The symptoms of ADHD often lead to behavior problems that make parenting very difficult. Our children and teens sometimes lie and throw tantrums. They can be defiant and aggressive, forgetful and disorganized. Typical parenting approaches don’t seem to work, leaving us frustrated and exhausted. How do we help our children and adolescents change these difficult behaviors so they can more fully realize their sweet and creative sides? How can we help to boost their self-esteem — and also our own joy of parenting?
Because ADHD is a neurological disorder, difficult behaviors are sometimes our child’s way of telling us something isn’t working for them. They are confused, overwhelmed, tired, or afraid. To change their response away from lying, defiance, and emotional outbursts, a new approach is necessary.
In this webinar, you will learn to solve behavior problems with a multi-tiered approach:
- Understand the brain science driving ADHD behaviors
- Avoid difficult behaviors by using effective strategies in preventative parenting
- Shape your child’s environment in a way that shapes their behavior
- Take actionable steps to demonstrate the behavior you want
- Increase your compassion, humor, and joy while parenting difficult behaviors
