Teach Kids with OCD and Anxiety: Change the Channel in your brain (and get relief)!
Do you know why child OCD and anxiety can be so hard to get rid of typically? Because most kids subscribe to the OCD and anxiety channel in their brain. It is playing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. You can’t compete with that. A therapist can’t compete with that. Until your child learns how to change the channel in their brain or at least not subscribe to the OCD and anxiety network, little progress can be made.
So how do you get kids to change the channel? It is actually a hard skill for all of us, not just kids. But, it can be done! This week on Ask the Child Therapist Kids Edition I am talking to kids about how to pay attention to what is playing in their head and how to have some say in the programming.
If you are new to my YouTube channel for kids with anxiety and OCD check it out and subscribe! I come out with new episodes every Thursday to help kids not only survive but thrive with anxiety and OCD.
