ADHD and Teenagers: How to Protect the Fragile Ego
Tue, April 18, 2017, 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM EDT
At times, raising a teenager can seem like a civil war that doesn't have clear opposing sides. Wanting to give guidance, you try to create structure, discipline and motivation. The teenager resists rules to avoid your control and strives to promote independence despite their own obstacles. Now on top of that, your teen has ADD. They are struggling in school, have poor impulse control that leads them into trouble and they now identified themselves as a bad student or a troublemaker.
Every day is struggle for them to eat well, take their meds, tell the truth, ask for help, and… all you want to do is help! We need a Win/Win!
This webinar will give you tools to see their struggles, gain their trust and attention then empower them to help themselves.
You can provide assistance without enabling.
How? … by paying close attention to their ego.
Your children have real struggles and deserve credit for their resilience and persistence. They also need to feel comfortable accepting their struggles and asking for help and/or patience from others.
This workshop addressing important questions such as:
- How do I get my teen out of the house on time?
- When will they become self disciplined?
- How do I get my child to admit when they are wrong?
- What do I have to do get some respect from them?
- What is a good way to approach them about their learning style and ADD?
- How do I control myself when my teenager is making me angry?
- How can I let them know I love them if I am always disciplining them?
You will leave this 1.5 hour seminar with ideas on how to cooperate with your children, behavioral tools for structuring success, an awareness over common obstacles for your ADHD teenager. There will also be a question and answer section to discuss your child’s needs.
