Adolescence is brutal — for teenagers and their parents! On top of raging hormones and escalating academic demands, teens with ADHD are navigating executive skill challenges that contribute to a “perfect storm” that overpowers most parents’ standard parenting strategies.

You need a new tool set. And that begins with understanding how your teen’s brain is developing — and how ADHD impacts her changing brain. Second, you need to learn new strategies for working with your teen without driving him away. The good news: Time-tested approaches exist to help your teen transition to adulthood successfully. It’s just a matter of learning and practicing them — together.
