Show Notes

In this episode host, Naomi speaks with guests, Neil Millett, Samantha Braun and Henal Hann talk about how they're helping their children and how they're helping themselves. We asked them how they are coping with the challenges that the pandemic brings and trying to be a parent during this stressful time. Hear them speak openly and honestly about their experiences parenting during the pandemic and how workplace culture is changing. Neil and Henal share openly about their experiences with redundancy and loss of confidence. They give specific advice on what companies can do to help support working parents and caregivers. Samantha talks openly about her challenges as an expat living in Sweden and how the pandemic affects her as a neurodiverse parent.
