A parent's guide to raising a child with ADHD


This webinar recording is also included in the Happy Families Premium membership

There may be no psychological condition more controversial and provocative than ADHD. At one extreme, we see some people say it doesn’t exist. Other’s say it’s a result of poor parenting. At the other end, people write books about “the ADHD advantage”, and how children can thrive in spite of – or even because of – this condition.

But for parents who are raising children with an ADHD diagnosis, their child’s behaviour can seem like a wrecking ball. Coping with the “war at home”, families often feel divided. Parents struggle to be on the same page, torn between loving their child and flipping out because things are out of control. And the fear of judgment from others makes finding support additionally challenging.

In “A Parent’s Guide to Raising an ADHD child”, Dr Justin Coulson will explore up-to-the-minute science on what ADHD is, why it occurs, and most importantly, what parents can do to create something at home that feels sane and balanced in an often chaotic climate. 

This 60-minute webinar will:

  • Provide science-supported strategies that build parental knowledge, 
  • Improve child compliance, 
  • Offer family-strengthening tips to support parents, strengthen relationships, and build bonds.

Justin managed to connect empathetically with viewers through this webinar. He didn’t just spout facts, but spoke with compassion for the everyday experience of families trying to navigate life with ADHD.

The ADHD session was such a great overview - so time saving as I would have needed to read so much to cover the same ground. It was evidence based, had a really nuanced pitch including cautionary information re misdiagnosis, normalising, with simple and practical strategies, Dr Coulson's positive tone and clear messaging was uplifting. Also appreciated his willingness to go overtime to cover the material comprehensively.

Highly recommend the ADHD webinar for all members of the family to gain a greater understanding of the effects of ADHD. As grandparents, we feel we now have extra tools in our ‘toolbox’ to help the whole family.
