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! You can learn more by adding your name to the waitlist:
