Learning that you have a child with ADHD can be a shock to many parents. It was a shock to me, but also in a funny way, a relief to hear. In this episode I share our story on ADHD and hope that in me sharing mine, it helps you in yours.
Here is the link to the You Tube video on ADHD by my then, 15 year old son:
Do you feel an increasing sense of dis-connect in communities and in your life as a parent? Being truly connected to your child, family and community is hard today - there are so many distractions. In today's episode I discuss how you can become more connected with your children and family.
This is such a common problem today and dealing with child that wants to control everything is both exhausting and frustrating. In this episode I reply to a frustrated and about to lose it mum who reached out for help. I discuss a few things you can do in order to start bringing about some positive changes.
You have to first understand that you have played a part in creating the patterns of control that exist.
You can't change your child but you can change the way in which you respond to them. This is key. You are the leader and the guide.
There can be no fight if there are not two people willing to fight.
Can you pick two things that you continually fight for control of and let go of them. For example: food, clothes, a raincoat, the chair he sits on at dinner. I know, it seems ridiculous when you read it here, but these are exactly the sorts of things we usually end up fighting over!
Can you pick two things that you can ask him to start doing for himself.
Can you ask him to help you
Are you tired of your kids not listening to you?
Fed up with them being on their devices ALL. THE. TIME?
Done with nagging because it doesn't change anything except continue to drain you?
Do you feel like you never get any time to yourself?
You are not alone.
