PSP 368: Why OCD Can Get Worse with the Wrong Therapist

When you bring your child to a cardiologist, you expect they know all the evidence based treatment interventions to help your child. When you bring them to an endocrinologist you assume they are an expert in all things endocrinology.But sadly you cannot assume the same when seeing a mental health therapist. The truth is not all therapists are properly trained and informed on how to assess, diagnose and treat OCD.That means we, as parents, have to have enough knowledge to spot a helpful versus a harmful therapist. We have to know what evidenced based approaches work and why. We have to ask the right questions to know that we are in the right place.🌸 Get in-depth support to help your child with OCD in my online courses at AT Parenting Survival School.***This podcast episode is sponsored by NOCD.

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!

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.

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. In this episode we’ll explore what tools we can offer our kids to help boost self-esteem and confidence.🎉 My new book, Crushing OCD Workbook for Kids was just released.

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.Read Richard Gallagher’s article on disgust OCD in this IOCDF article.🌸 Join me for a live Zoom Workshop:  Learn How to Discover Your Child’s Core Fears Around Anxiety and/or OCD.

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.To learn more about the PACE IVIG study and see if you qualify go to the PACE  Foundation website.🌸 Sign up for my FREE series Survival Tools for Parents Raising Kids with Anxiety or OCD running from Nov 2nd-12th, 2023 at www.ATparentingsurvivalseries.com.***This podcast episode is sponsored by NOCD.

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.In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I explore how natural exposures can help and how to get them started.Want more in-depth support on how to help your child with anxiety or OCD?

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 shameSo 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.YouTube video for kids and teens: Do You Avoid Talking About Anxiety or OCD****This podcast episode is sponsored by NOCD.

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?

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.

PSP 316: How to Parent While Struggling with Chronic Pain

Raising kids with anxiety or OCD is hard enough. But when you add chronic pain to your daily routine it can push you over the edge. Often we backburner our own issues. We tell ourselves that we don’t have time for our struggles. That we don’t have time to address our needs. We push through and do more damage in the end.But the truth is if you don’t take care of yourself, you won’t be able to effectively take care of your child. Helping a child with anxiety or OCD is exhausting and chronic pain will only add to that fatigue.In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk to Dr. Andrea Durand, my go-to expert on all things pain related.

It can help to shift our perspective to focus on how to live and, more importantly, thrive with OCD. In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk about how to shift our kids from a victim to an empowerment mentality (and us as well)! We also dive into how to create a lifestyle that acknowledges and works on OCD organically within the home environment.To learn about the OCD Workshop series click here.Youtube video on How OCD is Like an Octopus.****This podcast episode is sponsored by NOCD.

PSP 304: Teaching Our Kids Not to Engage with OCD

OCD wants us to take its threats seriously. It wants us to debate with it, argue, and come up with solutions to circumvent the issues it presents. Afraid of germs - let’s think of ways you can avoid it.Afraid you’ll turn into something you aren’t - let’s remind yourself that you are a good person.Afraid you forgot something - let’s develop ways you can remember.All of these solutions are created based on the validity of what OCD is saying. When we learn how to unhook from the stories OCD wants to sell us, we weaken OCD’s grip.In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I explore how these issues can show up and how we can teach our kids and teens to not get caught in OCD’s trap.🌸 3-Days Only:4 Workshops for the Price of Two:🌸Sneaky Ways OCD Accommodations Get Through🌸How to Create a Therapeutic Home Environment for Your Child with OCD🌸Helping Anxious Kids Thrive in School🌸Sneaky Ways OCD Sabotages Success (and How to Avoid it)Click here to take advantage of this discount.

You’ll often hear the word “fight your OCD.” In fact, one of my favorite books about OCD is called Talking Back to OCD, by John March.

A way to approach OCD that may not seem like traditional “fighting” at all.In this week’s podcast I talk about the counterintuitive way to “fight” OCD and why we need to clarify this with our kids.I’m cooking up an OCD online, on-demand class just for kids and teens!

PSP: 267 Helping Kids with Emetophobia | The Fear of Throwing Up with Dawn Huebner

It might surprise some people that the fear of throwing up, Emetophobia, is one of the most common anxiety and OCD themes. For those of us raising a child with it, it isn’t surprising at all!Sometimes this fear is triggered by an event or experience, but often it is the imagination alone that causes this immobilizing concern. We all throw up and many of us see others throw up, but we are able to move past it without too much residual impact.When you have Emetophobia you get stuck. Stuck worrying that you might get sick. Stuck worrying that others around you might get sick. Stuck analyzing, avoiding and ruminating. A vicious cycle that can keep people from living a full life. I invited Dr. Dawn Huebner to the AT Parenting Survival Podcast to discuss how we can help our kids work through Emetophobia. In her book, Facing Mighty Fears about Throwing Up (Dr. Dawn's Mini Books about Mighty Fears), she teaches kids ages 6-10 years old skills to overcome these struggles.Dr. Dawn’s other Mini Books about Mighty Fears:Facing Mighty Fears About Trying New ThingsFacing Mighty Fears About HealthFacing Mighty Fears About Animals***This podcast episode is sponsored by NOCD.

We will all fall short sometimes and so will our children with anxiety or OCD. They will avoid, they will crumble, they will give in to their anxiety or OCD. That is all par for the course.More often than not they will view these situations as “failures.” They might beat themselves up or use the experience as evidence that they can’t do it again.So how do we approach our child who couldn’t make it, couldn’t do it, couldn’t get through it? There is learning and growth in everything we do, including our perceived failures.In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk about how to help our kids with these stumbles and how to turn those situations into a learning opportunity for growth.Has your child or teen done an exposure they regret? Here is a YouTube video to help them with that.***This podcast episode is sponsored by NOCD. NOCD provides online OCD therapy in the US, UK, Australia and Canada.

PSP: 264 Parenting a Child When You Have Anxiety or OCD as Well

It’s hard enough to parent a child with anxiety or OCD, but when your own mental health issues are added to the mix, it can be all encompassing. But it’s not all bad.Having your own anxiety or OCD issues can help you be a better parent to a child with anxiety or OCD. You can often empathize with your child more than others can. You know how it feels to have struggles and can relate to them in a way others may not. You might catch things earlier and get them help faster. All of this can be invaluable for your child.In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I invited Stacy Quick, an OCD therapist with NOCD to talk about how she parents three kids with anxiety and OCD, while having OCD herself. ***This podcast episode is sponsored by NOCD.

