I have OCD and noticed my son displaying some signs of it. I bought the book to help him talk about it. The book helped him feel better and he opened up to me telling me how he has been feeling. My son is 7 years old. I think it is a very good book for those that have OCD.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book made my son feel SO much better - immediately after he read it! Knowing he wasn't 'crazy' as well as giving clear information on what he could do to control his OCD instead of it controlling him made all the difference in the world! Riding Up and Down the Hill is exactly what we did to help in the exposure therapy and ritual prevention and he was able to 'hold on' until we reached the top of the hill and then he was so happy to ride down the other side. In turn, his OCD 'shrank'. He was so proud of himself and so was I! I also highly recommend the other book Dr. Wagner wrote entitled 'What to Do When Your Child Has OCD'. It's a must for parents!! Thank you Dr. Wagner!!! You are wonderful and have made such an impact on my son, his OCD and our family!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

My daughter, who's 7, read this book almost entirely independently. She has had OCD for years, but had never encountered other children who have the disorder. To read about Casey and other kids who are dealing with this, plus seeing that there is a way to overcome it, was so enlightening for her. Dr. Wagner breaks everything down so well so that a child can understand this very confusing disorder.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
