Alternative Solutions for Parenting ADHD Kids Well
Do you have a child who keeps you wondering if he will ever grow up?
Do the teachers tell you “Maybe she should be tested”?
Is your child becoming the center of attention in every event, holding up the family and distressing you about almost every task?
I offer parents KEYS for training ADHD kids that can work for your child!
Painful daily routines disrupted by a lack of focus, concentration or impulsivity can drain the family and make parents tired. Parents think, “I am so frustrated with this kid! How can I get my kid to . . .” and on it goes.
You may think, “Should I put my child on medication? Isn’t there any alternative treatment for my ADHD child?
These questions alone can cause parents to over think and lay awake in bed at night, worrying about your child.
Parents get overwhelmed with their child’s behavior, and attempts to find ways to reduce hyperactivity, increase focus and calm their child.
There is so much information to wade through—“How to find what works for my ADHD child? Wading through tons of updated information on ADHD can be exhausting and feel confusing when deicing on treatments. Often parent feel, “I have tried everything.” New information and research reveals that when considering child conduct, “mature self-agency in a child . . . [is] a significant protective factor” in preventing anti-social and aggressive behaviour.
If what you are doing isn’t working, try something new.

According to leading ADHD expert and clinical psychologist Joel Nigg, parents feeling overwhelmed with parenting an ADHD child can improve with counselling, and perhaps reduce that sense of overwhelm. He cautions that parents can prevent improvement or even cause a downward spiral in their ADHD child if they are not able to correct negative parenting styles. [i]
Often, our child becomes the “hub” of the family instead of the parents, distressing the entire family unit. There are some tools and skills parents can learn to improve that focus and have the child take a more effective position within the family, to ensure your child has the tools to reach their highest potential.
