Polly's Magic Games : A Child's View of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder by Constance H. Foster, Edwin A. Chase "As soon as my 10 year old daughter was diagnosed with OCD, we bought this book. I found it very helpful. It made her realize that there are other children just like her. I also let friends and family members read it. It gave them an easy to understand look at what life with OCD is like. I would reccomend this book to anyone who has a child in their life with OCD."
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder : Help for Chikldren and Adolescents (Patient-Centered Guides) by Mitzi Waltz, James M. Claiborn " This is the only book I've found that covers everything about OCD in kids, including dealing with it in the family and at school. The parts on therapy and medications are very thorough, but it goes way past just the medical stuff. I have read some of the books written for doctors but this is down to earth and written for PARENTS--makes it easy to understand the choices you have to help your child."
Freeing Your Child from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder : A
Powerful, Practical Program for Parents of Children and
Adolescents by Tamar E. Chansky
Ph.D. "Tamar Chansky really captures the essence of OCD from the
patient's point of view. I have lived with OCD since my early teens
and have read every book I can find on the subject. I have to say
that no other author has so accurately captured the suffering,
control, oppressive guilt and desire to break free that the OCD
sufferer feels every day. My child has also shown signs of the
disorder and fortunately I was able to get her treatment as OCD
first reared it's ugly head due to my own experience with the
disorder. Dr. Chansky's book is right on. Her recommendations and
techniques provide an effective blueprint for parents to follow in
saving their children from this insidious robber of normalcy and in
helping the family survive the upheaval that accompanies

their freedom. This book gives hope to the family members and offers
clear, concise ways to promote healing while living with OCD.
