Parenting complex kids is different, even more so when you have complex issues, yourself! When your child has ADHD, anxiety, LD or related challenges, you want to support, guide, and empower them to take responsibility for themselves. But we get tired of repeating ourselves, losing our cool, micro-managing (especially when managing is hard for us, too), and triggering defensive reactions. According to the seasoned parenting educators of ImpactADHD, you can shift those behaviors by parenting with a coach-approach — a simple and effective way to improve communication and guide your family from chaos to calm. In this engaging, interactive webinar, Elaine Taylor-Klaus and Diane Dempster will teach a few fundamental strategies that you can use right away to cultivate independence and begin to foster ownership in even the most complex kids.
