In this episode of the Parenting ADHD Podcast, I'm talking with divorce and family attorney, Morghan Leia Richardson, about how to navigate co-parenting a child with ADHD when the parents don't agree on ADHD treatment and parenting. There are ways to pre-plan for these parenting disagreements during the divorce process, as well as resources and recourse for resolution after. Court proceedings aren't the only option for resolution, and Morghan outlines a few better options. If you and your co-parent disagree on how to parent your child with ADHD, this episode is a must-listen. "Shielding your child from the conflict and a legal process is really important to protect your child. If you go to court about your child's treatment, your child will be required to be involved."
