4.5 stars. There is so much good information here. I especially appreciated the chapters on how both SSRIs and ERP (exposure response prevention) improve OCD symptoms, but in different ways. I had never read anything that detailed before. I also LOVED the chapter on treating OCD as an illness, something the child cannot help. I would never get angry with a child for having an asthma attack, so I should never get angry with a child for having an OCD attack. My favorite sentence from the whole boo ...more

This is a really great program that can remind people w/ OCD that they are not alone, and give them tools / steps to resist and conquer OCD.

This book / program is geared toward OCD in children / teenagers.

Invaluable resource for every family & individual suffering from OCD. Great for the therapist, too! As the title indicates, the audience is families/individuals who are pre-school or school-age. Very helpful analogies and scientific normalizing of this condition. (Read along with Grayson's Freedom from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder) ...more

I read this a couple of years ago to help my daughter who was struggling with minor OCD. While I didn't follow through the entire program with her, what I did read was immensely helpful in teaching her skills and ways to manage her own OCD tendencies. She barely struggles with them anymore, so I owe a lot to this little book! Highly recommended if you or your children experience OCD in any form! ...more

Amazing helpful audiobook on Amazon. It comes with a workbook to help the child and the parents. It was absolutely great to read it and see that as part of the family we can help our little ones. I also understood what to say and do.

Excellent resource for families dealing with OCD. I actually only read to page 158 because the second half of the book is a workbook for the individual dealing with OCD and I was slogging through it and gave up on finishing.
