EPISODE #126: Say Less (no, really!) and Other Tips to Support Your Child’s Listening.

SUMMARY

We can hear ourselves now trying to yell upstairs or get our kid’s attention over the TV or tablet. We are all guilty of the “drive-by directions” trap when we want our kids to listen. None of these seem to work, and we just get louder and louder. Our tone gets angrier and angrier. Obvious ending? It doesn’t work. Getting kids to listen is tough; getting kids with ADHD to listen is even more challenging. Remember, your kids want to do well, so they aren’t playing a game of who can make mom the most mad. Their unique wiring requires a different communication strategy to get cooperation. In this episode, we share four tips to get your child with ADHD to listen without yelling. 

These take practice, but we know you will notice a more calm environment as you incorporate them into your home! 

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. 

AFFILIATE INFORMATION

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 member 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.  Just click the link and use CHILDHOOD40 in all caps to get the discount. Happy eating!
