ok i have a question. when adam is obsessing about something, current is showerheads, do we feed the obseession or do we try to have limits and boundries. for example, he wants showerheads, he has a minature one that HE bought with his own money, thats chool, when he went to moms for a night she drew and sent home about 5 pictures of shower heads, dad drew and printed 5 or 6 and nanny drew him several too, all this in a 7 days span, oh, and he wont shut up until dad takes the showerhead out of the shower and lets him play with that. i am a true believer in out of sight out of mind, i took the liberty of putting away all of his pictures on wed while he was a t school, he never noticed, played with his toys and never mentioned showerheads, on fri night he asked dad to draw him one and dad did even after i explained to him that since he did not have it right in his face he was not worrying himself over it. well since then he is in full blwon OCD, i put my foot down about removing the shower head from shower tonight, dad got mad said i was torturing him, wtf? isnt giving him all that crap to OCD and worry himself over the true torture?
