My 5 year old son has recently started showing OCD like symptoms. It started after he had a bad cold and he would tell me things like "I might have gotten boogers on my shirt....maybe on puropose"; or he would wash his hands and then keep wiping them on his shirt and say "I might have wet hands still" (even after they were dry). That lasted for about a week and then he stopped doing that kind of stuff so much but now I notice he's doing other things like he'll ask me if I think his toy is gonna break and he'll lose pieces of it or anytime he asks a question he'll say "I might know this but ..... "and then ask. I'm not sure if this is a behavioral thing maybe? He doesn't have all the symptoms of OCD (like hand washing or rituals) but he does have some. I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this? Any help would be Great......I'm starting to get really stressed out.
