    EP 31- Natural strategies to help our child with ADHD enhance executive functioning

    Let's talk about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. (ADHD)
     
    The three main signs of ADHD are inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity which can show up in different ways. Children with ADHD often feel misunderstood by the people around them. 
     
    Verbal communication (Talking things out) can be difficult at times, especially when they don’t have it all together in their minds just yet. And it can be frustrating not to be able to pinpoint the root cause of issues immediately...So we also discuss mindset shifts around the diagnosis, and how those literally change our family life.

    EP29- A Jungian Approach to Parenting

    Welcome to one of my favorite topics, Shadow Work.
    *In this episode, we analyze what our subconscious shadow is, how it forms early on in our childhood, as well as our persona, our ego.
    *We can gently bring it to light with self-compassion to understand our unseen patterns, stories, and triggers.
    *We review the benefits of wholeheartedly accepting ourselves, for ourselves and our gifted child.
    *We define Jung's theory of the child's mind opposite to Lock's "Tabula rasa" and how this helps us develop our child's true self.

    EP26: Thriving with ADHD: The Michael Phelps Story

    EP26: Thriving with ADHD: The Michael Phelps Story

    How can a child thrive with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)?
    No doubt about it, it takes a village determined to support the child. Successful ADHD families report being supported by teachers, coaches, and extended family members.
    It takes most of all the determination, unwavering patience of parents determined to see their child thrive no matter what, determined to see strengths where others see weaknesses.
    Debbie Phelps, a middle-school principal in Towson, Maryland, and mother of Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, gave multiple interviews about him. Here is what I learned about Debbie.
