Teen defiance is a shape shifter. Sometimes, it’s sarcastic backtalk or a covert broken rule. Other times, it escalates to screaming matches, slammed doors, and desperate tears — both yours and your child’s.
Some level of teen defiance is developmentally normal, and should be expected. That’s doubly true for teens with attention deficit disorder (ADHD or ADD), who may be more biologically prone to oppositional characteristics. But when your teen’s negative behavior starts to control your life, it’s time to change your parenting approach and tackle defiance in loving, productive ways. Learn how to begin with this advice from Arthur Robin, Ph.D., as discussed in the Attention Talk Radio episode “Defiant ADHD Teens” moderated by Jeff Copper of DIG Coaching.
