I don't know that my oldest necessarily has OCD but it seems like when we tell her something such as, for her to make sure she washes her hands to keep the germs away, she takes it to the extreme. I actually had to get hand sanitizer with aloe in it because she was doing it too much. She is definitely a worrier too. How can I get her to do stuff without taking it to the extreme end? Should I take her to see someone?

Based on my personal experience, it sounds like your daughter does have mild OCD. I'm not the type that washes their hands hundreds of times a day, but I do wash them too much, to the point where they've gotten really dry and bled a little. I would definitely recommend taking her to see a counselor. Counseling, and possibly medication, could help her deal with this condition.

I would be more concerned about the worrying than the hand washing. No one wants to see their kids stressed and worried. Maybe you could take her to a counselor that could teach her some relaxation techniques to help ease her mind.

I agree. Please take him to a counselor better yet introduce a new activity to him.
