Does Your Child Argue with OCD? Why That Makes OCD Worse.
This video is for educational purposes only and is not intended to replace the guidance of a qualified professional.
Anxiety is like playing checkers, but OCD is like playing chess. You can try to rationalize with anxiety. You can problem-solve and try to talk yourself out of anxiety. It may not be easy, but with skills, you can make some headway.
But OCD is a different game entirely. OCD will easily outsmart you if you don’t know the rules of the game.
The first rule is don’t argue with OCD. OCD loves when you try to debate. In fact, that is what feeds OCD and grows it bigger. The more you try to “prove” OCD wrong, the stronger your issues will become.
In this week’s Youtube video I talk to kids and teens about why arguing with OCD will only serve to make their struggles worse, and what they can do instead.
