Publisher's Summary

Show your anxieties, worries, and negative thoughts about who's in charge of it through this book, Parenting Teens with OCD.

Nobody wishes to be free of obsessive-compulsive disorder more than the person who suffers from it. You're not alone if you worry a lot because your kid has habits you can't seem to break, even if it may feel that way at times.

The Parenting Teens with OCD book includes all the relevant information to help your kids control negative thoughts, let go of anxious sensations, and halt difficult-to-stop behaviors to get back to doing what they enjoy.

Each chapter opens with a part that assists teenagers and their parents/caregivers focus on specific issues and developing skills for tuning out obsessions and resisting compulsions. The sections that follow demonstrate how to be helpful without interfering.

You may not know anybody else who suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) symptoms such as the urge to wash their hands continually, to check to be sure everything is okay, to count items, to put things in order, or even to repeat ideas recurrently.

When your kid is stressed or anxious, rituals like these can help them relax, but you already know that the respite is only short, and they'll have to repeat the process when they're feeling uneasy again. This loop might make them feel trapped, yet breaking it may seem impossible or even terrifying.

Parenting Teens with OCD includes simple cognitive behavioral therapy ideas to help you overcome your kids’ symptoms and live a life of freedom and flexibility. Your kid will be able to finally halt compulsive ideas in their tracks and prevent them from returning.

When your kid has OCD, your entire world might be turned inside out. This book will teach you how to:

  • Recognize when your kid’s thoughts are accurate and when they are overblown.
  • Recognize and avoid situations that cause your kid's symptoms to flare up.
  • Make friends and gain confidence in social situations by doing so.
  • Instead of relying on rituals, try relaxation techniques.

The book normalizes and supports the frequently hidden and unacknowledged thoughts, desires, and images and the accompanying rituals and compulsions that so many children and teens with OCD battle with.

The family of a teen with OCD will be ready to boss back the next time OCD shows up or show an undesirable visitor the door. So, buy now and begin your journey to a happier and more peaceful life.

A must-have book for parents

I recently completed listening to this book, and I wholeheartedly suggest it if you're trying to manage your child's anxiety. It provides an explanation for worry that really makes being empathetic much simpler. It explains anxiety in a way that has become so obvious and useful in my mind. It reframes things for me so beautifully, and I believe it will have a significant impact on how I interact with and support my child's fear.

Helped tremendously!

For parents like us who find themselves in the complex realm of OCD, this book is fantastic. This book explains what is occurring and what to do about it, which is a huge relief because we had no idea what was happening to our baby. Most significantly, this book gave us a sense of stability as parents, which benefited our kids. This book will assist you in developing a better-balanced knowledge of and response to your child's OCD if you and your partner are having divergent reactions.
