What is the spectrum of anxiety for children and when should a parent seek help? What causes it and are we enabling our children when we mean to help? Why are children who exhibit “lazy” habits might be terribly mislabeled? And how can we help (rather than hinder) when our children have OCD?
Join us for an important discussion with Dr. Laura Stutman a child anxiety reduction expert from CARE-LA who will answer our questions and help us parent our anxious kids to better serve them.
Dr. Lauren Stutman founded CARE-LA based on her passion to help children and adolescents with anxiety.
Dr. Stutman has extensive knowledge and her own personal experience struggling with and overcoming severe childhood anxiety, perfectionism and OCD. It is her belief that any person can transform their unique struggles into their most powerful asset.
