10 Years of Learning to Parent My Neurodivergent Kid

This was not written by me, but it was written by Kate Lynch, one of the new writers for my publication, Neurodiversified.

It is one of the best pieces I’ve read in a long time and everyone should read it, especially parents of neurodivergent children, but also especially those who aren’t. 

So, like, everyone.

Neurodiversified has just published a new story, written by Kate Lynch.

10 Years of Learning to Parent My Neurodivergent Kid: A letter to the fierce, brave and loving parent I was 10 years ago.

“It’s incredible what you have done with him!” 

“They so wanted me to acknowledge my role as savior.”

“Our family has grown in wisdom and kindness rather than numbers.”


For more great reads about neurodiversity, parenting, and advocacy, follow Neurodiversified.

We’re always on the lookout for more educational, informative, and well-written articles about ADHD, twice exceptionality, neurodiversity, parenting, advocacy, and education.
