In Their Shoes
A Group for Parents of Kids with ADHD
Parenting can be hard. Parenting a child with ADHD is even harder. The battles you have with your child leave you feeling tired, irritable, overwhelmed, and doubting yourself. This means ADHD has been taking over your energy, emotions, and patience AND you're worried about your child – in school, at home, and everywhere else. It all feels like a disaster and so many things are a struggle with your child. Not to mention, the reactions from other people in social situations can be judgemental. All of this means you’re are at a loss. You don't know what to do to support them; it's as clear as mud.
And here you are. You have come this far, so that tells me you haven’t been able to find anything that works, and it is likely that you have been on this journey to get unstuck for awhile. More importantly, I want you to know it is figuroutable - it is worth learning about what is going to make life better for you and your child. I am happy for you because I know the life-changing experience of finally getting the support and resources that you need and the impact it can have on your life!

You need to know what you’re up against and learn how to make it your friend. Understand the aspects of ADHD through the most current research-based information. You need to be able to make sense of what is happening with your child and how it affects you and the rest of the family. We will explore diagnosis, medication, sleep, nutrition, and other essential pieces of information about ADHD!
Calm the Conflict
Contrary to how you might be feeling, your kid is not giving you a hard time on purpose. They are having a hard time - A LOT OF THE TIME!
The more you focus on their behaviour, the more you will feel the need to control it. The essentials of communication will be shared, along with proactive problem solving tips. Conflict can be reduced and managed to help you step into those uncertain moments, feeling steady, and calm regardless of what is happening.
Confidence cannot be bought; it must be won. Examine the role of ADHD in your child’s life and how it affects you so you can identify strategies to regulate yourself and parent with compassion. Increase your mastery of techniques to move you toward your ultimate goal of supporting your child and helping them feel good about themselves. Learn how to be their guide, teacher, cheerleader, nurturer, advocate, and accountability coach.
Executive function skills are a major part of ADHD.
Unravel the symptoms and obstacles of ADHD so you can clearly see what gets in your child's way. You have to know these parts before you can effectively cultivate their empowerment through honest and timely feedback and behaviour systems.
Put systems and routines into place that will scaffold your child to develop skills they will need for independence in their adult life.
Change will happen from you first, as the parent which means you are the one that needs the information, tools, and strategies to spark the changes to last them a lifetime. Learn valuable how to foster school success and collaborate with teachers constructively.
Early intervention gives kids with ADHD the best chance of accepting themselves and developing skills to lead them to a successful adulthood.
