Check out the latest family friendly show about a middle schooler with social anxiety and his emotional support animal Dude. While it doesn’t accurately depict anxiety for many kids, it does take out some of the stigmatization and can create some empathy for kids who don’t experience social anxiety. The program does a great job of depicting how anxiety impacts the entire family and the day to day of life going to school. While I am only 3 episodes in and don’t love shows with talking animals and humor I find to be luke warm, the show is growing on me. Watching a kid make new friends, a family adjust to their kid returning to school, and a boy exposing himself to his fears and grow tolerance to anxiety is warming my heart. And to see my own kids laugh and enjoy the program let’s me know this is a good show for the 9-12 age group. Looking forward to checking out more!
