Motherhood in ADHD – Parenting with ADHD, Productivity Tips, Brain based Science, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Education to Help Moms with Adult ADHD

Aug 12, 2021

This week we welcome back one of my favorite ADHD experts, Dr. Ned Hallowell.
As an ADHD parent raising ADHD kids, Ned has the experience of raising his grown children, and his message of forgiveness and patience with ourselves is one I could listen to on repeat. He shares how to repair when we lose it on our kids. Because we will lose it.
We also discuss how the DSM doesn't cover a major part of ADHD - the emotional regulation - and how we can work towards changing the perception of ADHD among others, ADHD medication, and the plethora of misinformation out there.
I can't wait for you to hear this ADHD gold from the fairy godfather of ADHD himself, Dr. Edward Hallowell.
If you haven't yet, go back and listen to Part 1 of our chat. Ned and I talked about using our strengths, overcoming hurdles, negative self talk, the power of connection, and Ned did not shy away from sharing his own childhood trauma, which affects the way he loves on others and the way he parented his now grown children who also have ADHD.
Edward (Ned) Hallowell, M.D. is a board-certified child and adult psychiatrist and world authority on ADHD. He has spent the past four decades helping thousands of adults and children live happy and productive lives through his strength-based approach to neurodiversity, and has ADHD and dyslexia himself.
Dr. Hallowell is a New York Times bestselling author of the groundbreaking Distraction series, which began with Driven to Distraction, co-authored with Dr John Ratey in 1994, sparked a revolution in understanding of ADHD, and they continue with their latest book, ADHD 2.0. Dr. Hallowell also hosts the Distraction podcast. Learn more at
