Ep. 56: Different

How do you parent a child that is… different? They beat to their own drum, they walk a path different than your other kids, they may even have an official diagnosis or two (cue the acronyms).

That’s what I talk about in this episode with Sally Clarkson, a mom of four adult children, one of whom is Nathan, who’s “outside the box.” Nathan and Sally co-wrote a new book called Different: The Story of an Outside-the-Box Kid and the Mom Who Loved Him, and in this episode, we talk about their experience.

This hits home for me in so many ways as a parent. Maybe it will for you, too.
