Nov 30, 2023

Ever feel like making friends is a puzzle you can't quite solve? 

You're not alone, mama! 

In this episode of Motherhood in ADHD, we unpack the nuances of friendship with our guest Caroline Maguire. 

Caroline is a leader in social skills development and the author of the book, “Why Will No One Play With Me?” – a handbook on how to communicate social skills training for your kids… and yourself!

If you’ve ever felt like your ADHD impacts how you make and keep friends, this episode is for you. 

We're talking about those oops-did-I-say-too-much moments and the I-have-no-idea-what-to-say ones. 

Caroline answers questions from listeners like:

  • What do I do when I’ve been ghosted?
  • How do I reach out when I’ve been distant due to my ADHD?

  • How should I approach talking to my friends, co-workers or bosses about how my ADHD affects my communication style?

  • How do I help my kids have successful friendships without pushing them too hard?

Our relationships shape our lives – but they’re not easy when you have ADHD. So let’s dig in and figure it out together.
