Today, we interview Dr. Connie McReynolds, author of the groundbreaking book             "Solving the ADHD Riddle." Beyond traditional methods, Dr. McReynolds advocates for innovative interventions that address the root causes of learning and behavioral challenges rather than just the symptoms. Her work in neurofeedback is a testament to the effectiveness of such alternative approaches. She also illuminates the often-overlooked auditory and visual processing issues underlying learning difficulties. Dr. McReynolds explains how these challenges are not related to the ability to hear or see but to how the brain processes information, which can significantly impact attention and learning. Her approach offers hope and improved quality of life for those affected by ADHD, as evidenced by her research and publications.

This episode dives into the various forms of OCD, one of the top treatments for OCD "ERP, exposure or response prevention therapy, and how parents can sometimes inadvertently exacerbate their child's OCD symptoms through something called "parental accommodations."

In this touching podcast Christina Rasmussen, author and grief specialist, beautfully reframes how adversity in our childhood creates a form of "grief" that we carry into our parenting experiences. This grief can lead parents to stifling their children's self-expression and ultimately to disconnection from their children and themselves. Christina has a unique way of looking at parental triggers and how to work with them from a place of self-compassion. Christina Rasmussen is an acclaimed grief educator and bestselling author of Second Firsts (2013), Where Did You Go? (2018), and Invisible Loss (2024). In 2010, four years after her thirty-five-year-old spouse passed away from Stage 4 colon cancer, she created the Life Reentry process, which launched her on a mission to bring compassion, grace, and validation to thousands while simultaneously establishing an exit from what she termed the Waiting Room.

This is a recording from our 2024 summit. The tween and teen years are rife with intense social challenges in school, friendships, sports, and other activities where instances of teasing, bullying, social exclusion, and marginalization are unfortunately all too common. Social media has only made this behaviour easier and more insidious. But when kids aged 9 and up can be coached by a parent to respond effectively, manage their emotions in social situations, and recognize their own self-worth, they can reclaim a sense of their own power and develop skills like resilience, social and emotional intelligence, and compassion for life. Join Kim as he gives you strategies to give tweens and teens the tools to address the problem themselves and develop mastery over the situation—rather than having parents step in and try to "fix" things. He gives vital proactive strategies to help build strong family relationships, trust, and connection so kids can be better prepared for the inevitable social challenges life brings.
