Journey With Me Through ADHD: A Podcast for Kids is designed for children with ADHD to listen to and feel understood. It will educate, empower, and encourage listeners to understand their uniquely wired, neurodivergent minds. The challenges will be discussed, mindset growth will be encouraged, and strengths/gifts will be celebrated! ADHD will grow from an excuse to a reason that we need to face challenges head on and become an advocate for the incredible strengths that we have!
Morning Madness! Waking Up Like the ADHD Warrior You Are!
Who else dreads the hustle and bustle of many mornings?! Once we open our eyes to start our day, a flood of executive function skills are being called on and that can just put you in a state of overwhelm and cause emotions to take over, going in a downward spiral if we let it! This is where you can make a choice and a change!! You are an ADHD warrior who can find the armor that you can put on each morning to make it run more smoothly and feel calmer. It may be a checklist, reminders and alarms set, a whiteboard with "to dos" written in order and then you get the satisfaction of erasing it when it's finished! Are you willing to identify the areas of struggle that are causing the chaos? Are you willing to create structure and routine that works best for you and your needs? Are you willing to build in time to find your own calm and space to get your mind filled with the dopamine it needs to feel more motivated, more focused, and ignited with a joy chemical that will start your day out in a positive direction?! This is all possible! You will be able to interact with this podcast and come up with your own morning success routine!

What are You Thankful For?
Tomorrow many of us are celebrating Thanksgiving! Those of you from other parts of the world, I see you and am beyond thankful for you too! This is a fun episode where I talk with my daughter, who is 9 and also an ADHD warrior!
We chat about being thankful for the unique way she is wired and she shares some awesome insight and even gives a great resource. She is loving a workbook called, "Thriving With ADHD" https://www.amazon.com/Thriving-ADHD-Workbook-Kids-Self-Regulate/dp/1641520418/ref=asc_df_1641520418?tag=bingshoppinga-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=80195683465658&hvnetw=o&hvqmt=e&hvbmt=be&hvdev=c&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=&hvtargid=pla-4583795260707197&psc=1

"The Kindness Machine"- Discovering the Power in Kindness
Being "kind" sounds like such a simple thing to do, but honestly it takes a lot of practice to show kindness to others and yourself! In this episode, you will hear from Christina Dankert, who is a teacher, author, and mama of 2 kiddos. She will share more about the power of being kind to others and yourself!
Is there a kindness machine inside of you? If so, what does it look and act like?! How can you show kindness to yourself and others through your words and actions today?! Take time to reflect while you listen and learn the value of kindness!
You can find Christina and pre-order her book, "The Kindness Machine" from her website! http://Christinadankert.com

ADHD Paralysis: "I'm Not Lazy"
Do you ever think "Man, I am feeling so lazy?" This is a common misunderstanding when you live with an ADHD brain! The truth is that one big battle that we are faced with is something called "ADHD paralysis", which is when we are up against a big task and our mind goes on overload, we freeze!
In this episode, you will hear from actor and comedian, Connor DeWolfe. I share one of his "ADHD Tips" comedy skits. It will be a fun piece of the episode to listen to a few times. You will find humor, connection, and it will be a great conversation starter too! He mentions "ADHD paralysis" in the skit and that's what I run with for the rest of the episode!
You will learn how to combat this frozen state with movement, snacks, sunlight, music, and connection. Another thing that Connor mentions is body doubling, which is working alongside someone else! I hope you can take and apply these strategies the next time you are faced with feeling frozen!
Email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org with audio clips or to set up an interview to share your ADHD journey on a future episode!

The Decision Making Rollercoaster
Does your mind go on a spiral rollercoaster when faced with even the simplest decision!? This is because our brains struggle to prioritize or organize our thoughts around the decision being made!! This challenge sends down a road of shame and discontent as we are left wondering which choice to make! If that is true for you, this is a great episode to listen to! You will hear my daughter share her breakfast battle and her struggle to pick out the right outfit in the morning! Then she asks you if its hard to decide too! I share some tips and tools to use in this decision making battle as you are encouraged to talk to someone you trust, ask reflective questions, and face the fear monster that often creates more of a problem deciding on things! Buckle up and join me on this episode and let the decision making begin!

I Am the Grasshopper! See Me Fly!
Have you ever said the works, "I want to be like..." or " I want to be normal!?" My question is...what is "normal" anyways and why would we all want to be the same thing!? For ADHD Awareness Month, I am trying to get more creative with my episodes and begin empowering kids voices to be heard! You will hear from 8 year old Cameron, from Canada, who shares how he feels having ADHD. This brave boy confidently tells you how ADHD can be "great and annoying sometimes..." He talks about the "superpowers" that his ADHD gives him too! You will also hear about how ants and grasshoppers are both insects, but are also different in so many ways! We don't want to try to be an ant when we are born to be a grasshopper! Your take away is to talk about or write down what you feel is great and annoying about having ADHD!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like your voice heard on a future podcast episode! It's more fun to learn and grow alongside each other!!!
