Beautifully Complex Podcast: Discover effective strategies to motivate neurodivergent kids when the importance of a task isn’t enough. Episode 268 explores overcoming ADHD motivation challenges.

Hello!

I'm Penny.

I empower stuck and struggling parents to dial down the chaos and intensity and help their neurodivergent kid thrive. You'll parent with purpose and create the family life you crave.

Through my podcast, award-winning books, parent training programs, parent coaching, and parenting summits, I’ve helped thousands of parents raising kids with ADHD, autism, and/or anxiety improve their lives.

I'd be honored to help you, too.
