Episode Description

There is nothing more rewarding ­– or challenging ­– than raising a child diagnosed with ADHD. Research shows that a parent who provides unconditional support, who is always in their child’s corner, can help their child grow into a well-balanced child, behaviorally and emotionally.

But how does a parent achieve that in the face of daily meltdowns and academic and organization challenges? Dr. Russell Barkley shares important principles — culled from the latest research and 40 years of working with thousands of families — that parents can use to raise a happy, confident child with ADHD. The webinar is based on Russell Barkley’s new book, 12 Principles for Raising a Child with ADHD (2021, Guilford Publications).

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • The keys to successfully parenting a child with ADHD
  • How to use rewards and touch to encourage desired behavior
  • How to become more mindful of your child and your interactions with her
  • How to lovingly shepherd your child through life’s challenges

Listener Testimonials

“I really valued Dr. Barkley’s emphasis on acceptance and forgiveness.  Just those concepts alone were very powerful, but along with the practical steps for addressing the frustrations due to lack of executive functioning, this truly was one of the best webinars I’ve ever seen.”

“Amazing Talk. Dr. Barkley was engaging, kind and enriched our family’s life in such a short time. Thank you!”

“I felt seen and appreciated.  Parenting a child with ADHD can be so lonely, especially when schools do not have a good understanding of ADHD.”

  1. Probably the worst episode I’ve heard so far and so far I loved all of your podcasts. His words and the way he referred to children that have ADHD with lack of empathy literally made my blood boil. So sad to hear a professional telling us to “realize” what’s going WRONG with our child. I’m sorry I didn’t get that (perfect, normal) child but my disable child were some of the many ways he dare to refer to our ADHD children, to my child.
