Debbie Reber is a parenting activist, best-selling author, podcast host, speaker, and mother to a child who is differently wired. Before creating TiLT Parenting, Debbie spent more than fifteen years writing inspiring books for woman and teens on issues like media literacy, self-esteem, and confidence. 

When she learned that her son, Asher, was differently wired, she spent years figuring out how to best support him and recognized how incredibly difficult it is to find solid, reliable, useful, and optimistic, information for parents like her.

In 2016 she launched TiLT Parenting as a podcast and community so parents stuck in this place of frustration and not-knowing can feel connected and hopeful as they move forward in figuring out what their child needs. 

In this episode, Debbie is sharing some of the lessons she learned along her journey in parenting an atypical child, the a-ha moment she had when she realized that she wasn't showing up for her son the way he needed her to be, and she is giving some of her best advice for co-parenting when you have a differently wired child. We covered so many topics in this episode that I know will be valuable for parents of atypical and typical children alike!
