    PSP 161: A Parent’s Story of Raising a Child with Anxiety & OCD During a Pandemic

    Raising a child during a pandemic is a BIG challenge. But when you add anxiety and OCD to the mix, it can be a tall order to handle.


    Every month I have a segment on the AT Parenting Survival Podcast called Member Spotlight. This is where I get to spotlight an AT Parenting Community member’s journey through raising a child with anxiety or OCD.


    This month I talked to Gina. Gina talks about her ongoing journey to help her daughter with anxiety and OCD. She discusses how the pandemic has impacted her daughter and what they are doing as a family to get through it.

    PSP 160: Handling Awkward Situations when Raising Kids with Anxiety or OCD with Evie & Sarah

    PSP 160: Handling Awkward Situations when Raising Kids with Anxiety or OCD with Evie & Sarah

    When you are a parent raising kids with anxiety or OCD you can encounter some awkward situations. Like what do you do when a close friend says ignorant things about your child’s anxiety or OCD. Or how do you handle sleepovers when you know your child might not make it through the night?


    These are just a few of the many questions we dive into on the latest episode of The AT Parenting Survival Podcast. In this episode I invited Evie & Sarah from the podcast Modern Manners for Moms & Dads to help us explore the best way to handle these awkward situations.


    To listen to Evie & Sarah’s podcast Modern Manners for Moms and Dads click here. Also check out their website for updates on their upcoming book with the same title.

    PSP 159: Raising Resilient Kids in a Changing World with Madeline Levine

    PSP 159: Raising Resilient Kids in a Changing World with Madeline Levine

    We are living in an ever-changing world. Our kids are living in an ever-changing world. This might be a scary notion to many, especially considering what is going on in our world right now.


    But what if we had the capability of improving our child’s resilience? What if we could teach our kids to systematically move towards their fears instead of away from them. What if we could teach our kids how to build up their ability to be adaptable, flexible and thrive under challenging conditions.


    In the latest episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast I invited Madeline Levine on to discuss just that. She is the New York Times bestselling author of Teach Your Child Well and The Price of Privilege. In her new book, Ready or Not: Preparing Our Kids to Thrive in an Uncertain and Rapidly Changing World, she talks about the necessity for us to shift gears in how we approach parenting.


    We discussed what skills our children will need to be successful and how we, as parents, can foster those skills.

    PSP 158: How to Help Kids Adapt to a New Normal with the Coronavirus

    PSP 158: How to Help Kids Adapt to a New Normal with the Coronavirus

    Our kids are home indefinitely. Classes are cancelled. Parties, sporting events and extracurriculars - all gone for now. Many of our pantries look like we are waiting for a hurricane to hit.


    So how are we supposed to help our kids not panic?
    How are we supposed to help our kids develop a new routine and not go stir crazy?
    How are we supposed to keep our anxiety in check so it doesn’t rub off on our children?


    In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I explore all these struggles and try to help shine a light in what can feel at times like a deep hole of darkness.

    PSP 157: How to Explain the Coronavirus to Kids with Anxiety or OCD

    PSP 157: How to Explain the Coronavirus to Kids with Anxiety or OCD

    Our kids worry about death. They worry about disease. They worry about germs. And even if they don’t worry about those things now, who’s to say they won’t start? So how are we supposed to explain the Coronavirus to kids with anxiety or OCD?


    That can be tricky. But if your child is school-aged and doesn’t live in a bubble, they’re going to hear lots of talk about it. In fact, it seems like that is the main topic of conversation around the lunch table and at recess.


    In this week’s podcast episode, I talk about how to explain the Coronavirus to kids with anxiety or OCD.


    Also, in this week’s Kids Youtube video I am offering you some help with this difficult topic. I talk to kids and teens directly about what the Coronavirus is and how to not let panic set in.

Very practical and insightful

I love your podcast and all the resources you offer to help children and families with anxiety and OCD issues. Your advice is really practical and insightful. I don’t feel overwhelmed with the information and it’s easy to put in practice.

cat2 dogs ,

Soooo helpful

Natasha, your podcast has been a revelation to me. I have been dealing with my husband’s and my Mr 10 anxiety for since I’ve remember and I always blamed myself for it. You have opened my eyes, your explanations are so incredibly spot on. I can deal with everything so much better equipped with the knowledge you are able to share with us. Thank you, Jo
