In this episode of the Parenting ADHD Podcast, I’m talking with Dr. Sharon Saline about what your child with ADHD wishes you knew, in conjunction with the release of her new book. We’re talking about how most kids feel like parents aren’t hearing what they’re saying, and vice versa. Dr. Saline offers many strategies to communicate better, for a more successful and joyful family life.
“Stop. Take a ‘time apart.’ Think things over when everyone’s a little calmer. Then you act.”
