PSP 241 Calling out Anxiety or OCD When a Child is Angry

We talk about helping our kids realize when it is their anxiety or OCD ruling their behavior. But what happens when we get a loud bark when we do it? Is it a bad sign if our child gets angry? Should we stop?


In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast, I talk about when and how to call out your child’s anxiety or OCD and what to do with their reactions.


Also, if you want a deeper dive on how to address difficult behaviors caused by anxiety or OCD, take my Difficult Behavior Class that walks you through it!
