In this episode of the Parenting ADHD Podcast, I’m talking with Heather Chauvin about defining our job as a parent. Heather talks about her journey to discover her authentic role as a mom and how to parent in a way that serves the true goal and purpose of parenting — that serves her sons but also serves herself, too. Listen in to find out what is your real responsibility as a parent? Heather shares how to choose how you live, work, play and PARENT on your terms.

“My son taught me how to take back control of how I feel by purely trying to help him manage his own big emotions. As I started implementing these tools and strategies that I was learning, I started to feel in control of my own anger and anxiety. Then I could teach my son how to do the same.”
