PSP 365: Why Does My Child’s Anxiety or OCD Show Up More For ME?!

One of the biggest questions I get from parents is, “Why does my child’s anxiety or OCD show up more for me?” It can be a source of contention when one parent sees all the struggles and the other parent sees nothing.


It can cause people to finger point and waste unnecessary energy playing the blame game.

 

The truth is…that is the norm. 


In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I’ll explore why kids tend to show their anxiety or OCD more to one parent than to anyone else and what we can do about it.

  • PSP 368: Why OCD Can Get Worse with the Wrong Therapist

    55:03
    When you bring your child to a cardiologist, you expect they know all the evidence based treatment interventions to help your child. When you bring them to an endocrinologist you assume they are an expert in all things endocrinology.But sadly you cannot assume the same when seeing a mental health therapist. The truth is not all therapists are properly trained and informed on how to assess, diagnose and treat OCD.That means we, as parents, have to have enough knowledge to spot a helpful versus a harmful therapist. We have to know what evidenced based approaches work and why. We have to ask the right questions to know that we are in the right place.🌸 Get in-depth support to help your child with OCD in my online courses at AT Parenting Survival School.***This podcast episode is sponsored by NOCD.

  • PSP 364: How Our Parenting Styles Impact the Anxiety & OCD Journey

    40:17
    Our parenting style directly impacts how we approach our child’s anxiety or OCD. How do you feel about setting boundaries? What emotions do you feel when your child is in distress? How do you feel when you pull back your accommodations around anxiety or OCD?Our parenting style plays a role in these questions. Your parenting style wasn’t developed out of thin air. We are a mix of our childhood experiences, our feelings around how we were parented and our hopes for our own kids.In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I help you take a deeper dive into your parenting style, where it came from and how it plays a role in your child’s anxiety or OCD journey.🌸 Get in home support with my new book, Crushing OCD Workbook for Kids***This podcast episode is sponsored by NOCD.

  • PSP 363: The Importance of Finding the Right Therapy for OCD | One Family’s Journey

    56:58
    The wrong therapist can wreak havoc on a children’s OCD. That is why it is so important for parents to understand what are evidenced-based approaches specifically for OCD. It is also key to have the skills to decipher a qualified therapist from a non-qualified therapist. When Eve started having intrusive thoughts, she privately went to google to figure out what was going on. Fortunately for Eve she stumbled upon the right sites that helped her understand her thoughts were OCD. Many families aren’t so lucky, especially when it involves OCD themes like sexual orientation or harm to self or others.Even though Eve properly identified her struggles as OCD, it still took several therapists to find a qualified one that would help her make progress. Her father wasn’t so lucky. He had the same OCD themes in college and had little success from a general therapist, never knowing it was OCD until his daughter had the same theme.In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk to Eve and her father Jon, as they share their struggles, their journey to find the right therapist and their bond through it all.🌸 Want in-depth, ongoing support?
