Leaves of Three

About the book

It is important to realize that few children have severe obsessive-compulsive disorder, and many simply go through obsessive-compulsive-type phases. Children who have OCD have repetitive thoughts or worries that constantly bother them, or feel compelled to complete certain actions over and over—to the point that it controls their lives. Some might have these tendencies for a long time and some may grow out of them quickly. Many people who have OCD benefit from behavior therapy, as little Alicia did in this story. The road to recovery can be difficult for children and their parents, but the most important thing to remember is that there is hope. It is possible to live with OCD—and without fear.

 “For God did not give us a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.”
 2 Timothy 1:7