It is so tempting to try and rationalize with our child’s OCD. It’s a knee jerk reaction that most of us do at some point. We might try to problem-solve their OCD issues away.

Many parents who are raising children with both Autism and OCD find themselves in a no man’s land of sorts.

Her practice, CBT Spectrum specializes in both and her knowledge runs deep! I invited her on to the AT Parenting Survival Podcast to answer the most common questions I get from parents who are navigating both these words simultaneously.***This podcast episode is sponsored by NOCD.

PSP 218: The Power of Helping Your Child’s Anxiety by Working on Your Own

Anxiety and OCD doesn’t live in a bubble, it lives in our house. As parents we have to walk the walk and talk the talk. But what does that mean? It means tapping into our own fears, regardless of whether we have anxiety or OCD ourselves. It means knowing ourselves and the human fears that come with it. It means walking towards fear and discomfort the way we ask our kids to do.In this AT Parenting Survival Podcast episode I talk about why it’s important for all parents to examine their own fears to help their kids. I also talk about how to start doing it!This podcast episode is sponsored by NOCD. NOCD provides online OCD therapy in the US, UK, Australia and Canada.

PSP 216: Helping Kids with Anxiety or OCD Develop Self-Compassion

Kids with anxiety and OCD often struggle with self-love and self-compassion. It is developmentally common for all kids to struggle with self-compassion, but when you have anxiety and OCD it can be even harder.In this episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk with Madina Alam, a Clinical Advisor with NOCD about how we, as parents, can help our kids develop more self-compassion. When kids have more self-compassion, they are also more empowered to work on their issues! So working on this can be powerful.This podcast episode is sponsored by NOCD.

PSP 214: Interview with Dr. Shefali | Helping Mothers Turn Pain into Power

Dr. Shefali is a prominent clinical psychologist and the New York Times best selling author of The Conscious Parent and The Awakened Family. In her new book, A Radical Awakening, she talks to women abou how to take their pain and turn it into power. According to Oprah Winfrey, “The world needs to know. Trailblazing. Life-enhancing. [A Radical Awakening is] one of those books you will want to keep on your nightstand.”In my interview with Dr. Shefali I dive deeper into what it means to be a parent and mother to kids with anxiety and OCD. We talk about how we separate their pain and their journey from our own. We go into how to live our own authentic truth and become free from the burden of living in judgment. This podcast episode is sponsored by NOCD.

PSP 211: Why Anxiety or OCD Therapy is Not Enough for Our Kids

Many of us think that if only we can find a qualified anxiety or OCD child therapist, all of our child’s struggles would go away.I wish that were true. I wish that was the case for the children that I have treated and for my own children.But the truth is, as parents we have a major role in how our children do. Even if they are refusing help, there are things we do that can help or hurt the situation. There are things that we need to do for ourselves as well in order to survive.In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk about what our role is as parents and how it can help our kids.For more ongoing support join The AT Parenting Community.

PSP 210: How to Help Kids with Anxiety or OCD When They are Angry

Kids with anxiety or OCD aren’t just fearful, often they are angry. Anxiety and OCD can cause kids to rage, meltdown and talk back. It can make them dig their heels in and be oppositional. But when parents react to those behaviors in “typical” ways, they often hit a brick wall. Why? Because often anxiety and OCD is the undercurrent driving those emotions. So if you don’t address the undercurrent, you're missing a crucial piece of the puzzle.In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk about how to differentiate between developmentally typical anger vs anxiety or OCD triggered anger. I also talk about the counterintuitive approach to take when you know that the anger was caused by your child’s anxiety or OCD.Also, sign up for my FREE series called Survival Tools for Parents Raising Kids with Anxiety or OCD.

Change is hard on most kids, but it can be especially hard on anxious kids. So what happens when they have to change their teacher or therapist? It can be rough, especially if they were well bonded to the teacher or therapist before the change.Change offers our kids the ability to practice flexibility and can build their adaptation skills. The question is how to do that - especially when they are devastated by the loss.In this episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast, I talk about some ways to discuss this change with your child to help them transition successfully to a new teacher or therapist.Also, sign up for my FREE series called Survival Tools for Parents Raising Kids with Anxiety or OCD.

PSP 206: How Self-Esteem Plays a Role in Kids with Anxiety or OCD

Anxiety and OCD will often take a swing at our child’s self-esteem. It can do that with the anxious or intrusive thoughts it bombards them with. It can do that by paralyzing them with fear, as they watch their peers not struggle. It can also be present alongside anxiety or OCD. It can help pick their anxiety or OCD themes. Social anxiety, perfectionism and Moral OCD all use self-esteem in their arsenal of weapons. In this podcast, I explore how self-esteem dances with anxiety and OCD. I will highlight what areas to look into and talk about how focusing on your child’s self-esteem will in turn help their battle with anxiety and OCD.More resources on self-esteem: https://www.anxioustoddlers.com/?s=Social+anxiety&submit=***This podcast is for informational purposes only and should not be used to replace the guidance of a qualified professional.To join the AT Parenting Community go to: www.ATparentingcommunity.comVisit my website at www.ATparentingSurvival.comSign up for my weekly email newsletter:https://pages.convertkit.com/740ba8cd83/92109b7172Take one of my online classes:To view the entire online school library, go to:http://www.ATparentingSurvivalSchool.comClasses include:How to Crush Social Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/crush-social-anxietyParenting Kids with OCD http://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/child-ocdCrush Moral OCD in Kidshttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/moral-ocdTeaching Kids to Crush Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/crush-anxietyHelping Kids with Anxiety or OCD Through Difficult Behaviorshttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/difficult-behaviorsHelping Kids Who are Scared to Sleephttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/scared-to-sleepHandling Sensory-Based Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/sensory-anxietyLibrary of Live Anxiety and OCD Classes (20 hours of class replays)http://www.ATparentingSurvivalschool.com/p/libraryLet me become your $5 mini-coach.

