to the degree you can or find someone else who can accurately do that. He needs to understand the hazards and the basics of how electricity can flow through your body and can cause serious danger at times.

You should resist this re-volt-ing behavior before he burns down your Ohm!

Does he have a developmental disorder or is he just super childish? Better stop him before he starts performing Jackass acts.

Well, I'm not feeling the need to ampere him this time.

I'm with Chazzster. I used to electrocute myself on a regular basis. I'm now an electrician. Maybe get him some educational info about electricity.

This could totally be a superhero origin story

Sounds like he's got a shocking future ahead of him - electric BDSM.

Get an electric fencer and set it up and let him go crazy zapping himself. Just make sure you follow the directions for installation, IDK if they are dangerous if not set up properly. You could always get one of the solar ones, they don't attach to electricity directly.
