They were obsessed with checking to see if their hands were dirty?
My 5 year old literally looks at his hands to check to see if they are dirty at least 30 times throughout the day. For exmaple he will be playing on the playground, then ranomly hold up his hands to look at them, then flip his hands to the other side to check, then go play some more, then check again in a minute (or seconds) later. He will check in the car, before he goes to bed, when he is watching TV, playing legos, whatever.
This has been going on for about a month.
Actually, it started out where he would just ASK me and show me his hands and ask if they are were dirty or if they were bleeding.
I posted it on here, and many of ya'll said I needed to take him to the ped and get a referral for a psychiatrist.
Well, I told him he needed to stop asking me it or we would have to go to the doctor, so now he just looks.
