Kirsten Milliken, Ph.D., ACC 

“Reasons for Recess”

In this awesome interview, Kirsten explains how:

      • The best kind of play costs nothing and really only has one main requirement — imagination.
      • Time spent playing make-believe actually helped children develop a critical cognitive skill called executive function. Executive function has a number of different elements, but a central one is the ability to self-regulate. Kids with good self-regulation are able to control their emotions and behavior, resist impulses, and exert self-control and discipline.
      • Children are less fidgety and more on-task when they have recess, and children with ADHD (attention deficit/hyperactivity syndrome) are among those who benefit most.

Rick Green
“Your Child Has The Answers
To All Your Parenting Concerns”

Rick shares great inside information explaining:

      • When ADHD folks are interested in something we are unstoppable. And with the rapid pace of change, hoping that your child gets a ‘proper education’ and ‘lands a good steady job’ is actually limiting their lives to what you know to be true.
      • There are three things your child needs from you. 1. Love. 2. Support. (Which comes from love.) And 3. Trust. (Which also comes from love.)
      • Rather than having more things to do, or worry about, it’s time to do less. To relax. Or at least control that desire we all have to ‘save’ our children. By letting go of expectations and dreams, you allow kids who will never ‘fit in’ to become who they truly are and be a unique contribution to the world.

Rick rants about the desire to fit in and be “normal”. What does that even mean? And why strive for it? Find out Here FREE! Value:$5.95
