This podcast is great for me to fall asleep to. None of the episodes are interesting and the audio is bad so I’m never focusing on the words. Five minutes and I’m out like a light.

I've listened to just 4 podcasts and find them very difficult to follow. The content is interesting and informative however the experts delivery is poor. They are trying to cram too much information into the segment, talk far too quickly and do not take time to reinforce or recap on critical points.

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