PSP 205: Helping Kids with Anxiety or OCD Cope with Grief or Trauma

It’s hard enough to have anxiety or OCD, but what happens when your child is hit with grief or trauma? It can feel like a muddy, chaotic mess. Unfortunately life happens and so do tragedies. Our kids are not immune to life happening to them, I wish they were. Anxiety and OCD are opportunistic. It will feed off the grief and trauma by trying to grow new themes and new compulsions.Our family has suffered an unthinkable and sudden loss. My children are grieving the loss of their father. That alone would be an insurmountable feat. But they are also quietly fighting off another more subtle battle. The battle of an opportunistic disorder that thrives in chaos and tries to piggyback on any of life’s struggles. In this episode I talk about how to keep your head above water, while trying to make sure that your child’s anxiety or OCD doesn’t gain momentum.***This podcast is for informational purposes only and should not be used to replace the guidance of a qualified professional.To join the AT Parenting Community go to: www.ATparentingcommunity.comVisit my website at www.ATparentingSurvival.comSign up for my weekly email newsletter:https://pages.convertkit.com/740ba8cd83/92109b7172Take one of my online classes:To view the entire online school library, go to:http://www.ATparentingSurvivalSchool.comClasses include:How to Crush Social Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/crush-social-anxietyParenting Kids with OCD http://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/child-ocdCrush Moral OCD in Kidshttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/moral-ocdTeaching Kids to Crush Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/crush-anxietyHelping Kids with Anxiety or OCD Through Difficult Behaviorshttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/difficult-behaviorsHelping Kids Who are Scared to Sleephttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/scared-to-sleepHandling Sensory-Based Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/sensory-anxietyLibrary of Live Anxiety and OCD Classes (20 hours of class replays)http://www.ATparentingSurvivalschool.com/p/libraryLet me become your $5 mini-coach.

PSP 204: Update on Tragedy that has Devastated Our Family

For those of you that aren’t aware, my husband died suddenly of a blood clot ten days after a minor Achilles surgery. The grief has been all consuming for me and my three children. I know my podcast, youtube channel, social media posts and emails have abruptly stopped almost a month ago and I didn’t have the energy to even explain why.I was touched by all the outpouring of love from around the world from those that heard about my loss. I wanted to thank everyone who reached out, mailed me cards and donated to the gofundme account that circulated FB. The love was definitely felt from all directions and was so appreciated.After he died I decided to close my practice, as my hours were only evenings and weekends, the time my kids will need me the most. My online resources, classes and AT Parenting Community membership will be my sole focus moving forward. Currently I plan on returning to my online work on April 1st. I made this video to be played at my husband’s funeral more for his co-workers than for me. Even though it is raw and vulnerable I was encouraged to share it more broadly and I decided to do so in the hopes it could impact even one more person to live a life full of love and connection. Click here to watch it:https://vimeo.com/516303126/7ee978deb7To help grieving children deal with the loss of their parent, you can donate in honor of Jimmie Daniels at https://billysplace.me. They have been a complete godsend for our family during this time.We are still grieving, so please accept my apologies for not commenting or responding if you reach out. I am going to be staying off social media until I return on April 1st.***This podcast is for informational purposes only and should not be used to replace the guidance of a qualified professional.To join the AT Parenting Community go to: www.ATparentingcommunity.comVisit my website at www.ATparentingSurvival.comSign up for my weekly email newsletter:https://pages.convertkit.com/740ba8cd83/92109b7172Take one of my online classes:To view the entire online school library, go to:http://www.ATparentingSurvivalSchool.comClasses include:How to Crush Social Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/crush-social-anxietyParenting Kids with OCD http://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/child-ocdCrush Moral OCD in Kidshttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/moral-ocdTeaching Kids to Crush Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/crush-anxietyHelping Kids with Anxiety or OCD Through Difficult Behaviorshttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/difficult-behaviorsHelping Kids Who are Scared to Sleephttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/scared-to-sleepHandling Sensory-Based Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/sensory-anxietyLibrary of Live Anxiety and OCD Classes (20 hours of class replays)http://www.ATparentingSurvivalschool.com/p/libraryLet me become your $5 mini-coach.

PSP 203: How Online Support Can Be A Game Changer for Parents Raising Kids with Anxiety or OCD

There are common stories among parents raising kids with anxiety or OCD. Stories of struggling to find a well trained anxiety or OCD child therapist. Stories of feeling isolated and alone. Stories of friends, family or the school not fully getting the depths of their child’s struggles.These are stories that don’t have to continue. There is plenty of support out there. Support that can reach every corner of the globe - you just need to know where to find it.In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk with Jo, a mom from the UK, who was feeling lost and overwhelmed on how to help her daughter. She was lost until she discovered online resources that helped guide her on what to do next.To join the AT Parenting Community and super size your support and knowledge, go to www.ATparentingcommunity.com.***This podcast is for informational purposes only and should not be used to replace the guidance of a qualified professional.To join the AT Parenting Community go to: www.ATparentingcommunity.comVisit my website at www.ATparentingSurvival.comSign up for my weekly email newsletter:https://pages.convertkit.com/740ba8cd83/92109b7172Take one of my online classes:To view the entire online school library, go to:http://www.ATparentingSurvivalSchool.comClasses include:How to Crush Social Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/crush-social-anxietyParenting Kids with OCD http://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/child-ocdCrush Moral OCD in Kidshttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/moral-ocdTeaching Kids to Crush Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/crush-anxietyHelping Kids with Anxiety or OCD Through Difficult Behaviorshttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/difficult-behaviorsHelping Kids Who are Scared to Sleephttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/scared-to-sleepHandling Sensory-Based Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/sensory-anxietyLibrary of Live Anxiety and OCD Classes (20 hours of class replays)http://www.ATparentingSurvivalschool.com/p/libraryLet me become your $5 mini-coach.

