My daughter is almost 2.5 years old and I feel like she acts like a total teenager. I was researching OCD because I swear she has some form of it. SHE needs to put her clothes on and take them off- I can't help her. If I even attempt to help her arm out of the sleeve she throws a huge fit. If SHE doesn't FEEL like going to the bathroom, even when she knows that is the rule- if we leave the house we MUST go to the bathroom before, she throws a fit. If I lift her into the tub to take a bath, she throws a fit because SHE didn't do it herself. She even goes to the extreme for example if I put her shoes on and she wanted to do it, she will literarly take them OFF and put them on again with HER doing it! I don't get it. I tell her that it is okay for mommy and daddy to help her and that she is still a big girl even when she gets help.
Now, if someone else goes to help her that is totally fine. She listens to EVERYONE else and never throws a fit except with my husband and I. My mother in law watches her 3 times a week and she is always the "perfect angel." Lord knows what my daughter gets away with at her MiMi's house. THe other 2 days she goes to school where the teachers LOVE her because she is so wonderful.
Is this happening with anyone else?? Please tell me I'm not the only one with a toddler this compulisve!!!!
