    PAP 085: How Connection is More Powerful than Correction with Rebecca Brown Wright

    PAP 085: How Connection is More Powerful than Correction with Rebecca Brown Wright

    Connection is a fundamental human need, and one that holds an immense amount of power for individuals, even kids. Especially kids. And, when we're talking about kids with ADHD and/or autism, connection is often a struggle — socially or with family members, like parents. Feeling connected to others provides a sense of safety and security. We feel more at ease and less anxious when we feel connected. This means better behavior and a better sense of self and self-worth.
    I'm joined by Rebecca Brown Wright, creator of the Back-and-Forth Journal, for this episode of the Parenting ADHD Podcast. Rebecca shares her journey to realizing that connection with her children is more powerful than discipline and correction, and how it improved her kids' behavior. We also discuss how you can build and nurture authentic connections with your kids, too.

    PAP 081: Parent with Intention — What You Focus on Grows

    PAP 081: Parent with Intention — What You Focus on Grows

    There’s a Buddhist saying: “What you focus on grows.” Has there ever been a truer statement? Yes, this is common sense when you think about it. But have you ever thought of this in terms of parenting and ADHD and/or autism? It’s easy to focus on something painful or uncomfortable. It’s difficult to let that discomfort be and focus on something else, something you’d much rather have grow. Let’s think about this in terms of parenting kids with ADHD. There’s a whole lot of challenging, uncomfortable, painful, negative stuff we can focus on. There’s so much we want to fix and improve to end our kids’ struggles. But, we have to be very careful, because it’s easy to focus on the challenges and then the negativity grows and takes over everything. Listen in to this episode of the Parenting ADHD Podcast for insights on the crucial task of shifting your mindset and focusing on the things you want to grow, and pushing ADHD and/or autism to a tertiary role.

Kitten Grace ,

Life saving information !

I found this podcast after 7 years of what I believed to be good parenting , but after ‘going it alone ‘ with little to no support in my style of parenting , and having incredibly difficult times with many schools I started to break , I was getting angry and wanted to give up that style and be more authoritarian to my child out of hopelessness and heartbreaking frustrations and sadness . . This podcast and Penny’s wisdom , true understanding and relatability has saved my sanity , and my relationship with my son . . It’s all a continuing journey, but I feel so supported and boosted by each episode and I genuinely look forward to listening especially when I need a little reminder that we’re doing ok . . I believe following the guidance of this information each week can literally be the reason why our future generation of little’s with ADHD , will be better adjusted adults ! xx
