SUMMARY

You’re hiding in your closet, and tears roll down your cheek. You tell yourself, “This is just too hard, and I can’t do it.” Feelings of suffocation and hopelessness fill your chest as you grieve the fact that your child with ADHD feels extremely challenging. You wonder if this will be your reality for the next decade or two. It’s heavy, and we’ve been there. But we promise it doesn’t have to stay there. It is possible to calm the chaos in your home from challenging behavior. In this episode, we sit down with Author Dayna Abraham to explore finding a parenting framework that helps create harmony in your home and redefining the idea of a “challenging child.”
