In this episode of the Peaceful Parenting Podcast, Kalista, a full-time working mother joins me for a coaching session. She shares her challenges as a neurodivergent mom in parenting her highly sensitive toddler.

We talk about how to move from survival mode to simple life mode, the realization that perfection is not the goal, the usefulness of empathizing with our child’s perspective, empowerment in making active choices, the value of self-compassion, and understanding the functioning of the nervous system, and the concept of using tools like earplugs to manage overwhelming noise.

  • 4:02 How overwhelm impacts the enjoyment of her child
  • 7:16 Taking a nervous system reset
