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.

PSP 278: Helping Kids with OCD Know They are Not Alone

Having OCD can be a lonely experience. Kids can feel like there is no one else out there who gets their struggles. And really, who can blame them? The media (and even worse social media) often spend their time talking about OCD like it’s a meme or an adjective.But feeling alone does more than impact the mood and self-esteem. It can stand in the way of progress and impact our child’s long term success.In this week’s episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk about why it’s SO important to help kids with OCD not feel alone - and how we can go about doing that!Here are some resources I discuss during the episode:🌸 BooksWhat to Do When Your Brain Gets StuckPractice Being BraveThe ACT Workbook for Teens with OCDStuff That’s Loud (for Teens)The OCD Workbook for TeensEverything is an Emergency (older teens)🌸 Youtube channel🌸 Support GroupsIOCDFAT Parenting Community (support group meetings included in membership)🌸 ClassesCrush OCD for Kids & TeensWaitlist of Crush OCD Course for Kids & Teens❤️ Learn more about the AT Parenting Community membership here.***This podcast episode is sponsored by NOCD.

PSP 277: Learning How to Let Go of Perceived Control

It is hard not to want to control our child’s anxiety or OCD journey. It is hard not to have expectations for how it should turn out. It’s human nature to want to do everything in our power to help our kids.But sometimes the best thing we can do for ourselves and our children is to recognize what areas we do not control. Sometimes we can make the most progress when we learn to let go of expectations and perceived control. In this latest episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast I dive into our perceptions of control and explore the concept of acceptance and letting go.P.S: I’m cooking up an OCD online, on-demand class just for kids and teens to teach them those life long skills to handle those waves!
