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.

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.

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.

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. I also talk about how to not get so lost in the weeds that you aren’t able to find your way out.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.

Not all therapy is the same. Not all therapists are the same. And when it comes to anxiety and OCD you really want to get it right the first time.

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.

Most teens don’t want people to tell them what to do, especially their parents. So what are parents supposed to do when they desperately want to help their teen with OCD? Sometimes that can be tricky. In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast, I invited Lisa Coyne, the co-author of the book, Stuff That’s Loud and the founder and senior clinical consultant of the McLean OCD Institute for Children and Adolescents. She offers us some great guidance and a new perspective on how to help our teens through their OCD struggles. To get the book, Stuff That’s Loud click here: https://amzn.to/33N2BUP.

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.

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.

It can get pretty overwhelming parenting a child with anxiety or OCD. But this is a marathon not a sprint and burn out isn’t an option. Overwhelm is an issue we all deal with throughout this journey. It is something that can creep up on you without any warning. So how do we as parents dial down our overwhelm?In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk about the common reasons why we get overwhelmed and what to do about it.Do you want me to be your $5 mini-coach?

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!

The pandemic has turned much of our world upside down. And now entering into the next school year, everything is different for our kids. If you are entering the new world of online schooling, you are not alone. Many of us are going into uncharted territory this school year.That is why I brought in one of my favorite people to discuss all things behavior – Wendy Bertagnole from the Exceptional Parenting Podcast. She offers such great insight and wisdom in how to approach our children’s struggles and behaviors.In this episode Wendy offers some guidance on how to look beyond behaviors to understand what the behavior is trying to tell us. I am starting my mini-coaching episodes in a few weeks!

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?

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?

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.

There is one thing for sure, next school year is completely uncertain. Will kids go back to school? Will they wear masks? Will school be online or in person? There are more questions than answers when we look ahead.So how do you help an anxious child who craves consistency and stability when reality is anything but that right now? We can’t provide complete comfort, but there are a few things we can do to mitigate some of the struggle.In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast, I talk about some potential struggles, and some approaches to take to help your anxious kids.***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?

“He’s just shy, he’ll grow out of it.” That’s what many parents hear when they voice their concerns about a child with undiagnosed Selective Mutism. Selective Mutism is often missed or completely misunderstood. The sad part is with early treatment, children with Selective Mutism can make great progress.That is why I brought on Anna Biavati-Smith, a Speech and Language Therapist as well as one of UK’s top leading Selective mutism specialists onto the podcast. She discusses not only what Selective Mutism is, but the many different approaches parents can take to help their child.To learn more about Anna’s work visit her website at: https://www.edinburgh-speech-therapy-wordsteps.co.uk You can also subscribe to her Youtube channel at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCB7TlKdKZAWIGsU-2mIerAThis 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?

My kiddo goes to a school designed to support kids with autism and other major mental health and behavioral challenges. They have created a room for them where they can go to be mask free for a few minutes when they need to decompress. They are also building in mask breaks throughout the day with outside activities with extra social distancing. This could be an easy IEP accommodation for kids in a regular school too.

I have found myself really obsessed with your podcasts i am 14 in and am tempted to restart to start taking notes. I have one question so far, could there be a correlation between autism and anxiety? To me, i feel like they may go hand in hand because of all of the other related issues. Would love to discuss this topic.

hello, I am also dealing with my son's anxiety attack. My some is 10 yrs old, and I am running out of ideas on how to help him with whatever he is going through. Can anyone be of help before I can take him to the child therapist? My husband and I are willing to try anything that could help us work with this problem.

I am so glad I found your podcast. I think my 6 year Olds core fear of his anxiety is seperation. He really gets upset, overloaded when it comes to school, his class is very load and unstructured. He also worries and is anxious about me dying and leaving him. please give me some tips on how to help and wjere to start. He conunicates very little to me, I've used your, "what's the worst thing" Concept and he has a hard time explaining and changes his answeres constantly. so I don't know what to do to ease and help his anxiety. The school really won't work with us, so we are home schooling but I need ideas still on how to work on his anxieties, thank you

I really like the concept of life lessons you discussed with your daughter. I'll be using that with my six year old as I think framing it that way will help her as it did your daughter.
