PSP 365: Why Does My Child’s Anxiety or OCD Show Up More For ME?!

One of the biggest questions I get from parents is, “Why does my child’s anxiety or OCD show up more for me?” It can be a source of contention when one parent sees all the struggles and the other parent sees nothing. It can cause people to finger point and waste unnecessary energy playing the blame game. The truth is…that is the norm.  In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I’ll explore why kids tend to show their anxiety or OCD more to one parent than to anyone else and what we can do about it. 🌸 Get in-depth support giving your child with anxiety or OCD skills with my online courses at AT Parenting Survival School. *** This podcast episode is sponsored by NOCD.

PSP 364: How Our Parenting Styles Impact the Anxiety & OCD Journey

Our parenting style directly impacts how we approach our child’s anxiety or OCD. How do you feel about setting boundaries? What emotions do you feel when your child is in distress? How do you feel when you pull back your accommodations around anxiety or OCD? Our parenting style plays a role in these questions.  Your parenting style wasn’t developed out of thin air. We are a mix of our childhood experiences, our feelings around how we were parented and our hopes for our own kids. In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I help you take a deeper dive into your parenting style, where it came from and how it plays a role in your child’s anxiety or OCD journey. 🌸 Get in home support with my new book, Crushing OCD Workbook for Kids *** This podcast episode is sponsored by NOCD.

PSP 363: The Importance of Finding the Right Therapy for OCD | One Family’s Journey

The wrong therapist can wreak havoc on a children’s OCD. That is why it is so important for parents to understand what are evidenced-based approaches specifically for OCD. It is also key to have the skills to decipher a qualified therapist from a non-qualified therapist. When Eve started having intrusive thoughts, she privately went to google to figure out what was going on. Fortunately for Eve she stumbled upon the right sites that helped her understand her thoughts were OCD. Many families aren’t so lucky, especially when it involves OCD themes like sexual orientation or harm to self or others.Even though Eve properly identified her struggles as OCD, it still took several therapists to find a qualified one that would help her make progress. Her father wasn’t so lucky. He had the same OCD themes in college and had little success from a general therapist, never knowing it was OCD until his daughter had the same theme.In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk to Eve and her father Jon, as they share their struggles, their journey to find the right therapist and their bond through it all. 🌸 Want in-depth, ongoing support?

PSP 362: The Use of Storytelling in Anxiety and OCD

It can be hard to help kids navigate anxiety and OCD. Sometimes adding some creative ways to help validate, normalize and build skills to handle anxiety or OCD can be gold! One of my favorite ways to do that is through storytelling.Storytelling is a powerful tool. It can help kids understand how anxiety and OCD work. It can help talk about anxiety or OCD without discussing it directly. It can be a creative outlet to process emotions around anxiety and OCD. It can even be used to problem solve and teach tools on how to crush anxiety and OCD.In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I’ll discuss the many helpful uses to add the creative approach of storytelling to help kids with anxiety or OCD.In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I’ll discuss the many helpful uses to add the creative approach of storytelling to help kids with anxiety or OCD.🌸 Join my FREE parent series going on right now!

PSP 361: A Parenting Journey Raising a Child with Emetophobia

Raising a child with Emetophobia, the fear of throw up, can be an isolating experience. It brings with it all sorts of fears. What if they can’t overcome their struggles? What if they can’t go to school? What if they stop eating entirely? It is important that parents don’t feel alone on this journey. That is why I was so thrilled when Lauren, a parent in my AT Parenting Community, reached out and asked to be on my podcast. She was so excited about seeing her daughter’s progress that she wanted to share her story with others. In this week’s episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast, I sat down with Lauren as we both discussed our experiences as moms to kids with Emetophobia. We explore what worked, what didn’t and how we try to manage our own anxiety around it all.

PSP 360: Managing Our Anxiety When Our Child is Panicking

Your child is paralyzed with fear. They are nauseous. They are faint. They are immobilized. It is hard to watch as a parent.

