Parenting Youth With ADHD

We recently held another Matters of the Mind public presentation

These presentations are free online events for the public that are focused on mental health topics that are relevant to the people of BC. We are looking to contribute to the wellness of all British Columbians by fostering community connection, breaking stigma, and providing empowering information to help people through complexity.

Parenting Youth With ADHD: Social Emotional and Regulation Strategies

Youth with ADHD often become dysregulated during times of change and/or when things don’t go their way.

In order to support your child, it is helpful for them to build their social emotional and regulation skills so that they can manage their feelings and behaviours in this difficult moment.

Join Mary Klovance B.A., B.Ed., M.A, R.C.C. to learn more about how you can foster these important skills within your child.

In this webinar we discussed the following:

  • Building Resilience
  • Social Emotional Skills
  • Building Self-Esteem and Self-Efficacy
  • Self-Regulation and Co-Regulation Strategies at home and at school
