so for at least the last 2 years or maybe longer i have noticed that my son has to line things up like his food, toys, and clothes. but big time with the toys and if someone messes it up god help them. i have big time Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) issues with like locking and relocking the doors, making sure the burners on the stove are off, making sure the lights are all off if leaving the house. stuff like that. and i don't know if his Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) of lining things up is a learned behavior from me or is he really has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). when i was a little girl instead of cooking with my easybake oven i would organize it and all the stuff the came with it in my toy box and if something didn't fit just right i would give it to my mom and tell her something like i just don;t want it anymore or i don't like it. i always liked having things organized and neat. but as a parent now i have gotten a little bit better at not freeting to much about the small stuff. when i was a single parent my Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) was at its worst and when i got married i learned to trust my husband to share the responsilbity of making sure the stove was off and the lights and checking the kids 2 - 3 times a night. it is still pretty bad but again are my kids lerning this behavior from me or not? something to keep in mind is that my kids all have the same mother but three different dads and my current husband is not the bio father to any. my husband is a great man and a pateint one. i applaude him for taking on this wonderful family. so sorry for the long vent. but am i teaching my kids these disorders or did they just inheaited all my problems. sometimes i feel like they got all the mental issues from me and everything else from their bio fathers.
