How to Handle the Stress of Raising a Child with Anxiety or OCD

Raising a child with anxiety or OCD should come with a warning label, “Warning: May be hazardous to your health.” Being a rock to a child that is often flailing in the sea of chaos, can be draining to even the best of us. It can wear you down, destroy your sleep and impact your mood stability.

If you are raising a child with anxiety or OCD, how you handle stress is not only important for you, but it is important for your child as well.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are ways that we can maintain our health and mental stability, while still helping a less than stable child.

In this episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk about the quicksand many of us find ourselves in and some simple ways you can claw yourself out of it.
