I am having the WORST day ever! Fast forward two hours. I am having the BEST day ever! It is enough to give anyone whiplash. Seriously.

Many kids with anxiety and OCD have all or nothing thinking. They see things as black or white and there is no grey to be found.
This can be exhausting on many levels. First, it is sad to see your child ride the rollercoaster of emotions all day long. Second, it is frustrating to parent a child who has such a skewed view of life. Right?
So where to start?
[scroll below to listen to my podcast episode all about this]
As a mom to a couple of all or nothing kids, I get this on a personal level. I want the world to be full of rainbows and butterflies, but my kids often see rain clouds and moths.
 
Here’s what helps at my house and what I tell families in my therapy practice. Maybe it will help your family as well.

Here are some tips on how to keep help your child through the summer (and keep your sanity). The stress of school is finally over! No more homework battles, no more school refusal!

Old What Ifs take hold. <br /> <br /> When there are no distractions anxiety and OCD can take center stage. So how can you save their summer and your sanity?<br /> <br /> Here are a few tips:<br /> <br /> Kids with Anxiety & OCD Need Structure<br /> <br /> Unstructured down time can be overwhelming for kids with anxiety and OCD. So even if you have nothing planned, make some structure out of your day.<br /> <br /> Have a calendar where everyone can see it.<br /> <br /> If your child is going to camp and there is a schedule – hang it up or post it on the calendar. The more information an anxious child has, the better.<br /> <br /> Structure your day with anchors.<br /> <br /> Put some structure to your blob of a day. Have one morning activity and/or one afternoon activity. The activities can be divided by meals. Give your child a timeframe for when each activity will start or anchor it around a meal (e.g. after lunch we’ll do our activity). <br /> <br /> Put a timeframe on your activity if there isn’t one built in. Anxious kids do well when they know what to expect.<br /> <br /> Make a list of activities with your kids and have them pick the activities each week. Get creative. Activities don’t have to cost a lot of money.<br /> <br /> Don’t Let Your Kids Turn into Vampires!<br /> <br /> It is easy to get relaxed in the summer. Required bedtimes and restrictions on electronics can sometimes get thrown out the window. But, you don’t want your kids to turn into vampires – sleeping during the day and staying up late into the night.<br /> <br /> Have a summer bedtime.<br /> <br /> It doesn’t have to be as early as during the school year, but structure is still good for anxious kids. When kids get less sleep, they are less able to fight off anxiety or OCD.<br /> <br /> Now is the Time to Fight Anxiety and OCD<br /> <br /> Often parents feel like summer is a time to take a break on everything…including a child’s anxiety or OCD. They will often say their child is in need of a break or there is nothing to work on in the summer. <br /> <br /> Neither are accurate.<br /> <br /> The summer is a great time to work on anxiety and OCD. In fact, it is an important thing to do. You want to take advantage of the free time you have in the summer. With homework and after school activities out of the way, you should have more time to tackle your child’s issues.<br /> <br /> Don’t know where to start? Take one of my online classes and learn how to build your child’s skills to fight anxiety, social anxiety or OCD.<br /> <br /> If your child does not work on their issues over the summer, their struggles will be even worse when they are scheduled to go back to school. <br /> <br /> Even if you think school is the main struggle. You can still work on issues over the summer. One of the most effective therapy approaches is ERP, Exposure Response Prevention. You can learn more about that by clicking here.<br /> <br /> You want to get to your child’s core fear. You can learn more about that here. You can work on the core fear even when your child is not in school. <br /> <br /> Worried about social criticism? Take my social anxiety class or do social anxiety challenges over the summer.<br /> <br /> Do you fear throwing up? Do exposures (ERP) around throwing up.<br /> <br /> Do you have separation anxiety?

Scroll to the bottom of the page to listen to my podcast episode on this topic.<br /> <br /> Tips for an Introverted Parent:<br /> <br /> Dealing with Chaos<br /> <br /> When you are an introvert you get recharged by being alone. When you are an extrovert you get recharged by being with others.

I found my heart pounding faster when I found a wrinkled birthday invitation at the bottom of my child’s book bag. I would struggle to respond to texts cheerfully asking to set up play dates. Thoughts like Do I have to go or can I drop my child off would run through my head. I found creative ways to avoid these social gatherings. Finally I realized my social anxiety was getting in the way. Getting in the way of my children’s lives, but more importantly getting in the way of mine as well. It took three kids and forty plus years to realize it - but social anxiety was cramping my style.<br /> <br /> Can you relate? Does this sound like you?

