The Essential Guide to Raising Complex Kids teaches parents and professionals how to be an effective parent when raising children with ADHD, anxiety, and other complex conditions—and how to guide kids on a path to a healthy, happy, well-adjusted life. A wake-up call, a clear guide for action, and a message of inspiration, this book provides a reality-based recipe for how to do a masterful job of raising complex kids, while not making yourself (or your family) crazy in the process. Parenting expert Elaine Taylor-Klaus, co-founder and CEO of ImpactADHD.com, will walk you through their proven coach-approach method, which shows all parents, in simple steps, how to identify challenge areas and how to use critical tools to parent simply, clearly, and effectively—for everyone’s benefit. It doesn’t much matter if your child has ADHD, or anxiety, or learning disabilities, or sensory processing, or ODD, or autism, or depression, or attachment issues—or celiac disease or food allergies, for that matter. All that really matters is this: complex kids struggle with some aspects of life and learning because they have a chronic medical condition (or several) that they need to learn to manage for themselves. A coach approach will help you communicate, collaborate, and guide kids of all ages on their path to independence and success. Here are some of the challenge areas addressed inside, and the coach-approach messages and strategies for working through them.
- Challenge: Feeling Like You've Tried Everything > Coach-Approach: Letting Go > Strategy: Lean into Relationships
- Challenge: Fearing for the Future > Coach-Approach: Parent from Inspiration, Not Desperation > Strategy: Shed the Shoulds
- Challenge: An Unhappy Home > Coach-Approach: No One Gets to Be Wrong—The Benefits of Positivity > Strategy: Play to their Strengths
- Challenge: Overwhelm Is Keeping You Stuck > Coach-Approach: Focus on What's Most Important > Strategy: Take Aim!
Once you learn to use the Impact Model with a coach-approach, it can be applied to any situation. in fact, the more you use it, the easier it all becomes. Constant battles don’t have to be part of your daily life. With The Essential Guide to Raising Complex Kids with ADHD, Anxiety, and More, you can (all) learn to rediscover peace... and thrive.
