Seeing your child be surrounded by people who just don’t get OCD. Siblings who tease their brother or sister for their “strange” behavior. Partners who tell your child to “just stop!” Relatives who think they are being helpful when they tell you “they’ll grow out of it.” And teachers who don’t understand how your child can have OCD when they just don’t see it. Explaining OCD to people who just don’t get it can be daunting.

That is not rocket science to you. But what you really want to know is how to deal with OCD – especially in a child this young.<br /> <br /> Should you wait and see if your daughter out grows this behavior? That’s what everyone else tells you to do. Should you listen? Or should you trust your mama gut and teach your child how to deal with OCD now, when she is really young. You have seen what OCD can do in your family. You know how devastating it can be. It is a slow drip that can eventually flood your life and your happiness. That’s not what you want for your child. But what are you supposed to do? Everything you read online is for older children with OCD, but what about young kids. Kids like yours, who are already struggling and they can barely spell their name?<br /> <br /> There are things you can do. You don’t have to be a victim to OCD until your child’s life is full of obsessions and compulsions. You can get out your armor now and start the OCD battle.

You’ve long ago ignored the well-intentioned friends and family who told you her behaviors were “typical.” There was nothing typical about it. You spend most of your morning sitting where she wants you to sit, following her very specific demands. Demands that if not followed to the letter, will result in a catastrophic meltdown that can go on for hours. You are pretty sure your child is showing early signs of OCD. That is not rocket science to you. But what you really want to know is how to deal with OCD – especially in a child this young.<br /> <br /> Should you wait and see if your daughter out grows this behavior? That’s what everyone else tells you to do. Should you listen? Or should you trust your mama gut and teach your child how to deal with OCD now, when she is really young. You have seen what OCD can do in your family. You know how devastating it can be. It is a slow drip that can eventually flood your life and your happiness. That’s not what you want for your child. But what are you supposed to do? Everything you read online is for older children with OCD, but what about young kids. Kids like yours, who are already struggling and they can barely spell their name?<br /> <br /> There are things you can do. You don’t have to be a victim to OCD until your child’s life is full of obsessions and compulsions. You can get out your armor now and start the OCD battle.

Don’t wait until your child is older. Anxiety in young children should be dealt with sooner than later. Let me tell you how. Your child clings to you for dear life when anyone even glances her way.

But you don’t do your child any favors by trying to turn a blind eye and act like your gut isn’t trying to tell you something. Denial isn’t helpful. But anxiety in young children can be addressed.

You want to throw the parenting rule book at him. You want to strip him of every privilege and shut this nasty party down. But this isn’t your first rodeo. You’ve been here many times before and you know how it goes. This isn’t your ordinary, run of the mill poor behavior. These aren’t your typical meltdowns. These meltdowns are born from a build up of anxiety. A build up a stress. A build up of such strong emotion there should have been an emergency alert before it hit your home.


So how are you supposed to deal with this tsunami? This tornado of chaos wreaking havoc in your home?


I have my own cyclone at home, although we’ve been able to downgrade him to a tropical storm. I have also helped many parents in my practice learn how to spot and prepare for storms just like the one described. Get on your raincoat and galoshes and let’s talk about riding the storm.

Summary of Podcast:
In this episode you will learn how to differentiate between typical behavior and meltdowns and anxiety-induced behavior. You will also learn how to parent this behavior differently than you would if it was not anxiety-induced.
 
In this episode you will learn:
How child anxiety and OCD can cause poor behavior and meltdowns.

The best way to address this behavior.

How to reduce poor behavior and meltdowns caused by anxiety and/or OCD.