PSP 202: Why Mental Health Professionals are Missing Signs of OCD and The Damage it Causes

When you get assessed by a mental health professional you assume that they would be well versed in all possible diagnoses. You assume they will identify, diagnose and treat any possible mental health struggle. Unfortunately that assumption is not only wrong, but dangerous.OCD seems to be the step-child of mental health education and training. Which is mind boggling considering, according to the International OCD Foundation, 1 out of 100 adults have OCD and 1 out of 200 children and teens do as well. Think about that for a moment. The same amount of children have OCD as Diabetes. This is not a rare mental health disorder, and yet there is this pervasive lack of training and expertise around the issue. Mental health professionals aren’t given the education in their graduate programs. They are often not taught that OCD is not just about washing hands or tapping some magical number. They often don’t realize that a person can have OCD if they have an intrusive thought that they are a bad person and they need to confess all their “bad” thoughts to those they love. They often don’t understand that a person can have OCD if they have an intrusive feeling that they might stop breathing, so they have to continually take deep breaths. Or that a person can have OCD if they have an intrusive thought that they want to harm others or themselves. That one in particular can be dire in the hands of a mental health professional who does not understand OCD.According to the International OCD Foundation (link: https://iocdf.org/professionals/training-institute/ for that statement), on average it can take someone up to 17 years from the onset of symptoms to get properly diagnosed and begin receiving effective treatment. That is unacceptable.In this week’s episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast, I talk to Cameron Kleimo, a mom and therapist who has a similar story to my own. Her graduate program didn’t teach her how to spot OCD. And it wasn’t until she was stumped by her own child’s behavior that she discovered that they both had OCD.Click here to listen:To learn more about the missed signs of childhood ocd click here (insert this link https://www.anxioustoddlers.com/ocd-in-children/).If you are a mental health professional wanting more training on OCD click here (insert this link: https://iocdf.org/professionals/training-institute/)For the IOCDF Guidelines for pediatric OCD medication go to: https://kids.iocdf.org/professionals/mh/meds-for-pediatric-ocd/To take my class, How to Crush OCD go to:Www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/child-ocdTo learn more about Cameron’s work visit her site:https://www.sensorymom.com/Also I’d love to invite you to sign up for my FREE 3-part video series: Self-Care for Parents Raising Kids with Anxiety or OCD.

PSP 201: How to Motivate Our Kids to Work on Anxiety or OCD

One of the biggest challenges parents face when raising a child with anxiety or OCD is...motivation. How do we motivate our kids to face their fears? How do we motivate our kids to sit in discomfort? How do we motivate them to even talk about their struggles.That can feel like an uphill battle.And yet, if you don’t have buy-in, it will be like trying to drive while someone has their foot firmly on the brake.Our children’s struggles are their struggles, not ours. And only they will be able to take the necessary steps that will lead to long-term change. We can do our part by reducing our accommodations and our role in the anxiety or OCD, but the rest will be up to them.So that brings us back to motivation.In this episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast, I invited Dr. Amy Jenks, an anxiety & OCD therapist in the Bay Area to chat with me about how to help parents motivate their kids to work on anxiety or OCD.Click here to listen:To learn more about Dr. Amy Jenks and her work, visit her website: https://bayareaocd.comAlso I’d love to invite you to sign up for my FREE 3-part video series: Self-Care for Parents Raising Kids with Anxiety or OCD.

PSP 193: How to Not Pass Our Fears onto Our Kids

Our kids are emotional sponges. They soak up our happiness, but they also soak up our fears. Often when trying to help our kids with anxiety we might project our own worries onto them. Sometimes we might spread our fear throughout the house.In this episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast I dive into three main topics. First, how do we keep our fears in check during this global pandemic and societal unrest so we don’t inadvertently spread those fears to our children? Second, how can we decipher what are our fears and what are our child’s fears? Sometimes we smush the two together and reality gets blurred. Lastly, how can we respond to our kids when their anxiety makes us anxious? What can we do when sitting with our children’s anxiety creates our own?***This podcast is for informational purposes only and should not be used to replace the guidance of a qualified professional.Let me become your $5 mini-coach.

PSP 191: Should You Tell Your Child They Have Anxiety or OCD?

Many parents worry about telling their child they have anxiety or OCD. Some worry about potentially labeling their kids. Some worry that it will make their child feel different. Others worry about the stigma the child will face. In this week’s AT Parenting Survival episode, I dive deep into the pros and cons of telling your child that they have anxiety or OCD. I also explore the pros and cons of reading children’s books with various anxiety or OCD themes. Many parents worry that exposing a child to other anxiety or OCD themes, will cause them to “catch” new themes and make their struggles worse. Resources Discussed in Podcast:Unstuck: an OCD Kids Movie www.OCDKidsmovie.comPractice Being Brave: Owning my OCD: https://amzn.to/35WvfnDWhat to Do When I Worry too Much: https://amzn.to/2Jn9LbQWhat to Do When Your Brain Gets Stuck: https://amzn.to/3oO9aQNOutsmarting Worry: https://amzn.to/3jNIDzvThe ACT Workbook for Teens with OCD: https://amzn.to/3ejCWYRStuff That’s Loud: https://amzn.to/3231Gj6 My Youtube channel: www.youtube.com/c/anxioustoddlers78 *** This podcast is for informational purposes only and should not be used to replace the guidance of a qualified professional. Let me become your $5 mini-coach.

PSP 190: When OCD isn’t a Fear But Rather a Feeling of Disgust

Unfortunately many people believe, including some mental health professionals, that in order to have OCD you must have a core fear. Sadly, many people get misdiagnosed because people are searching up, down and all around for a fear. But OCD doesn’t have to be an intrusive thought, it can also be an intrusive feeling.Many people with OCD will have an overwhelming feeling of disgust or grossness. This feeling causes so much discomfort that they will do everything in their power to avoid it. That is why they often develop compulsions and extreme avoidance. In this week’s episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast I explore how disgust and grossness play a role in OCD.To join my FREE 3-Part Video Series: Survival Tools for Parents Raising Kids with Anxiety or OCD go to http://bit.ly/survivaltoolsforparents ***This podcast is for informational purposes only and should not be used to replace the guidance of a qualified professional.Let me become your $5 mini-coach.

