Parent Management Training

Behavioral Theropy

A key basis to the approach is a positive perspective. All parents become frustrated when children (like those with ADHD) don’t listen. Most kids react to a stern reminder, but when they don’t, moms and dads don’t know what exactly to do. We know that parents begin to keep telling children to do something between 3 and 7 times before they become angry or fed up, and then they use punishments. Even though most children become less compliant if this pattern occurs, parents use it over and over again.

This group will teach you to be in charge of your children by controlling how you react to them, how you pay attention to them, and how you reward them. The basic principles of behavioral science, and the proven techniques of Parent Management Training, should give you back your sense of calm and control.
