PSP: 231: Helping Our Kids with Anxiety or OCD by Leaning into Acceptance

It is hard to accept that our child has anxiety or OCD. It is even harder to accept the pain, discomfort and struggle they have to go through each day. But often we spend so much energy trying to swim upstream we get lost in the struggle. 


In this week’s episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk about the role acceptance can play not only in our lives, but in the lives of our children.

PSP: 262 The Wait-and-See Approach to Anxiety or OCD

How often do we hear from family, friends and even doctors that we should “wait and see” if it gets worse. We should wait and see if the anxiety or OCD grows bigger.

Anxious kids often have a hard time trying new things. This might impact what they’ll eat, what activities they’ll try or how they feel about going to new places. It can permeate their lives in a way that limits their experiences and holds them back.When we cater to these fears we can unintentionally grow them bigger. But when we force our kids to try new things we can them shut down.So what are parents supposed to do?The key is to help our kids build skills so they can not only tolerate new experiences, but eventually enjoy them too!In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I invited Dawn Huebner back to the show to discuss ways we can help our kids build these skills.In Dr. Dawn’s book, Facing Mighty Fears About Trying New Things, she teaches kids 6-10 years old how to bravely face new things.To get 15% off any of Dr. Dawn’s Mini Books About Mighty Fears, including this one, use the coupon code MIGHTYFEARS15 by June 30th, 2022 on the publisher’s website here.FREE VIDEO SERIES: Starting May 12th, 2022Join me for my FREE video series, Survival Tools for Parents Raising Kids with Anxiety or OCD.
