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.

PSP 273 Are You Remembering Your Own Mental Health?

PSP: 271 Fighting OCD is Often Not What Kids Think

You’ll often hear the word “fight your OCD.” In fact, one of my favorite books about OCD is called Talking Back to OCD, by John March. But sometimes kids misunderstand what this means (and parents too). When we talk about fighting OCD we are usually talking about a counterintuitive way to push back. A way to approach OCD that may not seem like traditional “fighting” at all.In this week’s podcast I talk about the counterintuitive way to “fight” OCD and why we need to clarify this with our kids.I’m cooking up an OCD online, on-demand class just for kids and teens!
