Play • 44 min

When we decide to have children, we often imagine what they will be like and become. But, that vision doesn’t usually include thinking about our children having challenges like autism, ADHD in a world that is scary, violent and feels unsafe.

Jorie Houlihan is today’s guest and she shares what all of this is like and what she’s learned.  We have a great conversation on how Jorie navigates these challenges as a mom that discovered she also has ADHD. We talk about how to accept what is instead of what is not in both our children and ourselves.


  • How to embrace the reality of what is instead of focusing on what is not with our children
  • Finding the strengths in the midst of struggles with our children
  • What it is like for someone in a community that is dealing with trauma of a mass shooting
  • Helpful ways Jorie found to talk to her children
  • Tips for moms dealing with ADHD
