Let’s talk tonight about Parenting Kids Who Are “Acting In”
Tonight’s show is about parenting kids who internalize their problems, such as pathologies like depression, anxiety, eating disorders, OCD, invisible or chronic illnesses, etc. Essentially those issues that are invisible on a day to day basis unless there is some kind of episode or crisis which calls attention to it.
This is a companion episode that is connected to Episode #39 on 2-7-18, “Parenting Special Needs Kids.” Dr. Mathis likes to use the term, “Acting In,” obviously meant as the opposite of people who “act out,” to refer to these sorts of people.
Tonight, we will talking about some of the challenges parents of kids who Act In face, and offer some insight and suggestions on how to cope with these kinds of situations in a healthy and constructive manner.
We'll start off the evening with some topic-relevant Classic Rock played by Dr. Mathis, followed by Classic Rock trivia, in "The Rock & Roll Shrink Recalls," followed by our topic discussion.
Please follow our bi-weekly, Wednesday evening shows, at 11 pm EST/EDT. We will have a new topic for you in two weeks! (Please note that the May 2nd Show may be postponed. Please watch our Facebook page for updates)
