PAP 027:

Teens with ADHD and the Reality of Motivation

with Jeff Copper, MBA, PCC, PCAC

In this episode of the Parenting ADHD Podcast, I’m talking with Jeff Copper of DIG Coaching, about teens with ADHD and the reality of motivation. I hear parents complain about their teen with ADHD and their lack of motivation very frequently. I am living this struggle myself right now, with my own teen son with ADHD. What Jeff and I talk about is why kids with ADHD lack motivation — for things like school performance —and how to both spark some motivation for the brain with ADHD, and survive that chapter of your parenthood.

Please note: while we do talk specifically about teens with ADHD in this episode, a great deal of our conversation applies for parents of younger kids with ADHD, and it also helps you prepare better for the teen years ahead of you.
