The emotional fallout from remote learning — a frustrating experience for many children with ADHD — is particularly extreme now because the pandemic has severely limited the social and extracurricular activities that typically allow kids to blow off steam. Meanwhile, parents are nearing a breaking point as they juggle multiple roles while also providing support for their children’s mental health and navigating increased stress levels.
Now more than ever, parents need discipline approaches that go beyond shouting, timeouts, and punishment. They need productive, practical strategies to handle today’s outbursts, meltdowns, defiance, and strong emotions. Here, Dr. David Anderson will provide immediate, evidence-based strategies to improve your interaction with your child or teen and manage his or her problematic behaviors. He will explain how the right discipline approach can not only promote desired behaviors but also preserve the loving bond with your child.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- How the pandemic has exacerbated the expression of ADHD symptoms
- Techniques to increase positive interactions with your child or teen
- Effective discipline strategies to manage problematic behavior at home
- Suggestions for adapting discipline techniques to the challenges of online schooling
