Balancing Act of Pulling Back Anxiety & OCD Accommodations
This episode is for educational purposes only and is not intended to replace the guidance of a qualified professional.
When our child has anxiety or OCD, we are often providing some accommodations that inadvertently grow the problem. As we learn about anxiety and OCD, we also learn about the importance of pulling back those accommodations. This is not a black and white process. It takes time, it takes judgment and it takes discernment in the moment.
In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk about accommodations, how they grow anxiety and OCD and how to systematically pull back accommodations over time, while having discernment for what your child can handle.