PSP 189: Handling the Grief that Comes with an Anxiety or OCD Diagnosis

Most of us had a fantasy of what parenting would look like. It might have involved Pinterest crafts, bake sales and play dates. It probably didn’t include hyperventilating, panic and avoidance. None of us signed up to parent a child with anxiety or OCD and most of us weren’t prepared to do it.It’s normal to have grief over what would have been. It’s normal to feel sad about the extra layer of struggles that were scooped onto your parental plate. But how do you move through that grief? How do you work through it so you are better equipped to help your child?In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk about the grief that most of us feel when raising a child with anxiety or OCD, myself included.

PSP 187: Empowering Our Kids with Anxiety or OCD to Help Themselves

We want the best for our kids. We want our kids to blossom and live a happy fulfilling life. But when our kids start to struggle with anxiety or OCD we might think that rosy picture is gone forever. We might think we have to “cure” anxiety or OCD for them to be well again. But that’s the wrong way to look at it. We don’t need to “cure” them, because that’s actually an impossibility, we need to train them. Kids with anxiety or OCD can have a beautifully productive and happy life, but they need the right tools and the right training to go along with it.In this latest episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast, I talk about the importance in empowering our kids to help themselves and how to build their skills for long-term success.To join my FREE 3-Part Video Series: Survival Tools for Parents Raising Kids with Anxiety or OCD go to http://bit.ly/survivaltoolsforparents ***This podcast is for informational purposes only and should not be used to replace the guidance of a qualified professional.Let me become your $5 mini-coach.

PSP 185: New OCD Graphic Novel for Teens | Interview with Jason Adam Katzenstein

Jason Adam Katzenstein gets it. He gets the struggle of what it feels like to have OCD and he gets the fear that comes along with trying to crush it. Luckily for the OCD community, Jason is a popular and gifted cartoonist who decided to take his personal and vulnerable story and turn it into a graphic novel for the rest of the world to see.Through images and words, he is able to encapsulate the struggles of OCD and the feeling of triumph when you start to push back. I had the pleasure of talking with Jason about his life, his book and his view of OCD.

PSP 184: Four Simple Steps to Help Kids Self-Regulate with Lauren Spigelmyer

Many of our kids have a hard time self-regulating. Just like other skills, we often have to teach our kids how to successfully handle their difficult emotions. This can be especially hard for kids that have anxiety and OCD. When you are a child who already struggles with hyperarousal, it doesn’t take much to throw you completely off kilter.That is why I invited Lauren Spigelmyer, the founder and Executive Director of The Behavior Hub. She is Also a Upenn Professor at the Trauma-invested Schools. She offers us a simple framework in which we can help our children self-regulate. To learn more about Lauren’s online classes visit:https://the-behavior-hub.teachable.com/?affcode=198789_jrh0ok1z (affiliate link)Do you want me to be your $5 mini-coach?

PSP 182: Helping Anxious Kids Wear Masks

Masks are a struggle for many kids, but if your child has anxiety or OCD it can be a much BIGGER struggle. This could be due to many reasons. Maybe they feel claustrophobic. Maybe they have sensory issues. Or maybe they have social anxiety and it seems embarrassing. Regardless of what the struggle is the end result is the same – a child refusing to wear a mask.This becomes extra tricky when masks are required in many areas. So in this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast, I outline some mask hacks to help reduce your child’s anxiety and get them to acclimate to the discomfort.Mini-Coaching Episodes:I am starting my mini-coaching episodes!

PSP 180: Important Highlights from the OCD Conference for Parents

The International OCD Foundation’s annual conference was cancelled along with pretty much everything else in 2020. But the online version did not disappoint, offering some great takeaways for parents raising kids with OCD. In the latest episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast I highlight some areas parents need to be updated on if they haven’t already. We talk about approaches for treatment resistant kids and how the Inhibitory Learning Model is altering the way we do exposures. Much of this is a review, but a great reminder of how things have been tweaked due to research in the last several years.***This podcast is for informational purposes only and should not be used to replace the guidance of a qualified professional.Visit my website at www.ATparentingSurvival.comSign up for my weekly email newsletter:https://pages.convertkit.com/740ba8cd83/92109b7172Take one of my online classes:To view the entire online school library, go to:http://www.ATparentingSurvivalSchool.comClasses include:How to Crush Social Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/crush-social-anxietyParenting Kids with OCD http://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/child-ocdCrush Moral OCD in Kidshttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/moral-ocdTeaching Kids to Crush Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/crush-anxietyHelping Kids with Anxiety or OCD Through Difficult Behaviorshttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/difficult-behaviorsHelping Kids Who are Scared to Sleephttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/scared-to-sleepHandling Sensory-Based Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/sensory-anxietyLibrary of Live Anxiety and OCD Classes (20 hours of class replays)http://www.ATparentingSurvivalschool.com/p/libraryUltimate list of helpful anxiety products:https://www.ATparentingsurvival.com/reduce-child-anxiety/ To join my private Facebook group visit:https://www.facebook.com/groups/ATparentinganxiouskids/Interested in my AT Parenting Community Membership?

PSP 179: Understanding Magical Thinking in OCD

OCD symptoms and behaviors can look vastly different in each person. You might have a child who has compulsions centered around contamination while another person might have a child with compulsions around magical thinking. You might have a child with both!I always tell parents that you want to be well versed in all the many ways OCD can pop up. OCD is whack-a-mole and it often changes themes and compulsions over time. The best proactive action you can take to help your child with OCD is knowledge.In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I explain what OCD magical thinking is, how it shows up and how to help a child who is dealing with it.***This podcast is for informational purposes only and should not be used to replace the guidance of a qualified professional.Visit my website at www.ATparentingSurvival.comSign up for my weekly email newsletter:https://pages.convertkit.com/740ba8cd83/92109b7172Take one of my online classes:To view the entire online school library, go to:http://www.ATparentingSurvivalSchool.comClasses include:How to Crush Social Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/crush-social-anxietyParenting Kids with OCD http://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/child-ocdCrush Moral OCD in Kidshttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/moral-ocdTeaching Kids to Crush Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/crush-anxietyHelping Kids with Anxiety or OCD Through Difficult Behaviorshttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/difficult-behaviorsHelping Kids Who are Scared to Sleephttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/scared-to-sleepHandling Sensory-Based Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/sensory-anxietyLibrary of Live Anxiety and OCD Classes (20 hours of class replays)http://www.ATparentingSurvivalschool.com/p/libraryUltimate list of helpful anxiety products:https://www.ATparentingsurvival.com/reduce-child-anxiety/ To join my private Facebook group visit:https://www.facebook.com/groups/ATparentinganxiouskids/Interested in my AT Parenting Community Membership?

