The human brain is a pattern recognition machine. I coach parents to recognize and substitute undesirable family patterns with more positive interactions, such as connection, communication, patience, understanding, cooperation, and fun. The ripple effects of this heightened awareness extend outward enriching quality time at home.
"Experts recommend that healthcare providers refer parents of children younger than 12 years old for training in behavior therapy. For children younger than 6 years old, parent training in behavior management should be tried before prescribing ADHD medication.
When parents become trained in behavior therapy, they learn skills and strategies to help their child with ADHD succeed at school, at home, and in relationships. Learning and practicing behavior therapy requires time and effort, but it has lasting benefits for the child and the family."

Executive Function in the HOUSE
Adults are hustling, doing their best to keep all the balls in the air. Amidst the grind, routines gradually establish themselves: chaotic bedtimes, tricky mornings, bumpy transitions, and poor communication can become the norm. These ingrained patterns, over time, influence lots of dynamics. Do you observe these tricky moments happening with greater frequency? Want to shift gears? You have landed in the right place!
"I'm catching the kids being good a lot more. And I'm thinking about predictable scenarios at home. I'm way less reactive. Thank you!"
