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

"I'm a failure. People don't like me. I just keep screwing everything up!"

If any of those thoughts have crossed your mind and you are continually overcritical of yourself...this episode is for you. 

These types of thoughts happen to everyone (including our neurotypical friends). For those of us with ADHD, these constant and reoccurring negative thoughts are a force to be reckoned with. But they don't have to control you or overshadow your life.

As I reflected on the episodes we produced during 2021, I realized that some of the top-rated Motherhood in ADHD episodes deserved another time in the spotlight. These topics were just TOO GOOD. 

Today's "Episode Encore" is all about understanding Self Regulation and our executive function plays a part in how we feel about ourselves. 

I share information about Self Regulation including reflection, impairment, sensory overload, fear, frustration, anger, embarrassment, anxiety, friendships, dopamine, CBT, celebrating our wins, managing self-criticism, and Rejection Sensitivity Dysphoria. 

It's the whole enchilada in this one! Have a listen and let's learn about our ADHD brains and how we can work WITH them instead of against them!