PSP 178: Helping Anxious Kids Who Crumble Under Pressure

Anxious kids crumble under pressure for a variety of reasons. They might worry about deadlines and school work. They might worry about the social pressures of being called on or being watched. They might fear being less than perfect or being worse than others. They might have difficulties making decisions, worried about picking the wrong choice.In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast, I talk about why kids crumble under pressure and how to help them. Sometimes avoidance is actually a bigger issue called PDA (Pathological Demand Avoidance). This is a subtype on the autistic spectrum. Currently it is not as well known in the United States.

PSP 173: What to Do When Therapy isn’t Enough for a Child with Anxiety or OCD

Your child needs help, but therapy isn’t cutting it. Maybe it’s because she refuses to go or perhaps it’s because her issues are just too intense for outpatient therapy.What’s a parent supposed to do when the help isn’t helping? Outpatient therapy is where the road starts, not where it ends. Many parents don’t realize that. In this episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast I invited Sami, a member of my AT Parenting Community to discuss her journey trying to help her daughter with OCD. She discussed the process of getting her into a PHP (Partial Hospitalization Program) and her experience once she was in.Sami is also a Life Coach for teen girls. She offers programs to support teens, including a few that help anxious teens.

There are ways that we can maintain our health and mental stability, while still helping a less than stable child.In this episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk about the quicksand many of us find ourselves in and some simple ways you can claw yourself out of it.Also, to sign up for the 3-Part Video Series: Self Care for Parents Raising Kids with Anxiety or OCD starting on June 23rd, 2020 go to:www.bit.ly/selfcareseries4 or text ATSELFCARE to the number 44222.***This podcast is for informational purposes only and should not be used to replace the guidance of a qualified professional.Visit my website at www.ATparentingSurvival.comSign up for my weekly email newsletter:https://pages.convertkit.com/740ba8cd83/92109b7172Take one of my online classes:To view the entire online school library, go to:http://www.ATparentingSurvivalSchool.comClasses include:How to Crush Social Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/crush-social-anxietyParenting Kids with OCD http://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/child-ocdCrush Moral OCD in Kidshttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/moral-ocdTeaching Kids to Crush Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/crush-anxietyHelping Kids with Anxiety or OCD Through Difficult Behaviorshttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/difficult-behaviorsHelping Kids Who are Scared to Sleephttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/scared-to-sleepHandling Sensory-Based Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/sensory-anxietyLibrary of Live Anxiety and OCD Classes (20 hours of class replays)http://www.ATparentingSurvivalschool.com/p/libraryUltimate list of helpful anxiety products:https://www.ATparentingsurvival.com/reduce-child-anxiety/ To join my private Facebook group visit:https://www.facebook.com/groups/ATparentinganxiouskids/Interested in my AT Parenting Community Membership?

PSP 171: Understanding Emetophobia, The Fear of Throwing Up with Chrissie Hodges

Parents often grapple with what may have caused their child to become so deathly afraid of throwing up. They come up with theories. Maybe it was the time she saw her cousin throw up? Or maybe it was the time she got sick in the car? Or maybe it was the time she got food poisoning?But in reality, the fear of throwing up (also known as Emetophobia) just happens.Kids who are genetically prone to anxiety or OCD are at a higher risk of developing Emetophobia. Yes, it can be triggered by an external event, but the genetic seeds are usually just waiting to sprout. That event often only triggers what was already waiting in the wings.Just think about how many times people have seen others throw up or who have had bad experiences throwing up themselves. Most of those people don’t develop a severe fear of throw up. Emetophobia is just one of many ways anxiety and OCD can manifest.So how do you help your child with Emetophobia? Often it is the opposite of what you would think.I invited Chrissie Hodges to the AT Parenting Survival Podcast to discuss her life long battle with Emetophobia. Chrissie has been a powerful advocate for those suffering with OCD.

PSP 170: How to Help Anxious Kids Help Themselves

It is hard to watch our anxious kids suffer. It is hard to stomach their pain. It is very tempting to swoop in and protect them. To soften their fall. To protect them from feeling discomfort. But that is robbing them of the opportunity to build their skills. I find that the best way to help anxious kids is to teach them how to help themselves.But easy to say, right? But how does one do that?In this week’s podcast episode I outline some of the ways parents can start to empower their kids to help themselves. To sign up for the 3-Part Video Series on Self Care for Parents Raising Kids with Anxiety or OCD go to:www.bit.ly/selfcareseries4***This podcast is for informational purposes only and should not be used to replace the guidance of a qualified professional.Visit my website at www.ATparentingSurvival.comSign up for my weekly email newsletter:https://pages.convertkit.com/740ba8cd83/92109b7172Take one of my online classes:To view the entire online school library, go to:http://www.ATparentingSurvivalSchool.comClasses include:How to Crush Social Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/crush-social-anxietyParenting Kids with OCD http://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/child-ocdCrush Moral OCD in Kidshttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/moral-ocdTeaching Kids to Crush Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/crush-anxietyHelping Kids with Anxiety or OCD Through Difficult Behaviorshttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/difficult-behaviorsHelping Kids Who are Scared to Sleephttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/scared-to-sleepHandling Sensory-Based Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/sensory-anxietyLibrary of Live Anxiety and OCD Classes (20 hours of class replays)http://www.ATparentingSurvivalschool.com/p/libraryUltimate list of helpful anxiety products:https://www.ATparentingsurvival.com/reduce-child-anxiety/ To join my private Facebook group visit:https://www.facebook.com/groups/ATparentinganxiouskids/Interested in my AT Parenting Community Membership?

