My 8 yo dd has been driving us crazy for a few months with constantly "picking up" around the house. She won't stop no matter how much she gets in trouble. If anything at all is on the counter she puts it out of sight somewhere. If clothes are hanging to dry near the laundry room she moves them to another room out of sight. If my purse is hanging on a doorknob in the living room she moves it out of sight. My camera charger was plugged in and she moved that. She says she doesn't want the house to look messy if someone comes over, but this has gotten out of hand and she won't stop! I think it is somehow related to some trouble she started having in school with math (which she now goes to tutoring for). A little more background-she had a lot of anxiety towards the end of preschool and in kindergarten, improved a ton in first grade, then for second grade (this past year) we moved across the country and to a more challenging school. She did well except in math. She has an anxious personality in general...as do I (I've been on zoloft for many years with keeps my symptoms under control)...
I keep coming very close to taking her to a counselor, but I don't know if I should or not. Any advice? thanks!
