ADHD is Not a Problem of KNOWING What To Do – It’s a Problem of DOING What You Know

Ok, school started. Back to the grind.   For some parents, it’s a relief to have the kids back to a routine. But for others, it’s a daily nightmare of prodding them along to reach the potential you know they have. I wish I had the magic bullet for you to convince your child that if they JUST create and stick to a realistic routine, stay off their devices, get enough sleep, eat well, and exercise, the year would go so smoothly! … Read more

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 it’s 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 is not 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.
