SHINING WITH ADHD 

EPISODE #132: Building Resilience: Supporting Kids with ADHD + Anxiety

SUMMARY

It seems like being a parent is always trying to find the goldilocks in every situation. We want to be gentle but not too permissive; we want to be child-centered but not forget ourselves. We want to be open with our kids but want to maintain healthy boundaries. The list goes on and on. The experience is only heightened with ADHD, especially when there is a second challenge or diagnosis in play. Today, we’re talking about ADHD and Anxiety. Anxiety is 2nd most common disorder that is diagnosed in kids with ADHD. According to the CDC, around 33% of kids with ADHD have anxiety. And the more concerning fact is that only around 60% of children who have an anxiety disorder ever go on to receive treatment. That means there are many kids out there suffering and not getting the tools they need to cope with their worries. In this episode, Lori from our TCC teams shares her knowledge on supporting kids with ADHD and Anxiety.
