Can Parenting REALLY be Sane? YES!
Sanity School Live for Parents is what I needed 30 years ago! Modern parents have to make many more decisions than is fun. This workshop program is a gentle nudge to develop a relationship with your child while parenting.
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 requires more emotional resilience. Just try to apply your parents’ techniques with your ‘connected’ child who lives with the unmanageable 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 manage our sense of family chaos 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.
The success of family management plans for children with
ADHD challenges rest on
the education and involvement of their parents.