PSP 358: Psychologist Lori Long Talks About Life with Social Anxiety

One of the hardest parts about social anxiety is the feeling you are the only one with these struggles. It actually feeds into the disorder quite well. It is a story that many of us with social anxiety tell ourselves.No one struggles like you do.No one thinks the way you do.No one would understand.When I had Lori and her colleagues, Katie and Mallory, from The Childhood Collective on my podcast, I was surprised when Lori said she had social anxiety. I wanted to hear more and asked her if she’d be willing to come on the show to discuss it. Luckily she agreed!In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I sat down with Lori to hear about her social anxiety struggles, how it impacted her career and how treatment turned everything around.If you want to learn more about social anxiety follow me on Instagram @socialanxietyreality. To tap into the work of Lori, Katie and Mallory go to The Childhood Collective.🌸 Want more in-depth support with social anxiety?

PSP 357: How to Boost Your Child’s Self-Esteem with Jesse LeBeau

Self-esteem and self-confidence can play a big role in our child’s journey with anxiety and OCD. When our anxious kids struggle they can feel overwhelmed with emotions of shame and isolation. They might beat themselves up for being different or for having difficulties. Self-esteem can also play an integral role in how our kids approach anxiety or OCD. Do they have an I can’t attitude or do they feel confident that they can use skills to overcome anxiety and OCD?Self-esteem work is always a crucial supplement to anxiety and OCD treatment. That is why I invited Jesse LeBeau, one of today’s most highly sought-after youth motivational speakers, to join us on the AT Parenting Survival Podcast.

PSP 356: Are You a Punching Bag for Your Child’s Anxiety and OCD Overwhelm?

As parents we are often in the line of fire when it comes to our child’s overwhelm. When dealing with anxiety or OCD we can feel like we are our child’s punching bag. The truth is, physiologically our kids are often looking for a push-pull conversation. It is easier to see you as enemy #1 rather than facing anxiety and OCD head on.

PSP 348: Does Your Child’s Anxiety or OCD Trigger Your Childhood Wounds?

Dealing with our child’s anxiety or OCD is taxing enough, but sometimes there is another layer of stress. Often our child’s struggles can trigger something deep within us. A childhood wound, a flashback, a remnant of something that has remained dormant within us.When these old wounds are triggered we might have an exaggerated response to our child’s struggles or behaviors. Our past and present might get blurred and anger or fear can bubble up to the surface.In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I explore how to spot our childhood wounds and how to separate our past from our present.🌸 Join my FREE self-care series starting this week!

It is easy to lose yourself while trying to parent a child with anxiety or OCD. In fact, it can be hard not to. We might have ongoing thoughts about how to help our child.

PSP 345: Balancing Act of Pulling Back Anxiety & OCD Accommodations

When our child has anxiety or OCD, we are often providing some accommodations that inadvertently grow the problem. As we learn about anxiety and OCD, we also learn about the importance of pulling back those accommodations. This is not a black and white process. It takes time, it takes judgment and it takes discernment in the moment.In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk about accommodations, how they grow anxiety and OCD and how to systematically pull back accommodations over time, while having discernment for what your child can handle.

PSP 342: A Sisters Journey Through OCD to a Life of Purpose

Emily and Lindsay both struggled with OCD as kids. Even though they were sisters, OCD showed up in very different ways for each of them.  It wasn’t until Emily was in college that she realized that her anxiety was really OCD in disguise. Lindsay was able to support her sister and get her connected to the help she needed.  When the sisters found themselves back at home during COVID, a desire to help themselves quickly turned into an idea to help others as well. Emily wanted something to anchor herself. She wanted a bracelet to remind her of the skills she was using in therapy. With the idea that others would want this too, the sisters launched a company called Presently, offering jewelry with a deeper message.  Check out their store, Presently. 🌸 Join me for a live Zoom Workshop:  Learn How to Discover Your Child’s Core Fears Around Anxiety and/or OCD.

PSP 341: Helping Kids with Disgust OCD themes

There are a few OCD themes that can look very different than the rest. Just right OCD and Disgust OCD themes are two of them. Parents and therapists might struggle to find the “core fear” around these themes. That is because disgust and just right themes have to do with a fear of overwhelm around a feeling. In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk about how disgust OCD themes can show up and some alternative views being shared about how to treat disgust OCD differently than other themes.

PSP 340: The Balance Between Rescuing and Empowering Our Kids

Most of us want to raise healthy, resilient, empowered adults, but how do we get there? Our kids don’t magically turn independent and empowered once they pass the threshold of adulthood. The magic is in finding the sweet spot between rescuing and empowering our kids on  a daily basis. Even if we hit that sweet spot half the time, we’ll be building those skills to help our kids feel empowered. In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I explore the continuum of rescuing to tough love parenting. I discuss how to move from doing it for our kids, to coaching, to sitting on the sidelines cheerleading.  🌸 Want more in-depth support? Sign up and join the AT Parenting Community!

