How to Raise Your Spirited Child

This ADHD Experts webinar occurred solely as a live event and was originally broadcast on March 11, 2021.

Episode Description

When your child has ADHD, life can feel like a constant crisis. You do not know what the day (or night) may bring. Will the morning go smoothly or erupt into an uproar? Why does the simple act of going to bed require 30 reminders and two hours of conflict? How do you get your child to truly listen and work with you? And despite all the challenges associated with raising a child with ADHD, is it possible to remain calm, meet your own basic needs, and even spend time with your partner or other significant adults in your life?

Join Dr. Mary Sheedy Kurcinka, internationally recognized author of Raising Your Spirited Child and licensed parent educator, to discover how small actions can build a foundational routine that brings peace and calm to your family – even in the midst of a chaotic time.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How to achieve predictability during the day to eliminate morning, bedtime, and mealtime battles
  • How to help your child “hear” you
  • How to overcome obstacles to consistency that throw your life into chaos
  • Effective strategies to create predictable pockets of time during the day to re-center and calm, set your body clock, and win cooperation from your child.
