Episode 25 : ‘Positive Parenting a Kiddo with ADHD’ – Susy Parker
I approached Susy Parker on Instagram after she commented on one of my posts, and knew that I had to have her on the podcast.
Her journey of parenting a kiddo with ADHD, anxiety and oppositional defiance disorder is breathtaking.
From reading the warnings of drug labels, questioning the protocol for medicating kids with ADHD and her own journey of understanding her daughter. The true essence of connection in her family, the empowerment which she unearthed and the surprising lessons that she has learned along the way.
It’s a eye opening discussion about the process of working with children who are gifted in different ways, working against the societal negativity around ADHD and creating a community online for parents beginning and living within the same journey as her.
Susy Parker is an author, blogger, speaker, podcaster and proud ADHD Mama. Susy is passionate about inspiring and educating parents to see their child’s differences in a positive light. She empowers parents to see past their child’s diagnosis and help them to unwrap their gifts.
Susy runs regular workshops both online and in her community where she teaches parents how to manage their child’s differences holistically. She has an online Sisterhood Membership where she shares weekly tips, tricks and tools and guides mums in navigating this journey together. Susy features as a guest writer for blogs such as Lifehack, Healthline and ADDitude magazine.
She is passionate about helping people to see that ADHD isn’t a disorder, but just a different way to be, and with the right tools and guidance – ADHD can be turned into a superpower!
