Parenting and ADHD:

Balancing Emotions and Discipline to Build Healthy Relationships

ADHD is more than difficulty remaining seated or maintaining focus in a classroom. Self awareness and behavioral regulation create obstacles in relationships with peers, siblings, and parents.  Parenting a child with ADHD is no easy task.  Monitoring your own emotions is crucial in building and repairing your relationship, especially during a conflict. Integrating methods to match your child's learning style while balancing emotions with clear expectations can provide the structure necessary for effective, meaningful discipline. Ultimately, we want to embrace opportunities for independence in decision making by teaching how to make the "right" choice and how to appreciate and recover from failure, including the emotions involved in each scenario. In this presentation we will focus on the tool of communication in building trust and respect, the roles of anger and blame, and the importance of self-care.  Presenter: Chris Nealy, MSW, LCSW of Halcyon Mental Health, PLLC.

This workshop is $10 per person.
