If there was one thing you think society should talk more about, what would it be?

“I wish people would talk more about the pressures and the stigma of raising children with behavioural challenges and what we can do to help these beautiful families.”


Sharon Collon is the founder of The Functional Family an organisation that supports families that are affected by ADHD and behavioural issues.  


Both Sharon's husband and 2 eldest sons have ADHD.  She is passionate about providing resources and support for other parents that are buckling under the pressures of raising children that are challenging.  Sharon works with parents to help create sustainable home environments that are both functional and more joyful. Sharon helps to empower these families with the ability to advocate for their child and put an end the stigma that often comes along with the diagnosis.


This is such an interesting topic - and one that is not talked about often at all and Sharon brings a different perspective for us all to consider.
