Free Webinar Replay: How to Build Confidence in Your Child with ADHD

In this special ADHD Awareness webinar, Kirk Martin, explains how to use positive parenting techniques to build your child’s self esteem.

Research suggests that, by the age of 12, a child with ADHD will receive 20,000 more negative messages than will her neurotypical peers. Due to attention deficits, impulsivity, and executive function deficits beyond their control, kids with ADHD struggle daily to prove that they measure up to their classmates. Still, they face negative comments and consequences that may crush their self-confidence if not counterbalanced with positive parenting techniques at home.

In this webinar, learn what positive parenting looks like on a day-to-day basis, and how it works to boost self-esteem and encourage kids to pursue their goals. This session will also teach parents how to…
1. Replace the negative messages about ADHD
2. Motivate kids who don’t respond to consequences
3. Accentuate kids’ positive qualities and use their gifts and passions in purposeful ways
4. Improve attention, focus, impulse control, social skills, and executive function at school by helping teachers give our kids the tools they need to succeed
5. Stop power struggles by understanding why your kids are sometimes bossy, cheat at games, become defiant, and have meltdowns

Meet the Expert Speaker: Kirk Martin, the founder of Celebrate Calm, and his son, Casey, both have ADHD. Together, they have given 500,000 parents practical, concrete strategies to stop power struggles, meltdowns, and yelling. You can reach Kirk at www.CelebrateCalm.com.

  1. Wonderful webinar. Although I agree with absolutely everything that’s posted about this, I was wondering: what do we do when it’s already too late? When you’ve only heard negative things as a child and grew up to be an adult who feels inadequate on a daily basis and suffers from social anxiety and an extremely low self esteem. How can I start reframing the thought that I’m not good enough if I spent the first 20 years of my life feeling as if there’s something wrong with me, I have no idea how it feels to believe there isn’t. If I do tell myself there’s nothing wrong with me I keep feeling:
    ‘Yes but that’s not true. You were bullied as a kid.. they wouldn’t do that if there wasn’t something wrong with you. And look at you now? You’re 27, never had a boyfriend or kept anyone interested for more than 2 dates. Are you sure there’s nothing wrong with you? You’re 3 years away from 30, you’re not getting any younger.. you’re going to die old and alone’
    ‘Ok yes there’s something wrong with me…’

      1. Yes I’ve read that one. But it just says “accept yourself”. How? How do you accept yourself if nobody else does? It would be useful if they would give a bit more in depth information and a step by step programme on where to start accepting yourself. I have never accepted myself before. Where does one start?
