“A Parent’s Guide to Mindfulness and Self-Regulation Strategies for Children with ADHD” [Video Replay & Podcast #251]

Episode Description


Have you ever tried to calm a child in the throes of an ADHD meltdown? Do you end up the usage of language corresponding to “loosen up, take a deep breath,” or “you wish to have to stop”? These parenting strategies are not unusual — and repeatedly useless.

The easiest approach to cope with a child’s tricky reactions — anger, yelling, melting down — is to now not cope with the reactions at all! Instead, center of attention on the response. When the body is quiet, and the kid is attentive, that is after we work on our ability to reply to the environment and those around us. In different words, our parenting ways must be “proactive not reactive!”

A child’s behaviors are tied to his or her worried device and senses. The best strategies for serving to children with attention deficit disorder (ADHD or ADD) learn to self-regulate are easy tactics — together with aware ADHD meditation and sense-soothing tactics — to support focal point and help manage emotions.

In this webinar you will learn from Varleisha D. Gibbs Ph.D., OTD, OTR/L, about:

  • Why children with ADHD have trouble regulating their feelings
  • How primitive reflexes attach to social abilities and habits
  • How to build and toughen self-regulation with ADHD meditation
