ADHD Family Coaching: Peace At Home
In-Person Coaching and Virtual Coaching Offered
I was a wonderful parent before I had kids.
I was an expert on why everyone else was having problems with theirs. Then..I had two children of my own.
Living with real children was humbling. Every morning I would tell myself, “Today is going to be different.” and every morning was a variation of the one before.
“You gave her more than me!”
“That’s the green cup. I want the orange one.”
“Mom, this oatmeal looks like throw up.”
“I won’t go to my room.”
Parenting is tough.
They finally worn me down. And though it was the last thing I ever dreamed I’d be doing, I joined a parent support group.
The meeting was intriguing. The subject was “children’s feelings” and the two hours sped by. I came home with my head spinning with new thoughts and a notebook full of undigested ideas.
Once I was aware of what I was doing or not doing…I was determined to change.
I wasn’t sure how to go about this change.
What helped me was putting myself in my children’s shoes.
Suppose I were a child affected by ADHD who was struggling academically, disorganized, unable to plan, frustrated at school, bored?
And suppose.. I wanted that all important grown up in my life to know what I was feeling?
Over the next two weeks I tuned in to what my children might be experiencing, and when I did, my words seemed to follow naturally.
I get it. Parenting a teen affected by ADHD is difficult.
There are so many things to worry about. Driving. Sex. Drugs. Alcohol. Peer Pressure. SnapChat. Bullying. Grades.
You may worry about their self-esteem and self-confidence.
You’re not alone.
I have something that may help.
I’m Here To Help. Together, Let’s Make Peace At Home Happen.
