Parenting Skills

Would You Like to Parent More Effectively? Using Attention Recovery?


Modern parents make more decisions in an hour than their parents made in one day. I believe parents can develop a positive life-long relationship with their children while parenting with emotional resilience through Attention Recovery Skills. Working together or singly, parents can become skilled in communicating with their partners as they coordinate and apply new, collaborative, and consistent parenting practices.

Raising children is complex. Parenting successfully in families challenged by ADHD symptoms requires the education and involvement of both parents. Do you default under stress to the various practices your parents used whether effective or not? The icky phrase ‘I’ll give you something to cry about‘ comes to mind. Especially problematic is applying old discipline techniques with your ‘connected’ child who lives with the emotional distractions of social media! And, even if an out-of-date practice were effective at some time, (which it never is) in our current day and time, parents need new skills.

These days, successful parenting requires emotional resilience but how do you practice good parenting where there is an atmosphere of family chaos and unresolved issues to deal with?

In my practice, parents work with me to discover and apply new attitudes, behaviors, and support systems. This is relationship-building in the heat of the moment.

Maybe you find yourself:

Wondering, “Why isn’t my child motivated like I was?”
Questioning,  “What to do about social media, social media, and social media.”
Worrying, “Oh No, my child is behaving a lot like me!”

Parents often seek help when they remember how tough life was for them when they were children, committed to not making the same mistakes as their parents did.
