How to Help Our Kids Stop OCD Intrusive Thoughts (Tell Them Not to Do This!)
This video is for educational purposes only and is not intended to replace the guidance of a qualified professional.
Often when our kids have OCD intrusive thoughts the first thing they do is try to get those intrusive thoughts out of their head. They might do what OCD wants them to do. They might try to not think about it. They might debate, argue and fight OCD. Or they might try to come up with a practical solution to the problem OCD is presenting.
The issue with all of those OCD solutions is that they are all based on the validity of what OCD is saying. When they take the OCD intrusive thought seriously, they are already hooked into OCD.
In this Youtube video I talk to kids and teens about how to not get hooked into OCD’s lies from the start!
