Dr. Christy Hobza Discusses Whether It’s OK to Let Kids Know You’re Overwhelmed

Dr. Christy Hobza Discusses Whether It’s OK to Let Kids Know You’re Overwhelmed


 

Dr. Christy Hobza, assistant professor at the American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | San Francisco Bay Area, was recently quoted as a parenting mental health expert in PGEveryday.com (Procter & Gamble online platform). Dr. Hobza discussed whether it’s okay to let kids know when you’re feeling overwhelmed—and the best way to go about doing it.

 

“Kids are really perceptive,” explains Dr. Hobza within the article. “If you think your child does not know what is going on with you, you are likely wrong. Many kids pick up on the cue that if you don’t want to talk about it, it is not okay to ask about.”

 

She recommends adjusting your language and truly speaking to kids as kids—not as you would to an adult friend or partner. “Tell your kids that you are feeling (angry, embarrassed, sad, anxious), and use your child’s own experiences of feeling upset to help them understand what you are feeling.”
