Helping Kids Who are Afraid to Leave the House Due to Anxiety or OCD

Does your child’s anxiety or OCD make them afraid to leave the house? Do they stay at home to avoid being triggered? 

In this week’s YouTube video I talk to kids about the fear of leaving the house due to their anxiety and OCD and how they can work through these struggles.

In this week’s YouTube video I talk to kids and teens about how to handle the impulse to avoid leaving the house due to their fears and what to do instead.
