When we ask our kids to face their fears, it can be like asking them to jump off a cliff. Swim with sharks. Jump out of an airplane. All of which I know I would never want to do. That is why offering good incentives is key when trying to get kids to work on anxiety or OCD.   I’ve been asked often, what are good incentives? How do you use incentives? And will they just do it for the carrot in front of them!   In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast episode, we are talking all about how to use prizes, rewards, incentives and motivators.  *** Interested in my AT Parenting Community Membership?

They dig their heels in. They refuse to go. They refuse to eat. They refuse to move. Oppositional behavior in a child with OCD or anxiety can be all consuming.   So, what are you supposed to do?   Well for starters, treating it as typical oppositional behavior won’t work. Either will typical parenting approaches.   When a child with OCD or anxiety is being difficult, their opposition is vastly different than the typical oppositional kid.   In this week’s podcast episode, I dive into the oppositional behavior so many of us are dealing with when it comes to parenting kids with OCD or anxiety. *** To enroll in my new online, on-demand class, Handling Difficult Behavior in Kids with Anxiety or OCD, go to www.bit.ly/atbehavior.
Anxiety or OCD can make you feel like you house has been hijacked. It can make you feel like your home is not your own. Having a child with anxiety or OCD can often mean, having a controlling child. Kids with anxiety or OCD can be controlling for many reasons. In this week’s podcast episode, I go over the reasons why a child feels the need to exert control, and what to do about it.    To get on the waitlist for the Difficult Behavior Class text ATBEHAVIOR to 44222.

People will try to treat OCD with many different approaches. Treatment of OCD can include the use of talk therapy, play therapy, biofeedback or EMDR. But the truth of the matter is, OCD will not improve significantly without ERP, Exposure Response Prevention. So what is ERP and how does it work? I invited Dr. Martin Hsia, the Clinical Director at the Cognitive Behavior Therapy Center of Southern California, to sit down with me to have a chat all about ERP in kids.

Have you ever wondered what your child with OCD is going through? What their life is like growing up with OCD?   I had the pleasure of talking to John Tessitore, the founder of the JCK Foundation. He was willing to get raw with me and share some personal details of what life was like growing up with thoughts he hid from the outside world.   He paints a picture of what it can feel like to think you are all alone and how he found hope and inspiration when his brother’s friend took him under his wing and shared that he, as well, had OCD.   John has made it his mission to let others like him know that they are not alone. He created the JCK Foundation to spread knowledge and offer support to people with mental illness. The JCK Foundation offers programs that go into high schools and colleges to speak to students about mental illness and to offer them support and hope.   If you know of a school that would benefit from JCK Foundation’s program click here.

Selective Mutism can hide behind labels like “shy” and often gets missed by parents, educators and even therapists. I had the pleasure of talking to Patsy Butterworth, a State Coordinator for Selective Mutism.org and a mom to a child with Selective Mutism. Patsy has been a huge advocate for her son through his journey. She now supports other parents, connecting them to resources and spreading knowledge about Selective Mutism.  In my interview with Patsy, she helps us understand what Selective Mutism is and what it is not. She also talks about how to advocate for your child, get a proper diagnosis and how parents can help their child with Selective Mutism.

She suffered silently. She suffered often. Her parents didn’t understand her pain. She didn’t understand her pain. So it often goes. Growing up with separation anxiety and Panic Disorder can be a disorienting, overwhelming and lonely experience. Amanda Stern, the author of Little Panic, shares not only her story, but the story of so many anxious children growing up in a world that swallows them up whole. I had the privilege of chatting with Amanda about her life growing up with separation anxiety and panic. She offered her insight into how parents can help their anxious kids, and pitfalls should be avoided. Every parent raising an anxious child should read her story and learn what anxiety feels like, from the inside out.   To learn more about Amanda Stern go to www.amandastern.com.

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?

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?
