Let’s take a moment to imagine a scenario. Picture yourself in a typical workday, hustling in your office. It’s non-stop, and by the end of the day, you’re exhausted, craving nothing more than some well-deserved relaxation at home. However, as soon as you step through your front door, your boss sends you a flurry of texts with a laundry list of tasks that need immediate attention. Sounds pretty dreadful, doesn’t it? This is how homework can feel to children with ADHD. They have kept it together ALL day long at school, and their brains are tired. This turns into battles at home, kids using negative self-talk, and mountains of stress. In this episode, we are getting to the root of homework resistance and providing tools to minimize the struggle.
MEET OUR TEAM
We are Lori, Mallory, and Katie. Lori and Mallory are child psychologists, and Katie is a speech language pathologist. Most importantly, we are moms, just like you.
After working with families over a combined total of 40 years, we saw a need to provide ongoing support and education to parents raising children with ADHD.
We talk A LOT about executive function and what it takes for our kids with ADHD to plan and execute important tasks in their lives. But what about us? The mental load of parenting is real, and there is SO MUCH we have to use our executive functions for. One of those things is meal planning. What does everyone like? What will my kids eat? Which family can have dairy, and which one can’t have gluten? The list goes on and on. We know nutrition is important, but balanced meals take a backseat between school, therapy appointments, activities, and more. That is why we are loving Hungryroot. They offer “good-for-you groceries and simple recipes.” We have loved having one less thing to worry about. As always, we want to help you, so we’ve got a code for 40% off your first box.
