PSP 244 How to Help Our Kids Handle Intrusive Thoughts

It is hard to watch your child being bombarded with intrusive thoughts day and night. No parent wants to see their child suffer, but how are they supposed to help their kids?


Unfortunately when it comes to OCD, the answer is often counterintuitive. 


In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I explore the nature of intrusive thoughts and the best ways parents can help their kids work through them.

PSP: 267 Helping Kids with Emetophobia | The Fear of Throwing Up with Dawn Huebner

It might surprise some people that the fear of throwing up, Emetophobia, is one of the most common anxiety and OCD themes. For those of us raising a child with it, it isn’t surprising at all!Sometimes this fear is triggered by an event or experience, but often it is the imagination alone that causes this immobilizing concern.We all throw up and many of us see others throw up, but we are able to move past it without too much residual impact.When you have Emetophobia you get stuck. Stuck worrying that you might get sick. Stuck worrying that others around you might get sick. Stuck analyzing, avoiding and ruminating. A vicious cycle that can keep people from living a full life.I invited Dr. Dawn Huebner to the AT Parenting Survival Podcast to discuss how we can help our kids work through Emetophobia. In her book, Facing Mighty Fears about Throwing Up (Dr. Dawn's Mini Books about Mighty Fears), she teaches kids ages 6-10 years old skills to overcome these struggles.Dr. Dawn’s other Mini Books about Mighty Fears:Facing Mighty Fears About Trying New ThingsFacing Mighty Fears About HealthFacing Mighty Fears About Animals***This podcast episode is sponsored by NOCD.

PSP: 266 How to Turn Our Child’s “Failures” into Wins

We will all fall short sometimes and so will our children with anxiety or OCD. They will avoid, they will crumble, they will give in to their anxiety or OCD. That is all par for the course.More often than not they will view these situations as “failures.” They might beat themselves up or use the experience as evidence that they can’t do it again.So how do we approach our child who couldn’t make it, couldn’t do it, couldn’t get through it? There is learning and growth in everything we do, including our perceived failures.In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk about how to help our kids with these stumbles and how to turn those situations into a learning opportunity for growth.Has your child or teen done an exposure they regret? Here is a YouTube video to help them with that.***This podcast episode is sponsored by NOCD. NOCD provides online OCD therapy in the US, UK, Australia and Canada.
