Worried Mom

by Liza Cohen
(Brooklyn, NY)

My 9-y.old daughter has episodes w/repetitive phrases. She only does it to me and her dad. Seems to be OCD, though she says something and then only accepts certain answers from me, if I don't say what she wants (she doesn't tell me the words in advance), she gets upset and repeat the ritual again. Does she try to control me or am I part of her routine? Please help!

Hello there! I think it would be in your best interest to talk to a mental health professional about your daughters behaviors. They are best suited to give you the answers you are looking for.

Be Well,
~ Susan
