When ADHD is not treated correctly, families may experience a higher level of dysfunction between spouses, siblings and different combinations of the family unit. The balance and harmony in a home maybe shifted causing stress, fighting and misunderstandings, making the home life unpleasant and stressful. This is where an ADHD Coach can help:)
When working with families, I focus on coaching the parents first. Parents, you have the greatest impact on your child's success...period. I understand how challenging it is to parent an ADHD child and perhaps manage your own ADHD, but with love, patience and an open mind to try a different approach everything is possible! Parents MUST be willing to self reflect and strive to evolve with their child to achieve harmony.
For families with teens, I work with the parents and form a partnership with the teen to help identify their desired goals. Often the teens goals and parents goals may be different but together we strive to restore balance, harmony and trust between all family members and help everyone feel success. Coaching families involves ALL members of the family unit, not just the child with ADHD.
Do you or your spouse have ADHD? If so, you may be experiencing some challenges in your relationship.
Let me help you and your partner identify key area's of tension and help shine an ADHD light on your struggles.
With patience, mutual respect and a greater understanding about how ADHD symptoms are playing a role in your relationship, you can embrace your differences and rekindle what brought you together in the first place!
Working with couples requires both partners to reflect on how they are contributing to the tension, it is not just one partner or the other, it is both. Together we will laugh and learn to grow without pointing fingers or placing blame on each other:)
