Nathan Clarkson grew up as an out-of-the-box kid living with ADHD, mental illness, and (thankfully) a very loving mother, Sally.

The two have recently published their story in the book Different, which details how stories helped to shape Nathan, and how his mom came to decide that what other people thought about their parenting and educational approach was irrelevant.

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • how books shaped Nathan’s out-of-the-box childhood
  • why Sally and Nathan are so grateful for the time they spent reading together
  • how stories can help during dark times

Whether you are parenting an out-of-the-box child or not, this episode reminds us to embrace our children, just they way they are, and inspires us to use books to help them along the way.
