    PSP 366: Helping a Child with Separation Anxiety

    PSP 366: Helping a Child with Separation Anxiety

    It can be a struggle to know how to help a child with separation anxiety. Separation anxiety impacts the whole family. Often parents jump into doing exposures or challenges around separating, without fully understanding the core fear behind their child’s struggle.
    In this week’s episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast I explore two most common core fears around separation anxiety and what steps parents can take to make some progress.

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

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

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

    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.

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

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

    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.

    PSP 362: The Use of Storytelling in Anxiety and OCD

    PSP 362: The Use of Storytelling in Anxiety and OCD

    It can be hard to help kids navigate anxiety and OCD. Sometimes adding some creative ways to help validate, normalize and build skills to handle anxiety or OCD can be gold! One of my favorite ways to do that is through storytelling.
    Storytelling is a powerful tool. It can help kids understand how anxiety and OCD work. It can help talk about anxiety or OCD without discussing it directly. It can be a creative outlet to process emotions around anxiety and OCD. It can even be used to problem solve and teach tools on how to crush anxiety and OCD.
    In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I’ll discuss the many helpful uses to add the creative approach of storytelling to help kids with anxiety or OCD.

    PSP 361: A Parenting Journey Raising a Child with Emetophobia

    PSP 361: A Parenting Journey Raising a Child with Emetophobia

    Raising a child with Emetophobia, the fear of throw up, can be an isolating experience. It brings with it all sorts of fears. What if they can’t overcome their struggles? What if they can’t go to school? What if they stop eating entirely?
    It is important that parents don’t feel alone on this journey. That is why I was so thrilled when Lauren, a parent in my AT Parenting Community, reached out and asked to be on my podcast. She was so excited about seeing her daughter’s progress that she wanted to share her story with others.
    In this week’s episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast, I sat down with Lauren as we both discussed our experiences as moms to kids with Emetophobia. We explore what worked, what didn’t and how we try to manage our own anxiety around it all.

Loving It! 2 ,

A life line

Natasha is providing a much needed service for parents and kids who are struggling with anxiety and OCD. The floor that falls out when you find your child struggling seems bottomless and it doesn’t seem that there are enough professionals with the knowledge to tackle this very treatable, counterintuitive issue. So grateful to be able to lean on this wealth of knowledge as we learn to navigate this labyrinth. Thank you, Natasha.

Invaluable resources and support

Parenting a child with anxiety and OCD is a challenge for which most of us are not equipped or prepared. The wealth of information, expertise, and empathy that Natasha offers through this podcast, her personal experiences, and her other resources have been an incredible support and help to me and my family. I share her resources with anyone that I think can benefit from them because I have experienced the tremendous help they can be. She is both knowledgeable and realistic which I so appreciate. I cannot recommend her enough!

There aren’t enough stars

Natasha Daniels is an absolute gem. Where to begin with how much this woman’s resources have helped me and our family and countless others who have looked to her for guidance. The variety and wealth of information that she possesses, and the way she implements the dissemination of this information to help families across all areas of anxiety and OCD is just remarkable. Her clinical expertise, coupled with the fact that she is raising children of her own with some of these very same issues—making it very personal to her— makes her an absolute expert on this topic. Her level of commitment to sharing this knowledge and making it accessible in a variety of different forms is what brings it all together and makes her so very helpful. I don’t talk to a single person that mentions child anxiety or OCD without bringing up Natasha‘s name, and referring them to her myriad resources for help. This review is a long time coming because I’ve been using Natasha‘s resources for at least the last four years in a variety of different ways, and here I am coming back to listen to one of her podcasts again today. I thought it well past time that I leave the review that she so deeply deserves. Thank you Natasha!!
