  • How do you tell the difference between true OCD and regular toddler/preschool 'isms?

    Answered on 5th January 2009:

    i am not sure, rosana, but currently hauling my third kid through toddlerhood, i have accepted that anything goes. these kids act erratically and irrationally. it does clear up though. my boundary of 'normalcy' would be around health and safety. my daughter started showing OCD symptoms at 2, when she tried everything not to have a bowel movement. we didn't even have a chance to potty train her, she was already deathly afraid of doing it in her diaper! then she showed other behaviors that concerned us. we kept our cool, baked a lot of fibrous cakes and cookies and after a year of struggling, she overcame all her fears. i think OC behavior is pretty age appropriate in a toddler/preschooler who is asserting herself in the physical world away from mom/dad. as long as certain things are controllable, the unexpected is easier to handle. if they don't move through it, or if there's some danger element, i would connect with a pro. good luck in the trenches:)

  • Who can give me some advice on how to market my product? It is new, fun and proven to be loved by kids all over.

    thanks, susan! I did just order a bunch of businesscard sized promotional cards to hand out/leave behind, etc. I also started donating to silent auctions at several schools. I haven't asked any websites yet, but will get on that too. I guess i have felt my site isn't all that good, but need to get over that feeling! the press releas thing hasn't worked out for me yet, but I'll give it another whirl. thanks so much for taking the time to support me in this!
