Episode 179: Parenting Neurodivergent: Helping Your Child Be a Successful Adult with Zhara Astra

Listen to this parenting podcast

In this podcast for moms featuring Zhara Astra, a filmmaker, professor, and advocate for neurodiversity, autism, and ADHD, we discussed challenges, triumphs, and essential tips for supporting neurodivergent children on their journey to adulthood. 

Zhara reflects on her journey of realizing being neurodivergent while navigating her son's autism and oppositional defiant disorder diagnosis. Despite initial resistance, she embraced neurodivergence after introspection, sharing her lifelong hypersensitivity and feeling misunderstood. 

She emphasized the importance of supportive environments and friendships. She talked about the social struggles neurodivergent children face due to intense interests and communication barriers and advocated for compassionate support and inclusive communities. 

Zhara also shares strategies for parenting neurodivergent children, emphasizing self-regulation, empathy, and understanding. Through her advocacy work and personal experiences, she championed neurodiversity, challenged stereotypes, and fostered acceptance and support for individuals across the spectrum.

Episode 108: Is Negativity Affecting Your Parenting?

Listen to this parenting podcast

This podcast for parenting explores how past experiences shape parenting skills, mainly focusing on the impact of negativity. Many parents inadvertently adopt a disciplinary model, constantly pointing out their children's mistakes, which can lead to feelings of criticism and low self-esteem. 

This negativity bias, stemming from our evolutionary past, makes it challenging to see the positive aspects of parenting, especially when dealing with neurodivergent or mentally challenged children. 

However, modern parenting emphasizes compassion, empathy, and positive reinforcement to create strong emotional connections with children and foster healthy self-regulation. Parents must recognize and address negative patterns stemming from their upbringing, as these can influence their subconscious behaviors and reactions

Fostering a positive attitude and removing negativity bias allows parents to create a healthier, more supportive environment for their children and promote overall well-being and positive parent-child relationships.

Episode 99: Ways to Cultivate Flexibility in Kids: Parenting Hacks

Listen to this parenting podcast

Explore strategies for cultivating flexibility in children using parenting hacks to promote adaptability and resilience. This is my best parent podcast. I discussed the importance of fostering flexibility in today's rapidly changing world and shared practical tips for parents to incorporate into their daily routines. 

I also emphasized the significance of modeling flexibility and problem-solving skills for children and highlighted the role of positive reinforcement and consistency in promoting adaptive behavior. 

Implementing structured routines, encouraging open communication, and embracing mistakes as learning opportunities are just a few ways to help parents nurture flexibility in their children. Fostering a supportive and empowering environment helps parents develop flexibility and resilience in children to navigate life's challenges with confidence and optimism.

Episode 88: Overcoming OCD: A Therapist’s Perspective on Parenting with Michele Bernal

Listen to this parenting podcast

In this podcast for parenting, I discuss Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and the common mistakes parents make in treating it, joined by lead OCD therapist Michele Bernal. We highlight how OCD affects all aspects of a child’s life, emphasizing its intrusive thoughts and rituals that often go unnoticed. 

We address the misdiagnosis of OCD, often overshadowed by anxiety, depression, or ADHD, and stress the importance of accurate diagnosis through brain mapping. Michele advocates for mindfulness-based skills to combat OCD, urging parents not to accommodate the disorder and providing tools to help children manage their thoughts and behaviors. 

The importance of exposure response prevention (ERP) is emphasized, alongside creating a supportive family environment to facilitate progress and overcome challenges in OCD treatment. Through understanding, commitment, and a supportive system, families can navigate the journey of overcoming OCD together, leading to transformative results in managing the disorder.

Episode 68: Calm Brain Parenting Brain Hacks

I also consider this episode one of my best podcasts for moms. Here, I focused on the crucial role of parenting in calming a child's brain amidst the increasing stressors impacting children's mental health. I highlighted the necessity of creating a nurturing environment and teaching coping mechanisms to support children's emotional regulation. 

I addressed the challenges of dealing with a dysregulated child, emphasizing the importance of proactive strategies instead of reactive responses. Also, I explained the differences between overstimulated and understimulated behaviors and urged parents to find a balance to effectively support their child's mental well-being. 

She emphasizes the significance of self-regulation for parents, as children co-regulate with their caregivers. Practical parenting hacks are shared, including prioritizing sleep and physical health. Incorporating magnesium supplementation to support mental well-being also helps.
