Child Obsessions

Obsession can be defined as obsessive ideas and behaviors that occur in many people and reduce their quality of life. Obsessions in children bring along a more challenging process than adult obsessions. Babies and children who have not completed their mental development are not aware of the harm that will come to them when the continuity of their behavior and ideas becomes obsessive.

Although there is no age limit, it has been seen in many cases that obsessions seen in preschool children cause obsessive compulsive personality disorder in the future. In this regard, parents should be a good observer of their children's behavior and receive early diagnosis and psychologist and psychiatry support. Obsessive diseases seen in the children of conscious parents can be eliminated in a short time with the support of parents and psychologists.


Although it may seem like a simple event, when the obsession enters your child's life, it can affect both you and your child in a very comprehensive way. These negative effects cause your child to be in the same mood after a while and cause them to wear out. So what are child obsessions?

Obsessed kids:
wearing only one outfit
living with the same color
Make sure every item is the same color
Always using the same glass
Always riding in the same car
Always crossing the same roads
Meeting the same people all the time
listening to the same song
reading the same book

They want. This and similar situations are observed in many children, but it is very important for child psychology that families who experience the same situation in an ongoing process get help from experts in the field.


It is common for children to enjoy the same things and want to live their life with the same items. Although many families accept this situation at the first stage, there is a possibility of obsessive compulsive disorder in the future.

When obsessive-compulsive disorder is experienced, psychological aspects of the behaviors also appear. Children think that if they do not do many behaviors, they think that one of their families will be harmed, they are afraid that they will fail, and they perform many behaviors around these thoughts. There is no positive aspect of this situation that will cause the child to wear out and live in a constantly tense and unhappy mood after a while.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Behaviors:

Symmetry disease
suspicious moves
Don't be afraid to make mistakes
Don't think you'll get hurt
The need for constant cleaning
Continuous hand washing
Not shaking hands, not touching the doorknob
Avoiding physical contact
Repeating certain phrases over and over, saying the same prayer
Do not show the same reaction to every situation
Eating meals in a particular order

Such behaviors are among the behaviors that can be seen in obsessive individuals. However, a definite conclusion should not be reached in children who more or less experience these behaviors, and help from a specialist in the field should be sought. The psychological dimension of the inapplicable situation should be examined with the diagnoses you will make.


Families also have an effect on obsessive moods. Although it is a psychological case, the fact that families instill the same behaviors in their children, do not offer different options and make them feel that they have compulsory ways can cause obsessive disorders.

Even color sexism, which is seen as the first pressure on children in society, creates intense pressure on children. Although it is seen as a simple situation, the thought that men should always use the color blue and that their toys should be toys such as guns and cars causes children to live within certain limits and to behave in the same manner all the time. Behaviors that may cause such simple but serious psychological problems should be avoided. Conscious parents help raise healthy children.
