I have an 11 year old son with an ADHD and ODD dx. I am grateful for the information this podcast provides. He is very intelligent and kind hearted but displays some out of bounds behaviors for sure. It's helpful to understand more of what he is going through.

I was so excited to see your podcast, and I'm so interested in what you have to say, but your microphone/sound quality is killing my ears.🙁

That woman smacking her lips after every statement is horrifying for ADHDers with sound sensitivity or misophonia.

I have ADHD and some of the advice here would have completely sabotaged my life so I’m warning against this episode. For example using screens so much as a way to make the parents life’s easier instead of finding better solutions. It works in the short run but it’s like crack cocaine for me and I’m desperately trying to get a handle of my screen addiction as an adult. Check out Dr Gerry Chapmans (Famous for the 5 love languages) newest book about kids and screens. And I can continue but I just say that there are so many other good episodes that I just ask you to skip this one

This guy needs a speech coach badly. I’ve never heard so many umm and ahhs from a presenter, it makes it hard and distracting to absorb his information which is unfortunate.

i found it very hard to keep focused during this podcast, because of the large amount of information and the enormous number of stop-words ... but i highly recommend the book mentioned in the introduction. it is a very structured step-by-step (self-)learning guide to being more mindful, even with an adhd-brain. i needed a lot more than the proposed 8 weeks, but it thought me what mindfulness is and how it can help me to steer my focus, and relax as a consequence of that.
