On-Demand Parenting Webinars

“Shout, Stomp, Slam! How to Communicate and Connect with a Child Who Doesn’t Want to Talk” [Video Replay & Podcast #240]

In this hour long webinar on-demand, learn strategies to defuse potentially explosive situations with your child, with Kirk Martin.

Episode Description

We’ve all been there. Your child with ADHD comes home from school, drained and frustrated. You ask him to do something simple like take the dog for a walk or you offer a little help as he struggles with homework. And he lashes out, ignores you, or just shuts down.

How do you connect with a child or teen who doesn’t want to talk with you — and who is defensive, angry, or unresponsive? How can you de-escalate these situations and re-establish domestic tranquility? Here, parenting expert Kirk Martin offers practical strategies for turning these potentially explosive situations into opportunities for building a trusting relationship with your child.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Strategies for responding instead of reacting to your behaviorally challenged child
  • How to lead your child to a calm place by fostering emotional regulation
  • How to teach your child to manage his frustration and disappointment without yelling
  • How to get on the same page as your spouse or handle the potential conflict as a single parent
  • How to de-stress the school and homework experience
