Parenting a child with OCD: Kitty
Kitty and her husband Daniel co-founded the charity Nip in the Bud. In primary school their daughter often worried about harm coming to herself and others. She was finally diagnosed with OCD when she was 16. Their daughter is happily married, with a lovely child and a successful career, but the OCD continues to affect her life. If there had been more information about OCD in those days and it had been nipped in the bud when she was nine years old, the condition would not have become entrenched.
