    How Would You Handle This Situation?

    It’s been a rough day. There's drama at the office. You battled rush-hour traffic to reach the grocery store. The lines are long. Your patience is short. You finally make it home, walk in the door and find...absolute chaos erupting in your kitchen.

    Your son is clearly being difficult and his sister is already in tears. Who knows what caused it all? Could be avoidance of homework. Being told no. Boredom. Distraction. Does it really matter? All eyes look to you for guidance. Why tonight? Why every night? Trying to remain calm, you quickly measure your options.

    Do You…

    A) Run and hide under your comforter for the rest of the evening

    B) Yell at your son and impose an immediate consequence

    C) Try to treat his behavior with understanding (like all the parenting books say)

    You want to be able to choose Option C, right?

    But let's be serious -- staying calm is almost impossible when you have so much going on. Fight or flight is a natural reaction. You're stressed, exhausted and worried about your kid. And the worst part? Tomorrow, it starts all over again. Shouldn't you have effective coping strategies by now?

    All too often it feels like your life is not your own!

    “As the mum of three wonderful teens/young adults, I have done many things in an effort to help.

    But signing up for PSS with ImpactADHD® has been the SINGLE BEST thing I have done! I was getting help from people who only know ADHD at an intellectual level, without any structure for support. ImpactADHD®’s professionalism combined with lived experience is special. Now, I am more confident in the way I am responding (and not responding). Thank you. This is a blessing.“ ~ Rosie E, British Columbia

    “I participated in my first PSS Coaching Group today. For several years, I've been reading books and doing online positive parenting classes. While they've been helpful, it was SO nice to be able to cut to the chase and get coaching on parenting a kid who is not neurotypical. Thanks, Diane and Elaine.“ ~ Lori S

    There are many thoughts and feelings that you might have ...

    FEAR – “I’m afraid for the future. What if he never makes it through school? What if he can never hold down a job and is still living at home when he’s 40?!”

    EXHAUSTION – “I feel like I’m permanently fighting or running on a treadmill. No matter what I try, it doesn't seem to help." 

    CONFUSION – “There are so many people out there trying to give me advice. None of it seems to work. I have no idea where to turn or what to do that will help.”

    JUDGEMENT – “I can feel people’s eyes on me. They must be thinking I’m a terrible parent.”

    FRUSTRATION & ANGER – “I am so annoyed, and it doesn't take much for me to lose my cool completely. This is ridiculous. My main communication seems to be yelling.””

    FEAR – “I’m afraid for the future. What if he never makes it through school? What if he can never hold down a job and is still living at home when he’s 40?!”

    GUILT – “Is this my fault? Should I be doing something differently as a parent?”

    ISOLATION – “I feel so alone. None of my friends understand what I’m going through…not that I have much time to see them, anyway.”

    SADNESS –“This isn’t how what I thought things would be. My kids don’t respect me, and they certainly don't care about my feelings.”

    SHAME – “What will others think about me as a parent? Are my children’s problems a reflection of me? Have I failed them?”

    RESENTMENT – “It's so unfair. Why does this always land on me? I'm tired of giving other people the benefit of the doubt. I just want some help, here.

    Imagine Life When…

    • you're not exhausted from carrying the weight of the household
    • homework assignments don't escalate into full-blown warfare
    • your kids are motivated to turn in their schoolwork — on time
    • your teen's behavior is genuinely respectful
    • you know how to teach your kids to manage their challenges
    • your kids ask for help instead of taking their problems out on you

    Rediscover the Joy of Being Your Child's Parent!

    There are effective ways to help your kids learn to be more successful. And they're not that complicated.

    But this may surprise you: they start with the parent, shifting communication with your complex kids.

    Medication may help for some kids, but it is not complete treatment, even when it works great. In fact, the research is clear — when medicine is complemented by behavioral treatments, parent training improves its effectiveness (and reduces the amount needed). 

