Here’s my list of what I’m exploring this week.

What I Said

Listen to my session on the Beautifully Complex podcast, with Penny Williams: “When Mom or Dad is Neurodivergent, Too” 

As if parenting isn’t tough enough! Add a parent- or two- with ADHD or other neurodiversity- and things get, well…certainly more challenging. We MUST get rid of our guilt and learn to embrace our differences.

Listen Now!

What I Learned

I love ADDitude Magazine and their website at www.ADDitudeMag.com; there’s something for everyone there and I found this article fun and helpful:

Everyday ADHD: Quirky Productivity Hacks for Easily Bored Brains

Read it here.

What I’m Reading

The Myth of Normal: Trauma, Illness & Healing in a Toxic Culture

By Dr. Gabor Maté

My friend, Dr. Gabor Maté’s, new book The Myth of Normal: Trauma, Illness, and Healing in a Toxic Culture will be available September 13, but you can pre-order it right now.

I’ve known Gabor for well over 20 years and if you haven’t read his other books, or seen his interviews on YouTube, or learned about his work on his website at www.drgabormate.com… you have been missing a lot. His work is life-changing, life-altering. He certainly has changed mine.
Order his book HERE.

Want to Store Your Child’s Artwork?

Art Portfolio

When my kids were school-aged, I bought two large portfolios to store my / their favorite masterpieces (and framed some, as well). Back then, we didn’t have cell phones but if you find it hard to part with their creative work, take a snapshot of it and upload it to a file on your computer.
