Free Webinar Replay: Your Teen Is Not Lazy! How to Best Motivate an Adolescent with ADHD

In this hour-long webinar-on-demand, learn how to build your teen’s self-reliance with Adam Price, Ph.D.

 

ADHD kills motivation. Most research conducted on motivating a child with ADHD centers on the brain, and rightfully so. However, other important factors also impact a person’s drive and determination — ones that parents can influence. Here, learn how to become your child’s biggest ally as he or she develops greater independence and discovers the keys to self-motivation. Also learn to strengthen the most important resource you have in the quest for self-reliance: the parent-child relationship.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  1. the psychological link between ADHD and motivation
  2. the three Cs of motivation: competence, control, connection
  3. how parents’ best intentions may backfire
  4. how to avoid the trap of over-parenting a child or teen with ADHD
  5. how to enhance your child’s autonomy by setting structure without control

  1. My son is a young high school graduate, July birthday, with ADD. He is having problems deciding on a major and is leaving university to go to community college to get his basics. We are fine with that but want to know how do we support him.

    Also, he is not motivated at all to get a job. Is that too much to expect him to juggle school (12 hours or so) with a part time job?

    1. I tried to answer this question during the webinar, but in case you did not get a chance to tune in, when kids I work with need to take time off from college the trifecta is usually therapy, work, and classes at a community college. These kids want to get back to school, so they are willing to comply. Your situation is a little different, so you might not have as much leverage but your son might get a lot out of working.
