The Wait-and-See Approach to Anxiety or OCD

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

How often do we hear from family, friends, and even doctors that we should “wait and see” if it gets worse. We should wait and see if the anxiety or OCD grows bigger. We should wait and see if anxiety or OCD becomes debilitating. We should wait and see if it is truly an issue.

Learn why the wait-and-see approach for childhood anxiety or OCD isn’t the smartest move.

It is like watching a tornado slowly approach your home and waiting to see if you really need to go seek shelter.

When we proactively help our kids with any anxiety or OCD issue we help them long term. The skills our children learn for anxiety or OCD also help them with life in general.

In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk about why the wait-and-see approach for anxiety or OCD isn’t only bad advice, it can be detrimental to your child’s long-term success.
