Jackson has a bit of OCD. Everyone is always joking that my house must be spotless because he is such a little neat freak. I try to use this to my advantage. For instance, if I am already sitting in the floor with a new diaper/clothes for him and he refuses to come get his diaper changed, I have figured out that instead of getting up and chasing him around the house, all I have to do is throw his (clean) diaper on the floor near him. He will pick it up and bring it to me and when he gets near enough all I have to do it grab him!
I'm also trying to get Jackson to respond to more commands. I have to physically take his hands and walk him through whatever I am trying to teach him, and once it is taught it must ALWAYS be that way (in his mind). So even if he doesn't want to do it, he will if I make a mess of it. For instance, I taught him to take his leftover bread crusts/ pancake scraps to the dog's bowl. Some days he decides he doesn't want to do it, so I just throw the scraps on the kitchen floor because I know his OCD will win out and he will go pick them up and put them back where they belong.
Last night after dinner I was cleaning. Jason and Jackson were in the kitchen with me, so I tried to give Jackson his banana peel and told him to put it in the trash. He just ignored me, so I threw the banana peel on the floor and Jackson immediately scooped it up and took it to the trash. After a few minutes we had this conversation....
Jason: "Huh. You use that same tactic on me, don't you?"
Me (hiding my face a little bit): "I have no idea what you're talking about."
Jason: "Yeah right. You just don't bother to dust or vacuum because you know I can't stand to look at it and eventually I'll do those things for you."
