In this special kid’s POV edition, my 12-year-old son Asher and I have a frank and honest conversation about the topic of diagnoses, labels, and the stigmas associated with diagnoses.

I know that Asher has strong feelings about all of these topics and I thought it was important to bring his perspective to the podcast because many parents struggle with the question of what to disclosed, when to disclose, and how to disclose to their kids about their neurological differences. In our conversation, we talk about how Asher feels about his diagnoses, why he believes parents should tell their kids exactly what’s going on with them, and why he’s totally find for others to know about the ways in which he’s differently wired.

 

About Debbie and Asher: Debbie Reber is the founder of TiLT and the host of the TiLT Parenting Podcast. 12-year-old Asher is Debbie’s son and is regularly featured on the podcast. Find out more about Debbie and Asher by visiting the About Page.
