Helping Kids Understand the Difference Between Obsessions and Compulsions

The biggest gift we can give our kids with OCD is knowledge. The more they understand how OCD works, the more effective they’ll be at crushing it. One of the biggest areas of confusion is the difference between obsessions and compulsions and why it matters.

In this episode I talk about how to help kids understand the difference between obsessions and compulsions in OCD.

In this week’s Youtube video, I explain to kids and teens the difference between obsessions and compulsions and how to use that understanding to be more effective when dealing with OCD.

Stay tuned for a podcast episode for parents on the same topic! Adults need education on this too.
