In this age of digital connectedness, many people feel isolated and alone. The ability to connect with everyone, everywhere, is commonplace. Despite this, deep communication has become a challenge, particularly between parents and teens.
The success or failure of any interaction depends on many different factors. Some of these include the personality, culture, sense of humor, age, life experiences, and neurocognitive make-up of the individuals involved.
Throughout my years of parenting, working in informal education and counseling, advocating for the inclusion of neurodivergent individuals in society and becoming neurodivergent myself after surviving brain surgery, I have discovered many ways to help bridge divides and open the minds and hearts of those involved.
I can’t wait to hear what you think about it!
