How to Handle When You and Your Child Both have Anxiety or OCD

Anxiety and OCD are both highly genetic, so it’s not surprising that many parents find themselves raising kids with similar issues. Often though, many of us back burner our own help to focus on our children’s needs.

In order to help our kids with anxiety or OCD, we have to help ourselves. In this episode we talk about how helping you, will help your child.

But what if focusing on your needs also helps your child’s struggles?

In this episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk to Nathan Peterson, an anxiety and OCD therapist, a YouTuber and a course creator

We talk about how our children’s issues can overlap with our own, and what to do about it.
