Helping Kids with OCD Know They are Not Alone

This episode is for educational purposes only and is not intended to replace the guidance of a qualified professional.

Having OCD can be a lonely experience. Kids can feel like there is no one else out there who gets their struggles. 

In this podcast, I talk about why it’s SO important to help kids with OCD not feel alone - and how we can go about doing that!

And really, who can blame them? 

The media (and even worse social media) often spend their time talking about OCD like it’s a meme or an adjective.

But feeling alone does more than impact the mood and self-esteem. It can stand in the way of progress and impact our child’s long-term success.

In this week’s episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast, I talk about why it’s SO important to help kids with OCD not feel alone – and how we can go about doing that!
