    Practicing Low-Demand Parenting with ADHD

    Practicing Low-Demand Parenting with ADHD

    Before starting today's episode, why not check out Kate's ADHD workshops and free resources here?
    Ever since reading about the concept of 'low-demand parenting,' which is helping many neurodivergent parents regulate their neurodivergent kids, I've been desperate to talk about this on the podcast. It was a revelation to learn that there is an actual practice where we can intentionally drop the external pressures and societal conditioning and intuitively parent our children according to their needs, energy, and nervous systems.
    I'm delighted to welcome this week's guest, Amanda Diekman, an autistic adult, parent coach, and author in the neurodiversity space. We discuss dropping demands, restoring calm, and finding connections with our children.Amanda became a leading voice in the movement for low-demand parenting practices with her book Low Demand Parenting, published in July 2023.  She lives with her husband and three neurodivergent children in an intentional community in Durham, NC.
    On today's episode of the ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast, Amanda and Kate spoke about:
    Amanda's son's autism diagnosis journey What it means to be a 'low-demand parent'Re-defining how you want to parentAbeism - what does this look likeLetting go of parenting demands, habits or standards that aren't benefiting you Releasing all the expectations, pressures, shoulds and conditioning to help create a calmer environment for our familyThings you can drop or change to make parenting easier for youMaking communication safe for your autistic or neurodivergent child What it means to 'un-school'Dealing with systems and schools as a neurodivergent parent Asking for accommodations for you and your children

    ADHD Parenting Rage and Emotional Dysregulation

    ADHD Parenting Rage and Emotional Dysregulation

    Check out Kate's brand-new workshops and resources here.
    No matter how much you love your children, any parent will admit that you have had a moment (or several!) of 'mom rage', and if this is you, I hope this conversation will help you release some of the shame you may feel. Not only do we focus on this, but we also discuss the compassion we need to show ourselves and discuss all the many moving parts of losing our sh*t as parents, including emotional dysregulation, overwhelm, resentment, society and perimenopause. I hope you find this conversation inclusive, helpful, healing, funny and relatable. And listen out for the very last few minutes, where we address some key practical tools to helping anyone out who feels this emotional dysregulation most days.
    This week's guest is Minna Dubin, the author of MOM RAGE: The Everyday Crisis of Modern Motherhood (Seal Press).
    Her writing has been featured in the New York Times, The Sunday Times Magazine, Oprah Daily, Salon, Parents, Romper, and elsewhere. As a leading feminist voice on 'Mom Rage', Minna has appeared on MSNBC, Good Morning America, The Tamron Hall Show, The BBC Woman’s Hour, and NPR. She lives in Berkeley with her husband, two kids, and no pets because enough is enough.
    On this episode of the ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast, Minna and Kate speak about:
    The mental load of being a parent Allowing yourself to feel your angerProcessing anger in a positive wayParenting overwhelmShame about our emotional dysregulationConforming to social expectationsWorking hard to keep regulated The build-up of anger and resentment Creating a support system for yourself Letting go of martyrdom and allowing in self-compassionAsking for help with parental tasks Parenting neurodivergent children and the complexities Being an adult without talking about kids

    The Cerebellum and ADHD - what we need to know!

    The Cerebellum and ADHD - what we need to know!

    Check out all of Kate's latest workshops and resources here
    Did you know that we can create new neural pathways using neuroplasticity by activating a part of the brain called the cerebellum? Enhancing this part of our brain - over the pre-frontal cortex - can ease and lessen our ADHD symptoms and create a more effortless daily life.
    This week's guest is Wynford Dore, an entrepreneur on a mission to change the lives of one million children. Wynford is the founder of Zing Brain Development programmes, and for the last twenty years, He has focused on changing the world, one brain at a time. He's funded many research projects and now works with the leading academics to determine the best solutions that successfully accelerate and develop learning in the brain—which finds our hidden potential and increases mental capacity…. including creating greater, stronger emotional regulation.
    During today's episode of The ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast, Kate and Wynford talked about:
    What is the cerebellum and why is it so important to neurodivergenceHow can we stimulate and activate the cerebellumStepping out of our thinking brain, the pre-frontal cortex and executive thinking and using the cerebellum moreWhat we need to know about the cerebellum and ADHDNew ways of learning for neurodivergent brainsCreating new neural pathways and plasticity to enhance the cerebellumWynford's Zing programme to help people activate their cerebellumActivities and ways to help activate the cerebellum

    Healing Money Trauma and Becoming Financially Resilient

    Healing from financial abuse or trauma can feel scary. Our nervous system may have been used to being hypervigilant and disempowered around money due to generational trauma and not understanding our neurodivergence.

So helpful 🙏🏼

Thankyou Kate for your podcasts. They really help me own & cherish my ADHD. My life/tendencies made sense once I was diagnosed in my 40’s. Now at 64 I can accept,& understand my ADHD brain though I must admit, I still unearth some shame hiding there as well. Your podcast helps. 🙏🏼💜

Ep: Joseph pack!

I just listened to the episode with Joseph pack and everything he said resonated so much with me. I’m not anti medication but I have had experience with medication and although it helped was not for me. I spent time working on a cattle station in Australia and my adhd felt
As though it went, it obliviously didn’t but it became a strength in the right environment and I felt the most peace I have ever experienced. Nature is something us with adhd HAVE to incorporate into our lives and being active also crucial. There is hope and there are incredible strengths we hold and I hope that
instead of trying to fit in we find the right environments for us! you are not broken and the world needs you an your adhd! ❤️

Don’t mind the podcast

I don’t mind the podcast and I’ve learnt a lot! However, much of the content and conversation is dedicated to motherhood / parenthood. There’s plenty of women with ADHD who do not have children and may not intend to have any. A woman has an identity and experiences outside that of being as parent with ADHD and/or the parent of an ADHD child. There’s so many podcasts dedicated to parenting and so few good ones which focus on women navigating the patriarchal world with ADHD. Would love this podcast to focus more on that and less through the lens of parenting.
