Episode #29 - Why We've Got To Parent Differently

by Lindsay Leiviska, MAT, SNAM | A Heart For All Students

Getting Our Kids To Fall In Line Is Not Our Problem.

Too many children spend their entire formative years struggling to fit in the box of the world’s expectations.  They grow up feeling that they are never enough.  This is not ok.

If you’re a momma to one of these kids, whether they have ADHD, ASD, SPD or no acronym at all, you get it. 

You may find yourself up at night worried, confused and heart-broken.

“What is going to happen to him?”

“Will she always struggle?”

Friend, I’ve been there.  And I’ve come to the conclusion that if we want our kids to avoid a bleak future, we mommas may want to rally together to make a change.  And that change starts with us.

Devotional Christian Special Needs Mom

You’re exahusted.  You love your child deeply & want them to thrive.  But there is just one problem.

Your kid has meltdowns every.single.day. 

And nothing works.  I’ve been there, I get it and I’m on the other side.   

That’s why I’ve created the 5 Day Video Teaching & Devotional Series

Learn about God’s design of the brain, executive functioning, self-regulation and their impact on behavior. 

Dig into God’s Word & see how the Gospel points to the most effective & life-giving approach to the most challenging behaviors.  

A Heart For All Students - My Cover

Hey Friend!  I’m Lindsay.

I believe every child has been designed by God…

with gifts, passions, and purpose.

My heart is to equip you to parent and educate your unique child to thrive!

Let’s stop conforming to the world and benchmark expectations that demand our kids be people they were never designed to be.

It’s ok to parent our kids differently.  One mom at a time, we can support, encourage and think outside-the-box for our kids and one another.

We are in this together!
