my six year like to twirl my hair when sleepy, my scent has to be on his pillowcase at all time . and when he can't locate my scent he goes off , he carry this pillow around the house. I had to sneak and give him one of my new pillow with my scent on it. I don't get it my others kids did none of this.he sniff his pillow before school and after school and he is ocd.

Who has diagnosed him OCD? If he truly has an ocd issue than a behavioral therapist can give you tips to help him with is obsessions. Provide him one pillow that you have slept with and let him carry that around or whatever to relieve anxiety. You do not have to let him twirl your hair. He is six and needs to start developing some self soothing routines. Just like you would not let him keep a pacifier at this age. If he doesn't already see a behavioral therapist, it is time to start.