PSP 339: Understanding the Relationship of PANDAS/PANS and OCD

No one knows for certain what causes OCD. We know what areas of the brain are implicated in OCD, but the rest seems up for discussion. We need more research to understand this disorder. Some kids have OCD symptoms due to an umbrella of issues under PANDAS/PANS. Research is showing that inflammation in the brain can impact mental health and cause neuropsychiatric symptoms, including OCD. Many kids have autoimmune issues, infections such as strep or have had environmental exposure to things like mold or Lyme that can cause an inflammatory response.  In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I invited Jessica Gavin, a PANDAS/PANS advocate and mom to three kids with PANDAS/PANS, to explore the world of PANDAS/PANS with me.

PSP 335: Creating Natural Exposures to Crush Anxiety and OCD

Ultimately we want our kids to live a life where they walk towards their anxiety or OCD fears and discomfort. The more they build those anxiety and OCD skills, the more resilient they will become. Natural exposures can help on two fronts. If your child is not ready to commit to formal ERP (Exposure Response Prevention), the main approach in OCD treatment, doing natural exposures can be a great first step. Second, we want our kids to develop an organic, authentic way of dealing with anxiety or OCD. When they learn how to create natural exposures when faced with triggers, they learn how to live their life while keeping anxiety or OCD at bay.

PSP 329: What to Do When Your Child with OCD or Anxiety Won’t Discuss it

Often parents give up before they even start because their child with OCD or anxiety refuses to talk. It is easy to think there is nothing you can do if you can’t get your child to discuss their anxiety or OCD. But there is always a place to start, always.  Kids refuse to talk about anxiety or OCD for various issues. Here are some common ones: -They have a hard time expressing their emotions in general-They are embarrassed about having anxiety or OCD-They think you’ll force them to work on their issues-They don’t fully trust you or your reactions -They don’t want to burden you or increase your anxiety-They are worried about what you’ll think-They have a stereotypical view of these issues which causes shame So where to start? The first step is to figure out why the shutdown is occurring. Does your child struggle communicating with you in general? Do they have a hard time expressing difficult situations? Or is this specific to just anxiety or OCD struggles? In this week’s episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast we discuss reasons why kids refuse to talk about anxiety or OCD and what to do to help them move forward.

PSP 327: Reducing Inflammation to Improve Mental Health

We are hearing more and more about how inflammation is implicated in many mental health issues including anxiety and OCD. But what does that mean? Are there ways we can see if our child is struggling with inflammation? Are there things we can change in their diet or lifestyle that will reduce inflammation? I don’t know those answers, but I do know someone who does! That is why I invited Dr. Ann Kulze, a renowned physician and founder of the Healthy Living School to come and talk to us.  Dr. Ann has been featured on the Dr. Oz show, Oprah and Friends Radio, Time, and WebMD sharing her expertise in this area. 🌸 To get 30% off Dr. Ann’s course, How to Eat to Reduce Inflammation, click here. Note from the show: On the podcast Dr. Ann recommended testing “hsCRP” and “Sed rate”. However, she’s unsure if they have standards for doing the hsCRP in kids and imagines pediatricians would likely say they don’t run hsCRP. Sed rates are not super sensitive but can give some indication of inflammation. A sed rate will only be positive in context of higher levels of inflammation as occurs in context of healing or self-defense. 🌸 Want to join the AT Parenting Community?

PSP 325: OCD Recovery and Maintenance with Shaun Flores

Shaun Flores was only a couple of years into his own struggle with OCD when he became an OCD advocate. He quickly became a stronger messenger of hope through his OCD awareness work.  Recently I had Shaun back on the AT Parenting Survival podcast to discuss how his OCD recovery is going, what he does to maintain progress and how the perception of recovery can be part of a bigger issue.  As Shaun discussed his recovery it became apparent how OCD decimated his financial stability, derailed his career path and left him in debt. Despite those issues, Shaun continued to be a shining light for others.  I have created a Go Fund Me account to show Shaun how much the OCD community appreciates him and all the work he has done. The funds will help Shaun find that stable grounding, cover expenses related to his upcoming knee surgery and help him claw out of the financial hole OCD put him in.  🌸 Any amount will show Shaun he is valued.
