Have you ever questioned your own happiness and wondered, “How the heck is everyone else so dang happy?” If so, you are not alone. Today’s guest is Penny Williams, founder of, host of the Parenting ADHD Podcast, and award-winning author of four books on parenting kids with ADHD, including Boy Without Instructions.

For a long time, Penny believed she was not destined to be happy. She believed “happy people” just had something she didn’t have. So, she began a very intentional journey of learning what makes people happy, where she stumbled on the power of practicing neutrality. She went on to actively transform her victim mindset into a survivor mindset! And all that “hippy dippy” talk of gratitude, positivity, choice and hope – well there is something to it in fostering happiness.

Listen to this honest and warm conversation between two moms who have both struggled in raising neurodivergent children (ADD, ADHD, ASD) and reshaped their mindset to become authentically happy.
