ADHD Parenting GroupNew Groups starting Sept 27th and Sept 30th!
At Fava Counseling, we provide help for parents of ADHD kids in Atlanta.
Have one or more of your kids been diagnosed with ADHD or another diagnosis? Do you suspect that there might be something more going on with your child than just normal developmental stressors or misbehaviors? Do you find yourself getting frustrated from repeating yourself to your children? Are you worried about your children’s academic performance or impulsive behaviors?
If your child is struggling with an ADHD diagnosis, or if you suspect your child may have ADHD, we are here to help.
Parenting A Child With ADHD Can Leave You Feeling Tired, Frustrated, and Alone
Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) impacts more than just school performance. Kids who have been diagnosed with ADHD often have a hard time regulating their emotions, and may struggle with either inattention, hyperactivity, impulsivity or a combination of them all.
These behaviors increase the challenges of parenting kids with ADHD, and can lead parents to feel extremely frustrated and alone, wondering why none of the mainstream parenting advice they are trying is helpful.
Kids who are constantly corrected or criticized for their misbehavior may begin to feel helpless to change and may struggle with shame and low self-esteem.
The brain of an ADHD child is unique, and understanding how it works can greatly increase the chance that you and your child learn how to manage their unique struggles.
Learning effective tools to parent an ADHD child can increase your child’s ability to manage their emotions and responses, and can lead to increased confidence and cooperation.

I love to help and lead parents in the appropriate measures to take when their children are struggling in school or at home. I also have extensive experience in ADHD coaching. As an adult who has been diagnosed with ADHD, I have studied and learned different approaches that effectively assist in the day-to-day functioning of ADHD.
