My 5 year old (eldest of 3) is a sensitive chap but I’ve recently noticed some behaviours which have made me wonder if he has the beginning of OCD. He touches he wall with both palms whenever he leaves a room or building, and duds a sort of wiggle dance whenever he enters certain rooms. He worries a bit about germs, particularly his younger sister’s. He is also very worried/frightened of certain things and talks about these very very often - getting into trouble, needles, hurricanes, someone he loves dying etc.
We are a fairly relaxed low-anxiety household.
I am worried it will get a lot worse in the future - will it? - and how best to handle it now so it causes him the least harm.
What advice can you offer, oh wise mumsnetters?
