121: Raising Chloe – A Chat Between A Mother and Her Daughter

Mother daughter relationships can be tough. Chloe and Lisa are a shining example of what can be achieved through mutual respect and understanding.

For the first time on ADHD reWired, we were joined by a mother and her now grown child, Chloe, 21. Chloe wanted me to have her mom on the show, refering to her mom as her superhero. Instead, we got to hear both of them share stories, strategies, and struggles.

Like many with ADHD, anxiety and depression can be part of the picture. This was true for Chloe as well.

Lisa, Chloe’s mom talks about what is was like raising Chloe. From her escaping from her crib, the tantrums, her resistance to taking medication due to wanting to “be normal,” to battles of what she wore. Chloe wanted to wear fishleg stockings. Her mom said no. Chloe wanted her nose pearced, her mom said no. And during this episode, Chloe thanked her for not letting her get her nose peirced.
