We are all guilty of it. Blowing up at our kid at one time or another is inevitable, because we parents are human and we make mistakes. Of course, we don’t want to blow up at our kids, and it certainly doesn’t have to be part of our everyday family lives, and it shouldn’t be. In this episode of the Parenting ADHD Podcast, I’m talking to psychologist and ADHD specialist, Dr. Marcy Caldwell about the reasons we blow up at our kids with ADHD, and strategies to blow up less and how to handle it when we do blow up. They keys are mindful awareness, co-regulation, empathy and validation, and connection between parent and child. Listen in now to get Dr. Caldwell’s expert insights and strategies to improve your interactions with your kids.
