PSP 340: The Balance Between Rescuing and Empowering Our Kids

Most of us want to raise healthy, resilient, empowered adults, but how do we get there? Our kids don’t magically turn independent and empowered once they pass the threshold of adulthood.


The magic is in finding the sweet spot between rescuing and empowering our kids on  a daily basis. Even if we hit that sweet spot half the time, we’ll be building those skills to help our kids feel empowered.


In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I explore the continuum of rescuing to tough love parenting. I discuss how to move from doing it for our kids, to coaching, to sitting on the sidelines cheerleading.

  • PSP 351: How to Help Anxious Kids through Stories and Books

    41:13

  • PSP 350: Is it Game Over if Your Child Doesn’t Want to Work on Anxiety or OCD?

    41:59

  • PSP 349: Do you Feel Isolated Trying to Help Your Child’s Anxiety or OCD?

    43:45
    Raising a child with anxiety or OCD can be a very lonely experience. It can make us feel removed from our friends and family. It can even put a wedge between partners. The more isolated you feel on this journey, the harder it is to help your child. Why? Because your level of support is directly tied to your child’s long term progress.In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast we talk about the struggles of feeling alone and isolated and some actionable steps to get that additional support.🌸 Join my FREE self-care series going on this week!

  • PSP 348: Does Your Child’s Anxiety or OCD Trigger Your Childhood Wounds?

    39:34
    Dealing with our child’s anxiety or OCD is taxing enough, but sometimes there is another layer of stress. Often our child’s struggles can trigger something deep within us. A childhood wound, a flashback, a remnant of something that has remained dormant within us.When these old wounds are triggered we might have an exaggerated response to our child’s struggles or behaviors. Our past and present might get blurred and anger or fear can bubble up to the surface.In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I explore how to spot our childhood wounds and how to separate our past from our present.🌸 Join my FREE self-care series starting this week!
