In this episode of the Parenting ADHD Podcast, I’m talking with childhood behavior coach and development specialist, Lauren Pace, about how parents can create an environment that empowers kids with ADHD and helps them thrive. This discussion isn’t about the interior design of your child’s spaces, but about the relationships, perspectives, understanding, and compassion we have with our kids and how that affects behavior and grit. Lauren packed a lot of powerful insights and strategies in this one episode. Listen in now!
“You can tell the same story in a way that paralyzes or in a way that empowers.”
