Hi I think my son has ocd. He is obsessed with getting in to trouble at school and getting a detention. As this happend to him and has deverstated him. We have all sat and spoke with the teachers and they and me have tried to reasure him as much as possible but ut does not change how worried he is. He repeats the same questions, I give the same answers. He always cries as he hates feeling so scaired and sick, he dreads going to school. Life at home is so hard at the moment!! He is waiting to see the school nurse abd the doctor has refered him to Camhs. We are just waiting now. I just worry nothing we do will ever help him. Has anybody else have experience of this??

I don't know whether this would help. It seems more aimed at children - perhaps quite young ones - where OCD has been diagnosed. But I would imagine that knowing there are other children who have similar thoughts and feeling might make him a bit less distressed.
