Parents of neurodivergent children, especially parents of kids who fit the PDA profile of autism, will benefit from reading Amanda Diekman's book on low-demand parenting. In addition to giving clear guidance, her heartfelt journey of acceptance is a beautiful read.--Diane Gould, Founder PDA North America
An empowering and compassionate guide for parents seeking an alternative approach to raising their children. This book beautifully captures the essence of low-demand parenting, providing practical strategies to honor children's boundaries, build trust, and nurture their authentic selves. It's a game-changer for those ready to embrace a radically respectful and joy-filled relationship with their kids. A must-read for any parent looking to break free from traditional parenting norms.--Debbie Reber, host of the Tilt Parenting Podcast and author of Differently Wired.
Drawing from her expertise and life experience as an autistic adult, Amanda Diekman's 'Low-Demand Parenting' offers a compassionate and practical guide for parents that will increase their understanding and the experience of their neurodivergent children. Amanda provides guidance to support and develop trust with all children, even those with the most difficulty dealing with the challenges of a neurotypical world. As a result, parents will be set on a path to foster genuine connections and develop a positive sense of self. 'Low-Demand Parenting' is a breath of fresh air given all the discipline oriented approaches that confront parents, and will be a valuable resource for creating a nurturing environment where children can thrive and be celebrated for who they are.--Barry M. Prizant, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, Author of Uniquely Human: A Different Way of Seeing Autism and The SCERTS Model
