How do you define success when it comes to getting anxiety or OCD under control? What does “recovery” look like to you? What does it look like to your child? How we view success and how we convey it to our kids is critical. In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast, I explore what a healthy view of “success” looks like and how to communicate that effectively to our kids.
Our child’s anxiety or OCD doesn’t live in a bubble. Our kids are surrounded by people who are there to support them. But do they allow others to help them? Do they even know how to ask for help? Often they don’t communicate what they need and we are left guessing. In this week’s Youtube video, I talk to kids and teens about why it is important to let others know exactly how they can help with their anxiety or OCD.
OCD and anxiety are best friends and often like to hang out together. But even though they are comorbid conditions, there are some big differences in how you should approach them. In this week’s Youtube video, I talk to kids and teens about the differences between anxiety and OCD and why it is important to approach each in a different way.
