E175: Exit the Emotional Rollercoaster: How to Help Your ADHD Child Build Their Emotional Regulation Skills with Dr. Carrie Jackson
Manage episode 354943355 series 2913393
Having someone on your side who understands makes everything easier. Especially when you’re learning how to navigate parenting your neurodivergent child.
As a child psychologist, Dr. Carrie Jackson coaches parents on how to work in harmony with their ADHD child. As someone who also has ADHD herself, she helps parents with novel strategies that fit with their own, as well as their child's neurodiverse brains.
On today’s episode we talk about avoiding major meltdowns by learning your child’s patterns, diffusing tense situations, navigating when to step into your child’s conflict and when to let them resolve it on their own.
You can use many of these emotional regulation strategies for your own neurodivergence, too, mama! Let’s lean into working with our ADHD brains instead of against them.
