One thought on “Is Parental Anxiety Contagious? Findings and Strategies

  • June 3, 2015 at 7:18 pm

    Great post with lots of helpful advice. When I look back on parenting my three children who are all in their twenties now, I know there were times when I let my anxiety show and it transferred to them. Of course, in comparison to my own parents and my upbringing, I was calm! It’s a learning process for all of us and we do the best we can. I do think genetics and other factors play a part as well……why does my son have OCD but my two daughters do not?
