Parent to neurodivergent children and autistic adult, Amanda Diekman outlines a parenting approach that finally lowers the bar for the whole family, enabling the equilibrium of the home to be restored.
Low-demand parenting allows you to drop the demands and expectations that are making family life impossible and embrace the joyful freedom of living life with low demands. Full of practical resources and scripts that are easy to implement in busy everyday life, this book is your flashlight and your map to parenting your uniquely wired child. It will not tell you where to go, but it will help you find your way so you and your family thrive.
This book is a love letter to exhausted, overwhelmed parents everywhere.
At our low point, I was suffering from PTSD from my parenting journey. I had multiple kids in crisis in the midst of a global pandemic. We were deep in the darkness.
I wrote this book to people in that dark place. There is a path forward to healing, wholeness, joy, and connection. You can learn to meet your own needs without asking too much of your struggling child. You can support your vulnerable kid without punishments, rewards, endless compromising, or power battles. You can experience ease and joy in your parenting life.
It's the low-demand way.
This book is readable, practical, walking you through the approach step-by-step with 30 pages of resources at the back so you can apply what you've learned.

"An empowering and compassionate guide for parents seeking an alternative approach to raising their children. This book beautifully captures the essence of low-demand parenting, providing practical strategies to honor children's boundaries, build trust, and nurture their authentic selves.

"Drawing from her expertise and life experience as an autistic adult, Amanda Diekman's 'Low-Demand Parenting' offers a compassionate and practical guide for parents that will increase their understanding and the experience of their neurodivergent children. Amanda provides guidance to support and develop trust with all children, even those with the most difficulty dealing with the challenges of a neurotypical world. As a result, parents will be set on a path to foster genuine connections and develop a positive sense of self. ‘Low-Demand Parenting' is a breath of fresh air given all the discipline oriented approaches that confront parents, and will be a valuable resource for creating a nurturing environment where children can thrive and be celebrated for who they are.”
