PSP 115: Helping Kids with Moral OCD
Hearing your child confess thoughts that do not make sense can be heartbreaking. Moral OCD is one of the most confusing OCD themes a parent, and for that matter, a child, can experience. Kids with Moral OCD are bombarded with thoughts. What if I am a bad person? What if I did something bad? What if I do something bad?   They can come at you with a barrage of questions that seem to never end.   Do you think it is bad if I… I had this thought that… What if I…   The need for reassurance and confessing is never ending.   In this week’s podcast episode I am going to dive into the counterintuitive approach that helps kids with Moral OCD.   *** To enroll in my new online mini-course, How to Teach Kids to Crush Moral OCD, go to http://anxioustoddlers.teachable.com/p/moral-ocd   Interested in my AT Parenting Community Membership?

PSP 114: Supporting Dads Raising Anxious Kids with Larry Hagner
No one signs up for struggles. We all have our vision of what parenting will be. It usually does not involve a child with panic, fear and dread. It can be hard to pivot and alter your parental course. It can also be a challenge to pivot with a partner. Raising anxious kids is often counterintuitive. Many parents find they are not on the same page. Anxiety is rough on kids, but it can also be rough on marriages.   I invited Larry Hagner from The Dad Edge Podcast to offer a perspective I don’t often talk about. The perspective of dads. What is it like to be a father raising a child with struggles? How can partners align without pointing fingers and being hurtful?   Larry offers his insightful, humble perspective. He not only teaches us how to become better parents, he teaches us how to become better human beings. I thoroughly enjoyed my talk with him, and I know you will too. *** Learn more about Larry Hagner's awesome work at www.Thegooddadproject.com   Interested in my AT Parenting Community Membership?

PSP 113: Dealing with Your Own Anxiety Can Help You Become a Better Parent
I didn’t know the level of my anxiety until I brought little people into my world. It seemed like my anxiety just couldn’t hide under the weight of parental stress. That happens to many of us. We strive to become a better parent and we begin to realize that it is actually our own anxiety that is holding us back.   In this week’s podcast episode I talk about how tackling our own anxiety, not only helps us – but it can help our kids as well.   *** Interested in my AT Parenting Community Membership?

PSP 112: Helping Your Sensitive Child Handle Mean People
I love my empathetic, kindhearted and intuitive little girl. She is the sparkle in everyone’s life. That is until my pretty flower wilts at the slightest tone, stare or comment that has a hint of meanness behind it. My sensitive child crumbles when the world is mean around her. Let’s not even talk about when the rudeness is directed at her.   Many of us are raising a sensitive child. A sensitive child comes with many wonderful gifts. Gifts I wouldn’t change for the world. But they also come in a fragile package.   This week on the AT Parenting Survival Podcast, I am talking about how to take our fragile flowers and firm up their stem.  *** Interested in my AT Parenting Community Membership?

PSP 111: Want Your Kids to Talk to You? Why Your Reaction Matters.
“He just won’t talk to me!” I often hear. Or “I try to ask her questions, but she just gives me one-word responses.” So how do you get your kids to talk to you?   Often, we inadvertently shutdown communication with our kids without even knowing it.   One of the perks of being a child therapist is I get an inside view of what is going on. Many times, kids will tell me they want to open up to their parents, but they don’t like the reactions they get.   So, what are these reactions – and how can we stop giving them?   In this week’s podcast I highlight some of the reactions we often give our kids and talk about why it shuts down communication. I also talk about what to do instead.   So, if you have wanted your kids to talk to you, but you don’t know where to start – this episode is for you!   *** Interested in my AT Parenting Community Membership?

PSP 110: Helping a Child with Anxiety and ADHD with Angela Pruess
Having a child with anxiety can be rough, but having a child with anxiety and ADHD can be complete parental overload!   Both anxiety and ADHD have their own challenges – and together they can be a force to be reckoned with.   That is why I have invited the knowledgeable and ever-helpful, Angela Pruess from the site Parents with Confidence: https://parentswithconfidence.com/. Angela and I are almost mirror images of each other. She is a mother to three kids, two of whom have some extra needs (like mine)! She is also a Licensed Family Therapist who gets it on a professional and personal level.   She offered some great insight and tips on how to parent kids who have both of ADHD/ADD and anxiety. *** Interested in my AT Parenting Community Membership?

PSP 109: Understanding What Your Child’s Difficult Behaviors Might be Telling You with Dayna Abraham
In my home I have become somewhat of a detective. When my kids are angry, impulsive, hostile or defiant – there is also some pretty big anxiety or OCD hiding underneath. I have learned how to decode my child’s difficult behaviors in order to get to the heart of the matter.   I have learned this the hard way.   I have bumped heads. Gotten into power struggles. Stooped to their level.   But I’ve realized time and time again – that approach not only makes me feel bad, it’s simply not effective.   That is why I love what Dayna from Lemon Lime Adventures and Calm the Chaos teaches!   In her framework she teaches how to go beyond the outward behaviors. She talks about how to figure out what your child is communicating. And how to connect, even during those ugliest moments.   Sign up for this free online workshop here: www.Bit.ly/Calmthechaos    She runs a free Calm the Chaos Workshop outlining some of the main points from her program. It is going on just this week. To catch it go here. She only does them a few times a year! I created a Facebook study group to go along with her workshop. Join us here and take part in some our challenges and prizes. https://www.facebook.com/groups/329106417649883/   Also, I invited her onto the podcast to have a chat about these behaviors and to offer us some tips on how to shift our mindset and bring calm to our homes. Wouldn’t that be nice!   *** Sign up for the Calm the Chaos Workshop here: www.Bit.ly/Calmthechaos   Interested in my AT Parenting Community Membership?

PSP 107: The Ugly Feelings Most of Us Secretly Experience as Parents
I am not sure when we, collectively as a society, decided that parents aren’t allowed to have ugly feelings. You know the feelings I’m talking about.  The guilt. The annoyance. The middle of the night panic.   The darker one’s too….  When you have fleeting feelings of not liking your child. When you have days where you want to get in your car and not come back. As parents we all have feelings we don’t like to talk about, let alone admit.  In this week’s podcast episode, I am airing out those ugly thoughts. Bringing them to the surface. Letting you know, it’s okay and talking about what to do with them. *** Interested in my AT Parenting Community Membership?

PSP 106: The Fear of Throwing Up | Do's & Don't in Parenting
Believe it or not, the most common anxiety issue I deal with in my therapy practice is the fear of throwing up. The formal name, Emetophobia, quietly paralyzes so many of our kids. The fear of throwing up gets kids sucked into a vicious cycle. I worry I’m going to be sick… And the worry makes me feel sick.  So I worry some more.  How do you help your child get off this hamster wheel of torture? Surprisingly it is the opposite of what most parents think.  In this latest episode of The AT Parenting Survival Podcast I am sharing what to do and what not to do to help your child through Emetophobia. *** Interested in my AT Parenting Community Membership?
