My husband is especially hurting because he doesn't think he will ever be able to be close to our only boy, 3yo. The kid is absolutely OCD, though undiagnosed besides by the 2 of us. He knows the punishment for disobedience, touching things, etc. But he thinks it's worth it. He is incredibly curious and must satisfy that at all costs. He also learns by touching *everything,* and I do mean everything. LOL
So I know that he has a bad habit and needs to replace it with a good habit. But what? In general he is very obedient, unless he gets away from us and sneaks away or out of his room. This is especially true during nap time and bed time. We do have a door alarm on his door so we know when he comes out, but we have found of late we are not hearing it when he sneaks out (his room is upstairs, but mostly we "live" downstairs). My husband will be picking up another on his way home from work so we have one upstairs and downstairs. In general, I'm just wondering with what I can replace this bad habit (OCD tendencies and curiosity), and how. Ideas? Thoughts? Advice?