    The change you're looking for happens when you begin to parent differently, bit by bit. When you become less angry and frustrated, and begin to build on what is going well. When you focus on progress and become more connected, the entire family dynamic begins to change.

    Mastering the art of parenting kids with ADHD, anxiety and other related challenges —  from pre-school through college — means learning strategies and tools to calm yourself and empower even the most complex kid.

    We can share this approach with you — show you how to manage your child’s behavior in a way that keeps their self-esteem in tact. And we can support you while you figure things out.

    Hi, we’re Elaine and Diane,
    Educators and Parent Coaches

    We’re the founders of the award winning ImpactADHD® — and parents to six complex kids between our two families.

    When complex challenges first entered our lives many years ago, there wasn’t very much help available for us as parents. As moms, we were committed to finding workable solutions. We searched extensively, and tried a lot of different approaches. But nothing seemed to help very much.

    And then we each discovered coaching, which helped us understand that the best solutions actually had more to do with us than with our kids. As coaches, we became much better parents to our complex kids. The skills and strategies from the world of coach worked wonders for our families. And we realized it wasn't rocket science -- it was larglely about better communication and stronger relationships.

    We felt as if we had unlocked a great secret.

    Coaching completely changed our lives, and we are determined to make it available to parents of complex kids everywhere.

    Now, nearly a decade later, we teach parents how to take a coach-approach with their kids – the behind the scenes stuff that really works. We help parents to better understand their kids’ individual needs… and teach them how to communicate more effectively. With a combination of training, coaching and support for parents, the results for children and teens are astonishing. 

    Not only have we turned things around for our own families, but for thousands of families around the world. We know first-hand what works, what doesn’t, and just how amazing it is to make minor tweaks that get major results.

    Our methods have made us highly sought after in the world of complex kids -- those with ADHD, anxiety, learning disabilities, 2E, and more -- and we are frequently approached for guidance and contributions by national resources such as the American Academy of Pediatrics, Attention and ADDitude magazines, and other national press. We published "Parenting ADHD Now!" in 2016, and have a new book coming out, "The Essential Guide to Raising Complex Kids with ADHD, Anxiety and More."

    “Things are really going very well. PSS helped a great deal to bring more calm to our home, which is especially helpful since we have an 18 year old son.” ~ Linda C, CA

    “I want to say Thank YOU!!! Today's call was great. It really helped me to get clarity on prioritizing.”~  Nan P , WA

    The Parent Success System

    The Parent Success System was carefully designed to give you maximum support without overwhelming you, so that you and your child can achieve optimal results. It helps you handle challenging circumstances when they occur, with as much grace as possible. You will learn to teach your kids self-management and ultimately guide them to take control of their own challenging issues over time, as appropriate.

    Meeting in small groups, twice monthly, in coach-led phone/video chat sessions, we tackle a new topic each session. You identify specific issues you are struggling with in your family at that time, and leave with a plan for immediate action.

    As a PSS member, you will:

    • get tremendous help in the daily management of your child’s challenges
    • hear what works for other parents and get new ideas from your coach
    • develop a skill set of targeted strategies to use for specific situations

    PSS calls combine Training, Coaching and Support. During the session, each participant:

    • identifies an area of challenge
    • gets clear on what more needs to be learned or understood
    • learns a specific coaching skill to practice
    • considers options for addressing the challenge
    • leaves with a commitment to action

    Your workbook will guide you to prepare for each session. You'll choose specific challenge areas to focus on, such as:

    • Getting Started on Homework
    • Getting Kids to Bed on Time
    • Creating a Useful Chore Chart
    • Dealing with Sibling Squabbles
    • Snarky Teenage Behaviors
    • Handling “Don’t Worry, I’ve Got It”
    • Fostering Independence in Schoolwork
    • Turning Specific Chores into Routines
      …and so many more
    Parent management strategies designed for maximum impact.

    It's simpler than you think to manage your child’s complex issues with calm and confidence.

