    PSP 209: Helping Anxious Kids Change Teachers or Therapists

    PSP 209: Helping Anxious Kids Change Teachers or Therapists

    Change is hard on most kids, but it can be especially hard on anxious kids. So what happens when they have to change their teacher or therapist? It can be rough, especially if they were well bonded to the teacher or therapist before the change.
    Change offers our kids the ability to practice flexibility and can build their adaptation skills. The question is how to do that - especially when they are devastated by the loss.
    In this episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast, I talk about some ways to discuss this change with your child to help them transition successfully to a new teacher or therapist.

    PSP 207: How to Help Kids Who are Scared of Bugs

    PSP 207: How to Help Kids Who are Scared of Bugs

    Many kids and even adults are scared of bugs. But for some of our kids it goes way beyond that. Perhaps they won’t go outside, won’t go to the park or won’t go swimming because of their fear of insects. Maybe they are worried about taking a shower or a bath or even going to the bathroom.
    What are you supposed to do to help your child move through such a debilitating fear of bugs?
    In this episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk about some of the approaches I take when trying to help a child with their fear of bugs. Hopefully it can help your kids too!

    PSP 206: How Self-Esteem Plays a Role in Kids with Anxiety or OCD

    PSP 206: How Self-Esteem Plays a Role in Kids with Anxiety or OCD

    Anxiety and OCD will often take a swing at our child’s self-esteem. It can do that with the anxious or intrusive thoughts it bombards them with. It can do that by paralyzing them with fear, as they watch their peers not struggle. 
    It can also be present alongside anxiety or OCD. It can help pick their anxiety or OCD themes. Social anxiety, perfectionism and Moral OCD all use self-esteem in their arsenal of weapons. 
    In this podcast, I explore how self-esteem dances with anxiety and OCD. I will highlight what areas to look into and talk about how focusing on your child’s self-esteem will in turn help their battle with anxiety and OCD.

    PSP 205: Helping Kids with Anxiety or OCD Cope with Grief or Trauma

    PSP 205: Helping Kids with Anxiety or OCD Cope with Grief or Trauma

    It’s hard enough to have anxiety or OCD, but what happens when your child is hit with grief or trauma? It can feel like a muddy, chaotic mess. 
    Unfortunately life happens and so do tragedies. Our kids are not immune to life happening to them, I wish they were. 
    Anxiety and OCD are opportunistic. It will feed off the grief and trauma by trying to grow new themes and new compulsions.
    Our family has suffered an unthinkable and sudden loss. My children are grieving the loss of their father. That alone would be an insurmountable feat. But they are also quietly fighting off another more subtle battle. The battle of an opportunistic disorder that thrives in chaos and tries to piggyback on any of life’s struggles. 
    In this episode I talk about how to keep your head above water, while trying to make sure that your child’s anxiety or OCD doesn’t gain momentum.

    PSP 204: Update on Tragedy that has Devastated Our Family

    PSP 204: Update on Tragedy that has Devastated Our Family

    For those of you that aren’t aware, my husband died suddenly of a blood clot ten days after a minor Achilles surgery. The grief has been all consuming for me and my three children. I know my podcast, youtube channel, social media posts and emails have abruptly stopped almost a month ago and I didn’t have the energy to even explain why.
    I was touched by all the outpouring of love from around the world from those that heard about my loss. I wanted to thank everyone who reached out, mailed me cards and donated to the gofundme account that circulated FB. The love was definitely felt from all directions and was so appreciated.
    After he died I decided to close my practice, as my hours were only evenings and weekends, the time my kids will need me the most. 
    My online resources, classes and AT Parenting Community membership will be my sole focus moving forward. Currently I plan on returning to my online work on April 1st. 
    I made this video to be played at my husband’s funeral more for his co-workers than for me. Even though it is raw and vulnerable I was encouraged to share it more broadly and I decided to do so in the hopes it could impact even one more person to live a life full of love and connection. 
    Click here to watch it:
    https://vimeo.com/516303126/7ee978deb7
    To help grieving children deal with the loss of their parent, you can donate in honor of Jimmie Daniels at https://billysplace.me. They have been a complete godsend for our family during this time.
    We are still grieving, so please accept my apologies for not commenting or responding if you reach out. I am going to be staying off social media until I return on April 1st.

Best Resource for Parenting Kids with OCD & Anxiety

This excellent podcast teaches you to recognize OCD & anxiety in kids & teens...and learn how to best support them. Right now. Practical, expert advice from a therapist who’s also parenting.

Wow! Thank you for sharing so much OCD knowledge with parents!

cloluk ,

Grateful

I am so grateful for you Natasha! You speak in a way that I can understand what my son is going thru. It’s been an eye opener since I discovered you and now I can at least make more informed decisions as to his treatment options and the do’s and dont’s of Ocd. Thank you for making me a better mom, not only for my son but for my other kids as well because we are all in this together!

*KgUs* ,

Thankful

Natasha is so easy to listen to. This is an amazing way to put life with an anxious child into perspective and re-ground us as parents. It makes me feel so understood and validates every fear and struggle I have as a parent. Even if you don’t have a child diagnosed with anxiety or OCD, this is a must listen for all parents!