PSP 169: A Parent’s Journey Through Anxiety and Autism

Autism can be a confusing disorder because it often comes with so many other comorbid conditions. Kids with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can show signs of anxiety, OCD and ADHD. Initially it can be hard for parents and even professionals to get an accurate diagnosis.In this month’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast segment Member Spotlight, I talk to Lynn about her struggles trying to understand her daughter’s behavior. She talks about how her daughter was given an anxiety diagnosis early on, but how she felt like something was missing.To listen click below:***This podcast is for informational purposes only and should not be used to replace the guidance of a qualified professional.Visit my website at www.ATparentingSurvival.comSign up for my weekly email newsletter:https://pages.convertkit.com/740ba8cd83/92109b7172Take one of my online classes:To view the entire online school library, go to:http://www.ATparentingSurvivalSchool.comClasses include:How to Crush Social Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/crush-social-anxietyParenting Kids with OCD http://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/child-ocdCrush Moral OCD in Kidshttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/moral-ocdTeaching Kids to Crush Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/crush-anxietyHelping Kids with Anxiety or OCD Through Difficult Behaviorshttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/difficult-behaviorsHelping Kids Who are Scared to Sleephttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/scared-to-sleepHandling Sensory-Based Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/sensory-anxietyLibrary of Live Anxiety and OCD Classes (20 hours of class replays)http://www.ATparentingSurvivalschool.com/p/libraryUltimate list of helpful anxiety products:https://www.ATparentingsurvival.com/reduce-child-anxiety/ To join my private Facebook group visit:https://www.facebook.com/groups/ATparentinganxiouskids/Interested in my AT Parenting Community Membership?

PSP 168: How to Spot OCD Symptoms in Teens

Most kids with OCD go into adulthood without a diagnosis. This means years of feeling different. Years of feeling ashamed. And years of little to no support. If parents and therapists can learn how to spot OCD symptoms in teens, we could help them save years of unnecessary pain and suffering.OCD requires a very specific therapeutic approach called Exposure Response Prevention (ERP). If a teen’s OCD symptoms are missed, they are also missing the help they so desperately need and deserve.Sadly teens with OCD who go undiagnosed have a higher likelihood of suffering from depression and ongoing symptoms.So what are the signs of OCD in teens? It’s not always an easy thing to detect. Teens with OCD have had years to develop compulsions. Many of them have gotten very good at the art of hiding these behaviors.Let’s start with what OCD is and what it isn’t.OCD is not about being a “neat freak.” Many extremely messy teens are silently suffering from OCD. OCD is not about being obsessed with organizing. Many disorganized teens can still have OCD.OCD is about having an intrusive thought, feeling, image or song stuck in one’s head and the need to do or avoid something to get some brief relief. The problem is, the more you do or avoid, the bigger the OCD grows.OCD isn’t just about germs. In fact, many people with OCD don’t worry about germs. There are many different “sub-types” or themes around OCD.The common denominator though is this: They all have an intrusive thought, feeling, image or song in their head and they all do compulsions to get some relief. So how can you tell if your teen has OCD?When in doubt, go see an OCD therapist to get a proper assessment. You can visit the International OCD Foundation’s therapist directory (www.iocdf.org/find-help) to see if there is anyone in your area. It is always good to be proactive and get professional help. This podcast episode is just to help jump start you in thinking about OCD in a different way so you don’t miss it.You can also check out NOCD teletherapy services at: https://go.treatmyocd.com/at_parenting***This podcast is for informational purposes only and should not be used to replace the guidance of a qualified professional.Visit my website at www.ATparentingSurvival.comSign up for my weekly email newsletter:https://pages.convertkit.com/740ba8cd83/92109b7172Take one of my online classes:To view the entire online school library, go to:http://www.ATparentingSurvivalSchool.comClasses include:How to Crush Social Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/crush-social-anxietyParenting Kids with OCD http://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/child-ocdCrush Moral OCD in Kidshttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/moral-ocdTeaching Kids to Crush Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/crush-anxietyHelping Kids with Anxiety or OCD Through Difficult Behaviorshttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/difficult-behaviorsHelping Kids Who are Scared to Sleephttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/scared-to-sleepHandling Sensory-Based Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/sensory-anxietyLibrary of Live Anxiety and OCD Classes (20 hours of class replays)http://www.ATparentingSurvivalschool.com/p/libraryUltimate list of helpful anxiety products:https://www.ATparentingsurvival.com/reduce-child-anxiety/ To join my private Facebook group visit:https://www.facebook.com/groups/ATparentinganxiouskids/Interested in my AT Parenting Community Membership?

PSP 167: What is Emotional Contamination OCD?

OCD can wreak havoc in any family. But one sub-type of OCD that can be particularly painful is emotional contamination OCD. Emotional contamination issues can hurt family relationships and confuse parents.Sadly most people, even mental health professionals, understand very little about how OCD can manifest. OCD isn’t just about germs and constant cleaning. OCD has many themes and sub-types. It is so important for families raising kids with OCD to educate themselves on the various ways OCD can show up. The best defense against OCD is to recognize it’s many disguises.In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast, I discuss what emotional contamination OCD is and how it shows up in children and teens.***You also don’t want to miss Alisha’s Picky Eating Workshop Series outlining the 2-Step Process to moving your child From picky eater to healthy child.

PSP 164: A Parent’s Journey Handling Her Child’s Separation Anxiety

Clinical Separation Anxiety isn’t a toddler problem. In fact, symptoms often start to show up when kids are in elementary or middle school. Separation Anxiety Disorder isn’t about having a toddler follow you around. It is about having a child who experiences sheer panic when they are not by your side. It is about having a child who needs to know your whereabouts every second of every day. In this month’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast Member Spotlight segment, I interviewed Shannon, an AT Parenting Community Member and a mom to three kids. She graciously agreed to share with us her journey helping her kids with separation anxiety.***This podcast is for informational purposes only and should not be used to replace the guidance of a qualified professional.Visit my website at www.ATparentingSurvival.com Sign up for my weekly email newsletter:https://pages.convertkit.com/740ba8cd83/92109b7172Take one of my online classes: To view the entire online school library, go to:http://www.ATparentingSurvivalSchool.comClasses include:How to Crush Social Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/crush-social-anxietyParenting Kids with OCD http://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/child-ocdCrush Moral OCD in Kidshttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/moral-ocdTeaching Kids to Crush Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/crush-anxiety Helping Kids with Anxiety or OCD Through Difficult Behaviorshttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/difficult-behaviorsHelping Kids Who are Scared to Sleephttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/scared-to-sleepHandling Sensory-Based Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/sensory-anxietyLibrary of Live Anxiety and OCD Classes (20 hours of class replays)http://www.ATparentingSurvivalschool.com/p/libraryUltimate list of helpful anxiety products:https://www.ATparentingsurvival.com/reduce-child-anxiety/ To join my private Facebook group visit:https://www.facebook.com/groups/ATparentinganxiouskids/Interested in my AT Parenting Community Membership?