    “My mom gifted me a membership in PSS and Sanity School, which I’ve been in for over a year now. What a gift! It has taught me a lot. It helped to listen in on calls and see that others were having the same “issues” we were. It’s made me feel not alone. Which is huge when you’re raising differently wired kids and kids from hard places. Because of your tools I was able to identify ADHD in my other son, too, and now have help/tools for both of my kiddos with ADHD. I didn’t know it could look so different. Thank you for all you do. You all are changing lives.”

    ~ Kacey H

    "After the last 11 years of trying to "figure out" what's going on for my son, I can honestly say that ImpactADHD® is the first resource that I felt really got what we were/are experiencing and gave me real, tangible tools. You helped me "single parent" my son over the past 3 years while my husband was deployed. Thanks so much for all that you guys do — it is very much appreciated. Thanks for helping me find solutions."

    — Sara C, CA

    “Joining the ImpactADHD® community has empowered me and validated my desire to parent my ADHD child to the best of my ability. With the Parent Success System, I am now gratefully tapped into a community of parents and experts who understand and are making a difference in my life and my family’s life.”

    — Suzann K

    Our Commitment to Parents

    Truth be told, you probably want your kids’ challenges to just go away, and we wish we could tell you we could make that happen. But that's not the real world, and we want to be clear and honest with you. You can't make it go away, but you can make things work much better for your family.

    What you need is right in front of you:

    • Reduced stress in your home as you learn strategies to stay calm, set the tone, and discover new ways to address old problems, like homework and relationship struggles.
    • Re-connect with the loving family you know is there – under all that frustration.

    The Parent Success System will arm you with the most fundamental knowledge, targeted tools and effective strategies to make managing your complex kid easier and less stressful. Perhaps more importantly, it will give you a partner in the process -- experienced coaches and other parents also on this journey, so you won't be going through it alone.

    Our Commitment to Affordability

    Joining the Parent Success System is NOW REDUCED from $147 to $97/month*

    That’s less than the cost of a daily Starbucks latte for a month.

    When you invest in yourself, you can make a huge difference for your kid. Maybe it’s time to make your own French press coffee and commit to the change that will make your life — and your kids’ life — feel manageable and peaceful. Do something for you to keep your kids on the road to success. Your sanity and well-being, and your kid’s self-esteem and future success, are connected.

    Time for a no BS moment, Parent to Parent: 

    PSS is a program that actually works in the real world. It's an enormous amount of support -- 4 hours of live calls a month, plus so much more.

    "For me the value of the PSS goes beyond the strategies/ tactics I have learned. Knowing that I am not alone in the parenting challenges of complex kids is more comforting that I expected. I have found my tribe. It isn't one I expected to join, but it is an amazingly safe and supportive place."

     -- Mia J, VA

    "Bringing some of the issues and struggles into complete awareness is key to this program. Once you're aware of the behaviors, it's easier to put plans together to overcome the challenges. I may not do it "right" all the time, but at least now I know how it should go and feel better equipped to handle difficult situations."

     -- Dianna B, CA

    Here’s the Bottom Line:

    • Whether your child is taking medications for ADHD, anxiety or OCD, or any other issues — there is no magic pill for success. It takes skills and support to learn to manage and master living with complex issues long-term.
    • Learning strategies that work while connecting with other parents will help you feel calm and confident. You’ll know what to do, and more importantly — how to do it. And you’ll know you’re not alone.
    • When you have a group of parents and a coach on your team, you won’t feel avalanched by the challenges. Your path for supporting your child will become clearer, and a more peaceful home will be the first step on that journey.

    The absolute bottom line? You wouldn’t still be reading this if you didn’t want to do something. If you still aren’t sure that this is the right program for you or your family, reach out to us at TheTeam@ImpactADHD.com and we will be in touch. Let us help you figure out how we can help, so you can become the parent you really want to be for your complex kids!
