More
You’ve read all the books. You’ve joined all the Facebook groups. You’ve started therapy. Now if your child would just get onboard with the whole process – they can really make progress with their issues. But they won’t. They refuse to talk about it. They refuse to fight it. They refuse any and all help. How are you supposed to help kids with OCD or anxiety if they don’t want to help themselves? That is the million-dollar question.

10/29/2018
More
If you have a child with any type of anxiety, you are more likely to have a child with anger problems as well. This makes sense. Anxiety is like a pressure cooker. Stress and worry build up over time and eventually it boils over. And when it does – it isn’t pretty. Many parents I work with ask, How do I help my child with anger problems? That is a great question. And it is one I spent a whole podcast episode talking about! *** Sign up for my weekly email newsletter:...

PSP 089: How Do I Help My Child with Perfectionism

10/22/2018
More
It can be so hard to watch your child beat themselves up. To watch them set standards to high, no one would be able to achieve them. To berate, insult and demean themselves. How are you supposed to hep a child with perfectionism? Some kids are internally driven to strive for perfectionism. Perfectionism isn’t synonymous with go-getter. Perfectionism slows people down. Destroys self-esteem. Immobilizes productivity and success. It isn’t something you want sticking around. The good news is...

I talk about what they are and how to focus on them at home in this latest podcast episode. *** To learn more...
