Parenting a
Child With ADHD

When a child is diagnosed with ADHD, parents often find themselves in a challenging and overwhelming situation. They may feel unsure of how to manage their child's symptoms, handle behavioral issues, and provide the necessary support to help their child thrive.

 

Parent coaching can be an excellent option for parents to gain insight, support, and practical tools to cope with the diagnosis. A qualified ADHD Coach can help parents better understand their child's ADHD, including how it impacts their behavior, learning, and social interactions.

 

Additionally, it can provide parents with a safe space to process their feelings and emotions surrounding the diagnosis and any associated challenges.

By addressing their concerns and working through their emotions, parents can improve their own mental health and well-being, which, in turn, benefits their child's development and progress. Overall, seeking support through coaching can be a valuable investment for parents, enabling them to become better equipped to support their child's growth and development. ​ In addition, coaching can also offer practical strategies and tools for coping with the challenges of raising a child with ADHD. Parents can learn effective communication techniques, behavior management strategies, and organizational skills that can help them support their child's success at home and in school.  ​ Another significant benefit of parent coaching is that it can help parents better understand themselves, their parenting styles, and their relationships with their child. By gaining insight into their strengths, weaknesses, and triggers, parents can become more self-aware and intentional in their interactions with their child. Additionally, this can help parents identify and address any underlying issues or stressors that may be affecting their ability to parent effectively. ​ Ultimately, seeking support through ADHD Parent Coaching can benefit the entire family unit. By learning how to effectively manage their child's ADHD symptoms, parents can create a more stable and positive home environment, which can enhance their child's development and well-being. Furthermore, by improving their own mental health and well-being, parents can reduce stress, anxiety, and conflict within the family, leading to better overall family functioning and cohesion.

How Parent Coaching Can Help

Learning from

lessons of the past:

 

We all have experiences from our past that shape our parenting style and approach. Together, we explore your past experiences and identify valuable lessons that can inform your current and future parenting decisions.

Quieting the self-judgment

and self-blame:

 

Parents often struggle with feelings of self-doubt, guilt, and shame. I work with you to develop strategies for recognizing and quieting the self-judgment and self-blame, so you can move forward with confidence and self-compassion.

Deepening your

relationship with your child:

 

The parent-child relationship is the foundation for a healthy and happy family. I help you identify ways to deepen your connection with your child and build a stronger, more positive relationship.

Stepping off your child's

emotional roller-coaster and learning how to offer healthy support from the sidelines:

 

Parenting can be an emotional journey, and it's important to learn how to support your child without getting swept up in their emotional highs and lows. Together we develop strategies for healthy support from the sidelines while still maintaining your own emotional balance.

As an ADHD Coach, I provide you with a safe space when things don't go as planned:

Parenting can be a roller coaster ride, and unexpected challenges can arise at any moment. I offer a safe and supportive space for you to express your fears, concerns, and challenges without fear of judgment or criticism.

Finding hope and gratitude

in today and letting the

worry of tomorrow fade:

 

Parenting can be stressful and overwhelming, but it's important to find joy and gratitude in the present moment. I help you develop mindfulness practices that can shift your focus away from worry and anxiety towards gratitude and hope.

Establishing parenting

goals in the best interest

of you and your child:

 

As a parent, it's important to have clear goals and intentions for your parenting journey. I work with you to identify your priorities and values and develop parenting goals that align with your vision for your family.

Regaining self-care,

healthy living, and joy:

 

Parenting can be all-consuming, but it's important to prioritize self-care, healthy living, and joy. I help you identify self-care strategies that work for you and develop healthy habits that support your overall well-being.

Developing communication skills based on listening

and mutual respect:

 

Effective communication is essential to successful parenting. I work with you to develop active listening skills and strategies for communicating with your child based on mutual respect and understanding.

Creating a more peaceful home environment:

 

A peaceful home environment is essential for the well-being of both parents and children. I work with you to identify sources of stress and tension in your home and develop strategies for creating a more harmonious and peaceful environment.

There is no way to be a perfect parent and a million ways to be a good one.
