Many parents who are raising children with both Autism and OCD find themselves in a no man’s land of sorts. Professionals treating Autism don’t always understand OCD and those treating OCD don’t always understand Autism. Ugh. What a struggle.That is why talking to Dr. Rebecca Sachs is like talking to a rare unicorn. 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.

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.

OCD is scary enough, but when it starves your child it is alarming. That is how it feels when OCD goes for the one thing your child can’t live without - food. In this episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk about ARFID and OCD. ARFID stands for Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder and OCD likes to partner with it. I open up about my son’s ongoing struggle with restrictive eating, our journey and what steps we have taken to help him.This podcast episode is sponsored by NOCD.

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.

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.

None of us signed up to raise a child with anxiety or OCD. It wasn’t what we dreamed of when we poured over all the pregnancy and parenting books. And yet, here we all are, trying to not only survive, but thrive with our kids and their struggles.What happens when compassion runs dry? What happens when we feel resentful or angry at our kids or the situation?You are not alone if you’ve experienced those feelings. In fact, to be real, most of us have at one point or another.In this episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk about what parental compassion fatigue is, what the symptoms are and how we can navigate through it.To read the article by Our Small Hours, Can Moms Get Compassion Fatigue, click here.This podcast episode is sponsored by NOCD.

Anxiety and OCD come in many flavors. Often we even name these flavors with various titles like symmetry OCD, Harm OCD, Separation Anxiety, Emetophobia etc. Does it really matter what theme of anxiety or OCD my child has?Yes and no. There are pitfalls to wearing blinders and only focusing on your child’s anxiety or OCD theme. However there are also incredible benefits to understanding the various ways anxiety and OCD can show up.In this episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast I will talk about the good, the bad and the ugly related to understanding your child’ anxiety and OCD themes and how to use them to catapult your child’s progress.To get a FREE copy of the PDF: 15 of the Most Common But Often Missed OCD Themes in Children and Teens text the word: OCDPDF to the number 44222 or go here: https://anxioustoddlers.lpages.co/ocd-pdfThis podcast episode is sponsored by NOCD.

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.

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.

Many kids and even adults are scared of bugs. But for some of our kids it goes way beyond that. Perhaps they won’t go outside, won’t go to the park or won’t go swimming because of their fear of insects. Maybe they are worried about taking a shower or a bath or even going to the bathroom.What are you supposed to do to help your child move through such a debilitating fear of bugs?In this episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk about some of the approaches I take when trying to help a child with their fear of bugs.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This is a wonderful article. I can see that you have done a lot of research and your subject knowledge is good and impressive. This is Nitin, I also like to write for an education blog https://www.cleariitmedical.com/ - This is an online blog for students who want to prepare for India's most difficult entrance exams - IIT JEE and NEET This is a free blog and provide free study material, quiz and notes to those who can't afford to pay hefty fees of coaching institutes. I write free of cost for the good cause. I know you must be busy with your work but if you could take out some time from your busy schedule and have a look at it. I saw a good collection of articles. If you only write a few words about this blog then it can help a lot of students out there. Thanks!"

We really loved this episode. My 8 year old has emetephobia and she loved hearing tips and ideas from someone her own age. It was nice to know someone else the same age had all the same thoughts and feelings.

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.
