In this episode of the Parenting ADHD Podcast, I’m talking with behavior analyst, Holly Moses, about why looking at behavior as “bad” isn’t the best parenting approach for kids with ADHD. Often, the gap between expectation and capability leads to unwanted (“bad”) behavior. Listen in to learn effective strategies to elicit appropriate behavior, and to effectively address unwanted behavior. Holly and I will adjust your mindset for behavior so you can be the parent your child needs.

“How heavy is what we’re asking for? Is the weight of what we’re asking worth the reward to our kids?”
