We share a lot about raising kids with ADHD, but how does parenting change as our children grow up? Parenting ADHD tweens and teens presents new challenges. From supporting your child as they strive for independence, to helping them discover their own solutions when they encounter problems, navigating each new season takes time. In reality, we think the strategy takes a big shift but connection is still the key! In this episode, Dr. Carrie Jackson shares her top tips for parenting tweens and teens with ADHD.
Dr. Carrie is a licensed child psychologist based in San Diego, California, working with parents of teens with ADHD. She enjoys working with families, children, and teens with ADHD in her private practice and sharing evidence-based information online for families to access. In her free time, she enjoys staying active and trying new restaurants.