Learn the best ways to help kids with picking or pulling behavior. Your daughter comes home from school and half her eyebrows are gone. You are giving your son a bath and you notice a patch of hair missing from the back of his head. Your teenager picks at her skin until she creates scabs. This behavior can freak parents out! I know – it freaked me out. When scabs started showing up on my daughter’s forehead I didn’t know what to think. Why does she keep getting scabs in that one area? Then one day I saw her little hand digging deep into her skin. My heart sank. “What?”She said staring at me with big eyes. “I like to pick.” She said simply. She is not alone. Many of us have a child who pulls hair or picks skin. And many of us feel desperate to make them stop.<br /> <br /> Picking and pulling behavior (also known as Trichotillomania) are part of a group of disorders known as BFRBs, body-focused repetitive behaviors. Other behaviors can include things like nail biting, cheek biting, lip picking and tongue chewing. <br /> <br /> I invited Aneela Idnani Kumar and Ellen Crupi to come onto the AT Parenting Survival Podcast to help give us insight into BFRBs and teach us the best ways to approach a child with these behaviors. Aneela is the inspiration for the Keen bracelet and creator of the company Habitaware. The Keen bracelet is an engineering miracle that quietly notifies people with BFRBs when they are doing the unwanted behavior.

You are giving your son a bath and you notice a patch of hair missing from the back of his head. Your teenager picks at her skin until she creates scabs. This behavior can freak parents out! I know – it freaked me out. When scabs started showing up on my daughter’s forehead I didn’t know what to think. Why does she keep getting scabs in that one area? Then one day I saw her little hand digging deep into her skin. My heart sank. “What?”She said staring at me with big eyes. “I like to pick.” She said simply. She is not alone. Many of us have a child who pulls hair or picks skin. And many of us feel desperate to make them stop.<br /> <br /> Picking and pulling behavior (also known as Trichotillomania) are part of a group of disorders known as BFRBs, body-focused repetitive behaviors. Other behaviors can include things like nail biting, cheek biting, lip picking and tongue chewing. <br /> <br /> I invited Aneela Idnani Kumar and Ellen Crupi to come onto the AT Parenting Survival Podcast to help give us insight into BFRBs and teach us the best ways to approach a child with these behaviors. Aneela is the inspiration for the Keen bracelet and creator of the company Habitaware. The Keen bracelet is an engineering miracle that quietly notifies people with BFRBs when they are doing the unwanted behavior. Ellen is Habitaware’s Director of Sales and Awareness and a hair puller herself.<br /> <br /> Aneela and Ellen share their own stories of what it was like to grow up with Trichotillomania. They share their wisdom of what helped them and what didn’t.

We talk about parenting, OCD and how his documentary is helping educate the world about OCD. I’m embarrassed. I’m weird. I’m crazy. These are statements I hear every week from kids with OCD. Kids who think they are alone. Kids who don’t understand their disorder. Kids who don’t realize that there are kids all over the world, just like them.<br /> <br /> Chris Baier understands this struggle all too well. When his daughter Vanessa was just nine she changed from a happy-go-lucky child to a child filled with worries and compulsions. Vanessa also felt alone. She felt like no one else understood what she was going through.<br /> <br /> Chris met another parent, Kelly Anderson, a documentary filmmaker. They shared the same struggles and the same passion to help educate families and children about OCD. Together they created the documentary Unstuck: an OCD kids Movie.<br /> <br /> They found six brave and articulate kids with OCD to not only share their struggles, but more importantly to share their victories. This award-winning short film is about childhood OCD through the eyes of children. It not only helps dispel the stereotypes of OCD, but it puts a face and voice to this disorder. Children no longer have to think they are alone. They no longer have to think they are weird, crazy or broken. OCD may be a grueling disorder, but there is hope. In this film children will get hope from the unlikeliest of places, other children with OCD.<br /> <br /> ***<br /> This podcast is sponsored by nOCD. An app designed to help people beat OCD.

Karen Young, the creator HeySigmund.com teaches us how to talk to our kids. So many of us jump right into helping our anxious kids. Their battle is our battle. Their struggle is our struggle. We tell them how to breathe. We tell them how to think. But often, we don’t pause to tell them what anxiety is and how it works. We don’t help them understand anxiety. We don’t decode it and break it down into bite size pieces. <br /> <br /> Maybe this is because as parents, we often don’t understand anxiety ourselves? Maybe we don’t want our children to think there is anything wrong with them. Maybe we don’t want to pathologize or label them. But in the end we are doing our children a disservice. It is hard to get anxiety relief when you don’t understand how anxiety works. When you don’t understand what is making you nauseous. When you don’t understand what is making your heart pound in your ears. When you don’t understand what is making you sweat on a cold winter day.<br /> <br /> So how do you help your child understand anxiety? How do provide anxiety relief? It starts with education. <br /> <br /> I had the pleasure of interviewing Karen Young, a psychologist, author of Hey Warrior and the creator of HeySigmund.com.