PSP 163: Three of the Most Commonly Missed Compulsions in Childhood OCD

OCD loves to hide. It loves to go undetected. We often think that compulsions are obvious behaviors, like over washing or over straightening. Things that we can see. Things we can measure.But compulsions are often so much more complicated than that. They can be subtle. They can hide in plain sight.In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast, I reveal the three most commonly missed compulsions in childhood OCD. If your child has OCD, it is highly likely that they are doing at least one of these.Links to kids youtube videos:Ocd loop: https://youtu.be/SjoNAKgt2yQMental compulsions: https://youtu.be/bJR7KUGmeokReassurance: https://youtu.be/MMHDc7oAuagUnstuck: an OCD Kids Movie: www.ocdkidsmovie.com***This podcast is for informational purposes only and should not be used to replace the guidance of a qualified professional.Visit my website at www.ATparentingSurvival.comSign up for my weekly email newsletter:https://pages.convertkit.com/740ba8cd83/92109b7172Take one of my online classes:To view the entire online school library, go to:http://www.ATparentingSurvivalSchool.comClasses include:How to Crush Social Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/crush-social-anxietyParenting Kids with OCDhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/child-ocdCrush Moral OCD in Kidshttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/moral-ocdTeaching Kids to Crush Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/crush-anxiety Helping Kids with Anxiety or OCD Through Difficult Behaviorshttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/difficult-behaviorsHelping Kids Who are Scared to Sleephttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/scared-to-sleepHandling Sensory-Based Anxietyhttp://www.ATparentingsurvivalschool.com/p/sensory-anxietyLibrary of Live Anxiety and OCD Classes (20 hours of class replays)http://www.ATparentingSurvivalschool.com/p/libraryUltimate list of helpful anxiety products:https://www.ATparentingsurvival.com/reduce-child-anxiety/To join my private Facebook group visit:https://www.facebook.com/groups/ATparentinganxiouskids/Interested in my AT Parenting Community Membership?

PSP 161: A Parent’s Story of Raising a Child with Anxiety & OCD During a Pandemic

Raising a child during a pandemic is a BIG challenge. But when you add anxiety and OCD to the mix, it can be a tall order to handle.Every month I have a segment on the AT Parenting Survival Podcast called Member Spotlight.

We are living in an ever-changing world. Our kids are living in an ever-changing world. This might be a scary notion to many, especially considering what is going on in our world right now.But what if we had the capability of improving our child’s resilience? What if we could teach our kids to systematically move towards their fears instead of away from them.

PSP 155: An Adoptive Mom Talks About her Journey Raising a Child with Invisible Needs

Many of us fantasized what parenthood would look like way before we had children. Our ideas of parenthood might have been solidified in early childhood, as we tucked our baby doll into her toy crib. Or it may have been dreamt about the moment we knew we were about to become a parent.But for some of us, the dream and reality didn’t match. Our children had issues. Our children had fears. Our children had struggles.Janelle Molony’s idea of motherhood wasn’t what she had imagined. After entering the world of foster care to adopt her child, she was thrown into a whirlwind of issues and struggles she wasn’t anticipating. In her memoir, Un-Adoptable? Faith Beyond Foster Care, she recounts her struggles and triumphs and how ultimately, she was able to move out of the darkness and into the light.I had the pleasure of talking with Janelle on this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast.

PSP 147: Do You Worry if Your Child’s Progress Will Last with their Anxiety or OCD?

Anxiety and OCD can take its toll. It can be exhausting, overwhelming and traumatizing for the whole family. So, when your child starts to make some big improvements, it’s normal to be worried about how long it will last. It’s normal to doubt the progress. You might ask yourself, “Is this for real? Is this the new normal?”Many of us live waiting for the other shoe to drop. I am TOTALLY guilty of this. Luckily, I have a husband who auto-corrects my anxious mind. I also work everyday to re-frame my catastrophic thinking.In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast, I am talking about how to soak up your child’s success without living in the future of What if’s.***This podcast is for informational purposes only and should not be used to replace the guidance of a qualified professional.Visit my website at www.ATparentingSurvival.comInterested in my AT Parenting Community Membership?

PSP 144: Surviving the Holidays with Kids Who Have Anxiety or OCD

I love the holidays. I mean LOVE them! But my three anxious kids can hit some pretty big bumps during the holiday season. In fact, most kids who have anxiety or OCD hit a few bumps during this time of year.There is the chaos. The crowds. And then there are the new foods, constant parties, scratchy clothing, lots of socializing, busy schedule and high hopes for what they’ll get. All that leaves some pretty cranky kids by early January.In this week’s episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast, I was asked to talk about tips to help kids with anxiety or OCD survive the holidays.

PSP 143: How Our Expectations and Stress Impact Our Child with Anxiety or OCD

We often think there is nothing we can do if our child doesn’t work on their anxiety or OCD. I often say, we are in the passenger seat and they are in the driver’s seat. But there is one thing, one HUGE thing we can do. We can work on how our expectations of our child’s success or failure impact the outcome. We can also work on our stress. Because our stress doesn’t live in a bubble, it’s contagious and likes to spread throughout our family.In this episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast, I talk all about how to take the reigns and help your child by making some simple steps to help yourself.Also, just for this week you can catch my 3-part video series called Self-Care for Parents Raising Kids with Anxiety or OCD.
