The Right Parenting Tools Make All the Difference
Welcome: The Parent Talk Series is a fun e-learning way to educate & support parents with “strength based” attachment parenting methods that deliver loving, positive messages & tools.
The right parenting tools are vital, especially with children & teens with ADHD, LD, mild ASD & anxiety.

Our connection, as parents, is essential now more than ever for our children's social-emotional well-being.

Parent Talk Episode: Sending a Child to His Room as a Consequence Does Not Work.
Discipline does not mean to punish, it means to show up, be present to co-regulate & teach our children new skills.
Behaviour is a result of feelings. When a situation occurs, look at the FEELINGS beneath the behaviour so you can reframe the behavior & teach calming skills. As role models, parents are their child's surrogate frontal lobe. Here are some tips to help.
What you do & say matters. Children need to experience co-regulation from a parent to have a foundation for self-regulation.
