I call it the Double Whammy of ADHD when your teenagager has ADHD it makes parenting more difficult.  Register now for this free training  set for Wednesday, February 5 @ 7:00 PM EST!  Check out the details below!

You know this…ADHD is not some harmless, made-up, childhood diagnosis that goes away when children grow up!  As a parent preparing your teen, you need start transitioning your child from relying on the “mom system” to creating an independent system for their brain wiring without you being at center of it.  Change is hard but it MUST be planned for ADHD parents and their teens!

Is this you..

  • Do you  see the “future” quickly approaching but feel uneasy about your teen’s ability to manage it?

  • Are you doing everything you know what to do to support your teen at home and it’s STILL not enough?

  • Do fear your child’s future in any of the important areas like… work, school and relationships?

  • Does your child have great skills but seem unable to apply them in real-life situations?

  • Can you even imagine your teen taking responsibility for their own life?

  • Are you tired of being a ‘nag” but know if you stop, it will ALL fall apart?

  • Is what you’re currently doing NOT working and only leading to MORE frustration for you BOTH?

Listen, I KNOW how hard parents work!  You are doing everything you can to help manage your teen’s ADHD but sometimes it just doesn’t feel like it’s enough.  ADHD originates with your child’’s unique brain wiring but expresses itself in a social environment that can be unforgiving.  When you and your teen grasp HOW the ADHD brain works… you both can work together to DESIGN a plan that compliments the unique brain wiring and supports growth towards the things important to the future!

Not only is your teen frustrated but real-life implications arise from undiagnosed, unmanaged, or worse, untreated ADHD.   In this 3 minute TedX Talk by Alan Brown, Alan describes (by the numbers) what happens to adults when ADHD is left untreated.

The stats are there.  Alan’s telling video shares what can happen to young adults with untreated ADHD.   But, you, as a parent can do much to improve the odds for a more productive and satisfying life for your teen before they head out the door but NOW while still under your roof!

Real support can be designed and implemented once you understand HOW the ADHD brain works… and the unique brain functions your teen manifests.  Understanding executive functions and how ADHD affects those function can go a long way in implementing strategies that set them up for success, not frustration.

DeShawn’s teleseminar is probably a waste of your time and you don’t need to go on reading IF:

  • You and your teen’s communication has broken down to the extent that you are not talking or has moved out to live with someone else.  This teleseminar requires your relationship be intact and that you are connected on a daily basis where everyday living impacts can be implemented by you both.  Parents will play a role in this process but it will be a different type of interaction needed.

  • You and your teen have a system that allows you to check in on progress made, rather than direct action, on school assignments.  Including a set responsibilities that you and your teen have broken down and discussed that everyone has agreed to follow.

  • You and your child are happy with the current parent/child dynamic and you, as the parent, you will continue to make executive decisions for your child.

Both you and your teen can succeed by understanding the unique brain wiring, how ADHD impacts important brain functions like short-term memory, time perception, and emotional regulation, and decide to create an atmosphere that actually “works” for, rather than against.

In the teleseminar, DeShawn will share…

  • How ADHD, when left unmanaged or mis-managed, impacts the quality of life (THIS is totally scary stuff).

  • The 6 essential keys to understand how ADHD impacts learning and living (allowing you to stop blaming you or your teen and start working together).

  • Understanding how executive function, skills, and motivation are linked together differently with ADHD teens and it’s impact on parenting (allowing you to work with your teen to design a plan to work).

  • The importance of external systems in ADHD in organization and management.

  • Other health conditions that often accompany ADHD diagnosis (Be on the lookout).

  • Important educational supports that get assignments done more effectively for their brain wiring (Strategies to use that work for ADHD teens).
