There can be no debate that parenting kids with ADHD (and/or autism) is hard. Super hard! However, there are many approaches that can soften the edges and make this special brand of parenthood a little easier, and a lot more successful. Brian R. King, aka The Compassionate Dad, teaches parents to be a student of your child — to let your child’s truth guide you. It’s all about compassionate parenting — compassion for your child, and for yourself — and it’s powerful for parents of kids with ADHD.
In this episode of the Parenting ADHD Podcast, Brian and I discuss compassionate parenting, how to implement it, and the power that it holds for families of kids with ADHD.
