173939 tn?1333221450 I agree with jdtm's comment. All of have an individual learning style and many of us are "hands on learners". There is a good deal of information on the internet about this and you should check with your local library for books on this topic. To start, you may wish to do a google search "children's learning styles". In additon to this, we are all hardwired with our own individual temperment. The environment we grow up in certainly can and does shape our temperments.

184674 tn?1360864093 Herein lies the problem we're having with his homework anxiety. If he has math homework or some kind of hands-on project, we're all good. Even reading isn't too big of a deal most days. But writing, spelling, and phonics? Heaven help us all. Meltdowns are starting to get pretty regular--about as regular as they were in kindergarten before I found out how severe his vision issues were. He doesn't want to write his paragraphs because he doesn't want to constantly correct his phonetic errors.
Avatar f tn Absolutely! When I look back at my childhood I see the same behavior patterns that eventually led me to a pdoc to find out what was wrong with me. Back then I did not know why I acted like I did and my condition was untreated.

752574 tn?1265477208 OCD is an anxiety disorder. Frankly, your description of your daughter does make me wonder if anxiety might be the issue - not necessarily OCD but one of the other anxiety issues.. I mighht suggest you google the phrase "anxiety and children" or "anxiety and teenagers" or "anxiety and perfectionism in children" to see if any of the descriptions remind you of your daughter. If so, there should be some advice re this issue from your reading.
Avatar n tn but when a person resists carrying out a compulsion, anxiety is increased. Obsessive-compulsive disorder is disabling and often time consuming and interfere significantly with people's normal routine, occupational functioning, usual activities, or relationships with friends and family members. Well-controlled studies that medication and behavior therapy or a combination of both is effective in significantly reducing the symptoms of OCD.
4059843 tn?1541422896 I have had so many people tell me that i am going to get there, that i am going to get over this perfectionism thing, and that i am going to have a successful future.... I believe them but at the same time i dont believe i will ever get out of this. I have even thought of leaving school in year 9! I mean that is sort of crazy, but i am so bad that i go to sleep every night at 12, and by doing homework my latest was 3:30am. i cant do it anymore, i feel stupid and know i am.
Avatar f tn Sorry you are having a time of it with panic just now. When a person suffers from an anxiety disorder, it is important to accept and learn to deal with it. My psychiatrist told me several times to 'go slow', or 'go with the flow'...things like that. It isn't about time so much as it is about our anxious thoughts. Try to leave early for scheduled events. When I worked I always left before it was necessary, and tried to enjoy the drive, instead of stressing about traffic.
Avatar f tn Yeah thanks man I really appreciate you replying, and just to clarify I haven't been diagnosed with anxiety. I have been diagnosed with OCD though. I have a problem with perfectionism with my OCD, along with excessive hand washing and a complicated "germ" phobia. I sometimes have to have everything absolutely perfect in my areas and if they aren't I start to freak out. Also it just happens randomly sometimes too, like it can take tens of minutes just adjusting one thing in my room.
Avatar m tn My son has sensory integration disorder. We've worked on it for a long time so to most, his issues aren't even noticeable. (yeah). He can have some quirky things that he does too. He and I talk about things rather openly. We work on what is not great in terms of friends. The good news is that so far, no kids seem to be noticing or making fun of her for this or excluding her. Sadly, that stuff does happen.
Avatar n tn A couple of things run through my mind. First, with the idea of pressure and perfectionism. Perfectionism is one of the leading causes of people being unhappy. No one is perfect and if that is one's standard, they never feel good enough which is sad. One thing you can do is think about how you handle things yourself. Are you a perfectionist? Or your spouse? What we can do is talk about our own failures to our kids.
Avatar n tn Because things can be harder for him but he is also quite intelligent, he also struggles with perfectionism. Perfectionism is a rough way to go for kids (and adults---- many depressed adults have perfectionism as a side issue). Being perfect is impossible and a standard that sets one up for failure their whole life and in everything. So, try to help her with it, Here are some age appropriate things to do with an 8 year old.
Avatar m tn Would all this fall under anxiety, ocd, or perfectionism??? I would say for me..probably mostly perfectionsim..i like things to be organized,except for the last 3 months...i guess i am taking a break on all of it!!!...because of lack of energy and motivation.
142354 tn?1228250348 I take wellbutrin and have had no depression while on tx, but I did experience a one day bout of anxiety that almost flipped my lid. I was ready to go to the ER. I waited till the next day and saw my doc, by then it passed. Good luck, best wishes and continued success!!! Keep killin' those little critters!!!
Avatar n tn no one can say for certain why one person who is exposed to certain stressors (abuse, perfectionism, depression) will develop an eating disorder and another exposed to the same thigns will not. Wish we knew. We would be closer to a cure. In the mean time it is so important to embrace feminity and the natural curves that go along with it.
Avatar f tn From a lay perspective I expect the connection between the two could be stress and anxiety related. Perhaps relaxation exercises would be helpful? Have you spoken to your dentist about the TMJ? The expert on the dental health expert forum here is very good and he has had a previous interest in psychology. It could be worth posting there as well. When we feel vulnerable we also tend to percieve pain as being more intense. That doesn't really help when we already feel stressed and tense.

1036540 tn?1252767731 This original posting does not sound like OCD or any anxiety disorder. Many anxiety issues do have perfectionism as one of the behaviours but the more common "anxiety" behaviours are not present in your description. Hope this helps ...
Avatar m tn We took her first to therpay and then to a psychologist at Children's. She was diagnosed with OCD, high anxiety, innate perfectionism and sensory integration disorder. She is in fourth grade now, on medication and doing wonderfully. She have found the happy, social girl who was smothered by that mess of anxiety. Often, these behaviors don't present until they start school and have to spend the whole day trying to fit in and meet expectations. An evaluation couldn't hurt.
1574975 tn?1317075690 A loss, an extended period of high stress, a major life change. This little gene then comes to life. And anxiety/depression/any other mental disorder is set in motion. People who do not have the defective gene tend to self-recover from crisis, people who do have the defective gene have a harder time because there is something wrong in our very biological make-up that prevents us from becoming well as fast as others.
Avatar n tn While it fairly common sometime during the pre-school years to show such perfectionism and intolerance of obstructions, the degree to which this occurs with your niece is not within the normal spectrum. These may be early signs of an anxiety disorder, and at the very least indicate a problem with management of frustration.

Avatar m tn My twin brother has ocd also. In my teenage years, I developed social anxiety disorder and cleanliness phobias. I no longer have those. My condition morphs/changes. My main symptoms are perfectionism, neatness and list making. I will spend hours making lists. Everything needs to be planned so that I don't forget anything and things are done "right". I don't really have germ phobias anymore. I am constantly thinking/planning and analyzing. My brain NEVER stops!!!
