High Parent Giving/Low Expectations - ADHD Dude - Ryan Wexelblatt

 

Do you know a common problem I often see in families of kids with ADHD that they often don't recognize until I point it out?

⚬Parents prioritizing academic performance/grades over character education.
⚬A worldwide lack of practical information for parents of kids with ADHD.
⚬Bad advice from the child psychology field in the1990s.
⚬The normalization of giving kids early & excessive access to screen-based devices & social media.
𝗛𝗲𝗿𝗲'𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗱𝗲𝗮𝗹:
⚬In order to be the most effective parent for your son with ADHD you need to understand the role ADHD plays in how his brain works. Yes, every kid's brain is unique and there are some common characteristics about ADHD that many parents do not realize. (𝘊𝘩𝘦𝘤𝘬 𝘰𝘶𝘵 𝘮𝘺 𝘷𝘪𝘥𝘦𝘰𝘴 𝘵𝘰 𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘯 𝘮𝘰𝘳𝘦 𝘢𝘣𝘰𝘶𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴.)
⚬I have purchased 5 online parenting programs and have read countless (ADHD & general) parenting books. 𝘕𝘰𝘯𝘦 talk about the need to cultivate flexibility or teach the necessity of reciprocity in relationships in order to build good social skills..
⚬Because I only specialize in ADHD I have developed proactive solutions for the most common behavioral challenges I see in families which I'm going to share with you in my next webinar series, Raising Great Dudes.
