See you n ...…
 
I know there are a bazillion awareness weeks and months. Every cause, issue or disease has a color or a month. But I wanted to talk to you about why OCD Awareness Week is so important and how you can take part with even the smallest of gestures. OCD is one of the most misunderstood disorders. Which is sad considering it can be one of the most d ...…

But, there is a tool in the toolbox that many parents haven’t explored – that’s ACT. In this week’s episode on the AT Parenting Survival Podcast, I invited Dr. Patricia Zurita Ona (D ...…

We many think my sweet, anxious child will never do drugs. In fact, how could she? She’s afraid of her own shadow! I am right there with you. But our young, anxious kids often turn into depressed, overwhelmed teens. The last thing we want is for them to self medicate. That’s why talking about drugs when they are young is so important.

It seems like more and more these days we are having to cope with some horrific things.

Dealing with extreme picky eating can be a lonely journey. Barely anyone gets it. People will tell you all sorts of things. Some to lift you up and some to tear you down, but neither wind up being helpful. He won’t starve to death You should force him to eat (as if it was just that easy!)

Hands down the number one fear I deal with as a child therapist is the fear of bad guys. It isn’t surprising. I remember being a child myself, sitting in my bed, blanket up to my neck, wondering not if, but when would I be attacked. The fear is often dealt with platitudes like: I’m right here Who is going to hurt you Nothing has ever happened t ...…

If the brain can imagine it, nightmares can create it. That can be hard for a child whose brain is constantly coming up with the worst-case scenarios for every situation. And when a child with nightmares, especially an anxious child, has them often – they can start to fear sleep altogether. So how do you help your child with nightmares? Well, w ...…

We all do many things without a conscious thought. Our heart beats. Our food is digested. Our breath goes in and then goes out. Our eyes lids go up and then they go down.

“We don’t see it, he’s great for us.” “Nope, we don’t have any issues with her.” “Anxiety? Are you sure?” “OCD? I never see him wash his hands.” (eye roll to that one) “He is a perfect angel when he is with me.” Ugh. These types of comments can make you doubt all that you know and see. Is it me?

The kids are huddled in the corner of the room. It is dark. It is quiet. They are told not to talk. They are told to hide behind objects and lock the classroom door. Some kids are shaking.

We all see anxiety differently. We bring our own baggage, or own history and our own issues along for the ride. Often moms and dads see anxiety differently.

When we ask our kids to face their fears, it can be like asking them to jump off a cliff. Swim with sharks. Jump out of an airplane. All of which I know I would never want to do. That is why offering good incentives is key when trying to get kids to work on anxiety or OCD. I’ve been asked often, what are good incentives? How do you use incentiv ...…
