Moms of children with OCD

Children with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder can have a variety of difficulties, which can make life very stressful for other family members. There are challenges with teachers, friends of the child (or teen, or adult), & in severe cases, the lifestyle of the entire family is involved. This community can be a springboard for discussion & sharing of ideas in tough times.
