Learning How to Take Care of Yourself in the Midst of Raising a Child with Anxiety or OCD with Hilary Rank

When you are raising a child with anxiety or OCD life is more hectic and overwhelming.

Your child is scared in the middle of the night.

You stay up, listening to bad dreams.
You make the therapy appointments.
You read all the books.
You wipe tears.
You listen to fears.

You quietly worry yourself.

You are the caretaker. You are the rock to your child’s storm. But what about you?

When you are raising a child with anxiety or OCD self-care is often not even thought about. Learn why that doesn’t help either of you.

What do you do for yourself?

Often taking care of ourselves is on the bottom of our to-do list. Okay, it probably isn’t even on that list! And yet – without recharging ourselves, we can’t fully be there for our children.

In this episode of The AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk to Hilary Rank, a certified Health Coach and Personal Trainer, all about why self-care is important and how it may not be what we think!
