ADHD: Managing Your Emotions and Everyone Else’s… UGH!   

An Interview with Jeff Copper of Attention Talk Radio

If you realize the challenge that emotions play in your or your child’s life, this is a show you won’t want to miss.

In this interview, Jeff Copper and I discuss the importance of practicing calm and its benefits for you and your child.

Calm really works. It is powerful. When we can first calm down, we can engage differently.

If you find yourself feeling agitated or repeatedly frustrated with the same issues, it may be that an appropriate boundary has not been set.

Learn how practicing calm helps you to set and stick to boundaries that you are comfortable with and feel good about.

Calm is your Power.
