Can Parenting REALLY be Sane? YES!
is what I needed 30 years ago!
The Sanity School parenting program is designed for real change – it’s not tips and tricks. Parents who want real change may feel the difference in six weeks!
Modern parents have to make many more decisions than is fun. Learn the Sanity School method and how to apply this program at home using a gentle nudge.
Develop a life-long relationship with your child while parenting.
In actual practice, parents become more skilled in communicating with their parenting partner as together they coordinate their new and collaborative parenting practices.
Raising a complex child is, well, complex. Parents’ default is to return to the skills of and memories of their own experiences as a child. A ‘connected’ society values emotional resilience. Just try to apply your parents’ techniques with your ‘connected’ child who lives with the unmanageable emotional distractions of social media.
‘Why isn’t my child motivated like I was?’ Or, ‘uh, oh, my child behaves a lot like me.’
What can I do in partnership with my spouse to reboot our family from chaos to sanity as we prepare our child for the realities of the world?
Dr. Sam Goldstein writes that parent compliance is a key challenge in their work with families with complex kids.
Maureen Nolan, LPC, MACC, NCC is an Atlanta area ADHD/Executive Function and Attention coach and a therapist. She specializes in working with parents with kids on the LD/Spectrum by using the coach approach to parenting, Sanity School for Parents. She recommends parents commit to a 6-session parenting reboot by scheduling their own personal and private sessions or the workshop series. Parents’ commitment to private sessions solidifies a truly focused opportunity to learn and then to apply the Sanity School decision-making and communication process. Atlanta area doctors refer couples to Maureen for parenting instruction in family life with challenging children. In the privacy of personal sessions, parents will lean ‘into the bones‘ of their family needs. Together, we move deeper into the history of their own parenting models and then into the core of how to change their in-the-moment challenges at home. Using this personal model of the private Sanity School presentation, parents have the flexibility to adapt the six sessions according to their family schedules.
Additionally, Maureen presents the 6-week in-person parenting workshop series twice a year. In the intense, 6 consecutive weeks she teaches the Sanity School coach approach to parenting. Sanity School for Parents is designed to radically improve the lives of parents dealing with children with ADHD and related challenges. With this reality-based coach approach training, parents coping with complex kids become happier, more confident and successful. Private sessions are available for workshop participants upon request to go deeper.
And, as a therapist, specializing in neuro-diverse life challenges for 13 years, Maureen is also available for therapeutic support for parents who want something extra.
The success of family management
with children challenged with ADHD
rests on the education and involvement of their parents.
