episode fifty-seven: Co-Parenting a Meltdown

When you have a differently wired kid (gifted, 2e, asd, spd, adhd, etc), meltdowns happen.  When meltdowns happen in the midst of 2 parents, it is inevitable that you both will see things differently and have your own unique ways of intervening.  Join Heather & Jon as they discuss the challenges of co-parenting through a meltdown.

Parenting is difficult.  Parenting Fringy Kids who are gifted, twice exceptional, autistic, or otherwise differently wired is super difficult.  Parenting Fringy Kids with a co-parent you like, is super duper difficult.  Parenting Fringy Kids with a co-parent you are no longer partnered with, is difficult beyond words!  Brian Burns joins us in this episode to give tips, tricks, and support for all of you who are doing the complex work of co-parenting with someone who isn't on the same page as you.
