Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a form of anxiety disorder, which can vary in severity from very mild to severe, and can take many different and novel forms. Some children are bothered by upsetting thoughts that they can't get rid of no matter how hard they try; other kids may find they feel compelled to wash or to check things, even though logically they know there is no need. When children are troubled by their obsessional problems they can experience very high levels of anxiety and distress, and they can find the problem takes up a lot of their time and attention. It can seem that the problem is taking over their life, and that there is little time for anything other than worrying, washing, checking or other obsessional behaviour. It can interfere with a child's ability to enjoy life, with their personal relationships and with almost every aspect of their life.
