Taking a coach-approach is what ImpactADHD is all about — using coaching skills to:
- Focus on yourself, to become conscious of your role as a parent in managing ADHD, and learn strategies to be as effective as possible.
- Focus on your kids, to improve and enhance your communication with them, and actually teach them skills that will help them learn to manage themselves.
Coaching is a style of communicating that empowers people to believe in their potential, while simultaneously encouraging them to reach for it. If that’s not an ideal skill for parents to learn, I don’t know what is!
So this week, we encourage you to read some Coaching Tips on the site, and start practicing taking a coach-approach with your kids. Let us know if you’d like some help – that’s what we’re here for!
