ADHD and Executive Function challenges involve more than just difficulty with inattentiveness, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. For many children, it involves struggling with managing their emotions, their ability to plan and carry out their goals, and much more. This usually affects the entire family.
What I love about working with parents?
Having parents share their stories of joy and success as the calm, laughter, and connection returns to their relationships with their children. Parenting isn’t easy! And it can be even more complex when you have a child who learns and behaves differently than is expected. The insights and tools I offer can shift the family dynamic to build children’s confidence, resilience, and grit as they face school and life challenges.
My Parenting Philosophy:
Parent the child YOU have! I believe that each child who enters into our lives is creative, resourceful, and whole. Our job is to help them become the best version of who they are meant to be. It’s not always easy to see them struggle and know how to support without enabling their development. The key lies in knowing what they are truly capable of at the moment, and how to help them develop the skills they really need to thrive.
Parents are often given little more than some reading material, general advice, and perhaps medication when children are diagnosed with ADHD, Executive Function challenges, or Anxiety. Research shows that parent education and coaching are crucial components in the treatment of children with ADHD and other challenging behaviors.
Are you and your parenting partner on different pages?
Even when two adults love and respect one another, their philosophies and strategies for parenting may be very different. We were each raised with a unique experience based on who we are and how our parents interacted with us. These experiences inform how we approach our parenting journey.
Whether you are co-parenting in the same home or different homes, disagreements in parenting beliefs and styles can cause tremendous stress for both the parents and the children. it is vital for the mental health and success of your child that you agree on the boundaries and expectations you have for your children. The difference in approaches can lead to confusion, depression, anxiety, and defiance on the part of the child.
Through coaching, we can help you work through your differences and use a more collaborative approach to parenting your children.
Parenting Workshops give us a head start:
My staff of trained parent coaches and I are available for private coaching sessions. I always suggest that you participate in the Learning, Motivation, and Behavior: Impact on Kids with ADHD and Executive Function Challenges© workshop and the Calm and Connected: Parenting the Child You Have© workshop before private sessions (available In-Person, Live Webinar, and On-Demand eCourse), however, this is not a pre-requisite. These workshops will allow us to work on a deeper level to implement the strategies and tools discussed in the workshops.
Parent Coaching sessions can be held in-person (in Boulder, Co.)
or virtually via phone or video worldwide.
