The portrayal of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) in the media has led to numerous myths and misconceptions regarding what OCD truly is. While OCD is an anxiety-based disorder, you can start to see signs and symptoms of OCD in children from 3 years old. OCD is a shape shifter and trying to understand why children and teens have certain obsessions or compulsion is an exercise in futility.
