Amy Marie Hann:
Hello and welcome. My name is Amy Marie Hann. I am the creator of Master the Mundane. On Instagram, you can find me at @ActivatedADHDMama and I help moms with ADHD manage their home and their family. And a big, big part of that is raising ADHD kids because so many of us are doing just that. And so today I have two very special guests today. I have Dr. Lori Long and Katie Severson. Katie and Lori are part of an amazing trio called The Childhood Collective. They create content on Instagram and have courses designed especially for parents raising ADHD kids. You also have probably listened to them on their podcast Shining with ADHD. So today, they are here with me today to talk about helping our kids with schools. So welcome Dr. Lori and welcome Katie. And I'm so glad you guys are here today.
I've gotten asked for advice many times recently about how to help kids with ADHD. Whew. It's not easy but man is it a HUGE blessing. But really, is parenting every easy? All kids come with their own unique challenges and blessings and our job is to help them become the best version of them. And to ask for LOTS of forgiveness in the process.
There is so much misinformation out there about ADHD and SO much shame. Way too much shame!
