Parenting - The Gift of Empathy

Parenting - The Gift of Empathy | Top ADHD Solutions | Scoop.it

Parents often ask me, "How can I best support my child or teen?"  My answer, "Be empathic."  Listen to what your kid has to say, try to understand his/her feelings, and view situations from his/her perspective.  You do not have to share your child's feelings or agree with them.  What is important is that you have compassion for your child's feelings, that you show you care.

Being empathic does not mean accepting inappropriate behaviors, giving in to unreasonable demands, or not pushing your child to undertake challenges.  As Kenneth Barish, PhD, an expert on parenting notes, empathy is not indulgence.  You can empathize with your child or teen and still impose limits and expectations that your kid needs to feel secure and to thrive.

Cottesloe Naturopathic Clinic's curator insight, January 8, 2014 3:35 AM

Of course ADHD does not exist, at least as a clinical entity or a disease. It is a convenient label that then allows blanket medication to make behaviour more compliant to social norms, without looking at underlying triggers - social, familial, dietary, etc. Homeopathy attempts to see the whole picture, the individual in relation to all factors, and chooses the unique remedy that helps restore balance or harmony on all levels: mentally, emotionally and physical. See our Perth clinic pages: www.cottnat.com.au/add-treatment.asp and

5 Smart Ways On How To Parent A Teenager On Social Media - Problem Kids Blog | Top ADHD Solutions | Scoop.it
The greatest challenge we face when we have to learn how to parent a teenager on social media is to talk about how to develop friendships in real life.
robloc's insight:

Whether your child has ADHD or not, the risk of endless social networking will increase distraction, rather than help. Some ADHD kids can actually benefit from this activity as short attention spans go well with social media. The question is to find the happy medium and to make sure that  teens are awae of the need to be connected in the TRUE sense of the word and to be able to develop social skills for the REAL world

Mistaking Dyslexia and ADHD as Normal Variations or Gifts is Potentially Dangerous, Warns Dr. Harold Levinson

Mistaking Dyslexia and ADHD as Normal Variations or Gifts is Potentially Dangerous, Warns Dr. Harold Levinson | Top ADHD Solutions | Scoop.it
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 07, 2014 -- ADHD and www.dyslexiaonline.com/bio.html[dyslexiaexpert] Dr .

According to Dr. Levinson, the well-intended conviction that dyslexia and related ADHD are normal brain variations and even gifts, rather than medical disorders, is misleading and thus potentially dangerous, albeit reassuring to loving parents and other caregivers. The problem is that these alluring suggestions tend to discourage vitally needed perseverance and therapeutic insights while misdirecting crucial research.

These reassuring ideas were unwittingly reinforced recently by Malcolm Gladwell in his fascinating book,David and Goliath. He convincingly argues that handicapped Davids are forced to compensate and thus conquer their Goliaths — now and throughout history.

5 Good Reasons Not To Spoil Your Child - Problem Kids Blog | Top ADHD Solutions | Scoop.it
Think that if you spoil your child, it is not really going to make that difference to their adult lives. Well, think again!
robloc's insight:

Top ten US cities for spoiling kids

Any idea in which city, parents are really spoiling their kids?  Not surprisingly, the Big Apple comes out on top where New York parents are prone to spending a whopping 90% more on their kids than the national average!  Here is the complete list

New York

Brooklyn

Miami

Minneapolis

Tulsa

Dallas

Atlanta

Los Angeles

San Diego

Fort Worth

 

Whether we live in one of these cities is not the point at all. If we do not, there is no room for complacency either! The real point is how much we are encouraging a consumerist mentality in our children and what alternative values we are teaching them.