Their battle is our battle. Their struggle is our struggle. We tell them how to breathe. We tell them how to think. But often, we don’t pause to tell them what anxiety is and how it works. We don’t help them understand anxiety. We don’t decode it and break it down into bite size pieces. <br /> <br /> Maybe this is because as parents, we often don’t understand anxiety ourselves? Maybe we don’t want our children to think there is anything wrong with them. Maybe we don’t want to pathologize or label them. But in the end we are doing our children a disservice.

The idea that a strep infection can cause OCD symptoms should be clearly understood. [Post recording Beth Maloney contacted me to clarify that strep can sometimes be difficult to treat with Penicillin alone. For that reason, Amoxicillin and Augmentin are the preferred choices because they both combine Penicillin with clavulanic acid, thus producing a more robust response.]<br /> <br /> Most of us know that Strep can attack our joints. Most of us know that Strep can attack our heart. But did you know that Strep can attack our brain? It hides behind OCD symptoms. It hides behind children who all of a sudden are afraid to eat, afraid to sleep. Who start to wet the bed. Who start to rage. Who start to develop compulsions, tics and struggles they’ve never had before. It hides under the mystery and denial of PANDAS/PANS.<br /> <br /> What if I told you that a simple Strep infection gone undetected, unnoticed, untreated can quietly make it’s way to the brain. What if I told you it can do so symptom-free until one day your child starts to develop OCD symptoms. Symptoms that can be mislabeled and misdiagnosed. Symptoms that won’t go away. Symptoms that therapists and doctors will shrug off as classic OCD. Symptoms that without antibiotics and medical intervention are there for the long hall for years to come.<br /> As a child therapist I didn’t understand PANDAS. And then one day my child developed issues around eating. Not the “I’m picky about my food” kind of eating. No, it was more like the “I am paralyzed with fear and I will starve to death rather than eat” kind of issue.<br /> <br /> No one can completely understand PANDAS until their child evolves into something they don’t recognize. Until their child is consumed with irrational fears and thoughts. Until their child is barely able to function or eat or sleep. <br /> <br /> The cruel reality of PANDAS is it doesn’t respond to your typical OCD protocol. I know, I am an OCD specialist. The irony is not lost, trust me. I did all the usual things. I got my son into Exposure Response Therapy. I got him on SSRIs. Nothing helped. Until I finally embraced the possibility of PANDAS and put him on antibiotics. <br /> <br /> Over a year I had watched my son slowly wilt into a 40-pound bag of bones. When his shirt was off I could clearly count all his ribs. Panic would pulse through my body. I had watched my son inspect his food. He was overwhelmed with fear. What if the food was watching him from heaven? What if the food tasted weird? What if the flavor stayed in his mouth forever and ever? What if he throws up? What if he gets too full and gets sick? No amount of debating or rationalizing would subside these irrational thoughts. I watched as mouthfuls of food were spit out. As mounds of paper towel consumed more food than his body did. As food got refused and his list of acceptable foods went down to three things.<br /> <br /> Two days on antibiotics my son whispered to me, “Mom, food doesn’t scare me anymore!” I watched him as he sat at the dinner table, his small frame leaning over a plate, as he asked for more. I let him stay up late that night. Afraid to interrupt the miracle. Relief pouring out of me.<br /> <br /> He is now eating more. He is now open to Exposure Response Prevention challenges. He wants to get better. He tells me when he has new fears. We challenge his irrational thoughts and we eat anyway. We still have a battle ahead of us, but we are finally on the right track.<br /> <br /> Do you want to learn more about PANDAS/PANS? Beth Maloney is the author of Saving Sammy and Childhood Interrupted. She is wise and passionate. She is a voice in the darkness, when so many professionals and doctors refuse to accept a condition that is stealing our children away.<br /> <br /> It is time PANDAS/PANS comes out of the darkness. That parents, therapists, medical providers educate those around them about this condition and don’t blindly deny something that clearly exists.<br /> <br /> Please join me and listen to my interview with Beth.
