Who is Lacy Estelle Anyway?
Lacy Estelle (Watson), is a mother, perhaps just like yourself who struggled tremendously with parenting her oldest child and also adjusting to parenting life altogether. Feeling constantly faulty and like she was hardwired to do everything wrong, she pedaled up hill for the first half of her parenting life. It wasn’t until after her oldest sons diagnosis of ADHD did a light bulb turn on and she realized she could also have ADHD herself. After diagnosis of not only her, her oldest son and also her middle son she set out to learn as much about ADHD as she could in an effort to help both her sons and herself. In doing so, she found that ADHD, ADHD learning, and how ADHD impacts relationships was her passion filled purpose. The year following her oldest son was able to grow 32 reading levels and two entire grade levels in one school year.
Many don’t realize that ADHD can wreak lifelong havoc if it is left unchecked. She began talking to many people who know many more things than she does, and reading as many books as she could. She not only learned a lot about herself and her own children but learned enough that she felt she should share her information with anyone who might need it. On the personal side, Lacy is a single mother who resides in the heart of Michigan raising her now 3 little boys (J, C, and G, she leaves off full names for privacy reasons). She attends church, reads her bible as often as her ADHD brain will let her, listens to audible as much as she can and gets outdoors as often as Michigan weather will allow. You can reach her via e-mail at [email protected].
