Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) May 23, 2013
Award-winning parent coaching and training site debuts 6 e-learning courses.
Nationally recognized, ImpactADHD’s six-part Parent Academy Mastery Series gives families real-world, proven coping strategies to deal with the challenges of raising ADHD kids head-on. Parenting kids with ADHD can be stressful, overwhelming, isolating and frustrating. It can also be joyful and positively entertaining. But for many, the stress is ever-present, and the ‘good stuff’ is all-too-often out of reach. The six-part series is designed by parents and ADHD experts to address a family’s greatest parenting concerns – in your own home, on your own time.
Minimize Meltdowns, the first of the Parent Academy’s e-learning courses, teaches parents proven strategies on how to deal with emotional outbursts, meltdowns and impulsive behavior to shift a family from merely surviving to absolutely thriving.
“As a parent of a child with ADHD you need strategies and support to bring peace and calm. You often feel embarrassed and frustrated dealing with your child’s heightened emotion and impulses,” said Elaine Taylor-Klaus, co-founder of ImpactADHD. “The Minimize Meltdowns Parent Academy e-course equips parents with the confidence and provides the skills they need to take control of their home life and stop the insanity.”
“As a parent I feel frustrated that my kid is so easily distracted…ImpactADHD gives me a place to slow down, get help with coaching, and remember that I’m not alone,” said Michelle Cooper, parent.
ImpactADHD’s Parent Academy utilizes the proven Coach Approach to help parents navigate the fine line between guiding their kids and still encouraging independence. With this approach, parents see the best in their kids, and seek to help them reach their full potential by focusing on learning and improvement, rather than correction and criticism.
“It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that parent coaching and training are a perfect match for each other,” said Diane Dempster, co-founder of ImpactADHD. “In our case, it did take two moms, who became coaches, and realized what a difference it made in helping us do a much better job of raising our ADHD kids!”
