“In many ways, this book is the resource I wish I had had.”

How do you make time for therapy while raising kids? How do you tell the difference between healthy parental instincts and OCD symptoms? How does OCD affect parenting, and what can be done about it?

After becoming a father of twins and receiving a diagnosis of OCD within the same three months, author Jason Adams found himself stuck in his search for answers to these questions, with little time and energy available for getting help.

Fast forward to present times, and Jason is living a happy, bustling life with his family. The stories, struggles and strategies that brought him to mental and emotional health became this, a uniquely relatable and practical support resource for anyone trying to work on their mental health and care for their family at the same time. Whether you’re managing OCD yourself, supporting a loved one, or just keen to know more, there truly is something in this book for everyone.
