Please provide any encouragement or thoughts on helping a parent (me!) deal with a teenager with ocd. It’s awful to witness my daughter struggle. My heart breaks for her. She is 13 and suffers from anxiety and ocd and I don’t even know how to parent her when she’s having an episode? Do I stay quiet, do I get firm, do I empathize and talk her down, leave her alone? It’s so hard. She often gets angry and yells at me and tells me she hates me. Sigh.
