* Emotion Coaching: Help Your Child Cope with Big Feelings (Webinar)
Wednesday, May 25 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm (Eastern US time)
We can’t guarantee that our children’s lives will be trouble-free, but we can help them develop the skills they need to cope with their feelings. Learn ways to prevent or minimize children’s emotional “melt-downs” and guide them toward managing difficult feelings and cultivating positive feelings.
* Friendship Challenges of Kids with ADHD (Conversation Hour)
Wednesday, June 22 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm (Eastern US time)
For children, the most difficult part of having ADHD is often the social challenges it creates. They often have hearts of gold, but their impulsiveness and lack of awareness of social cues can get in the way of making and keeping friends. Join Dr. Eileen Kennedy-Moore for an informal question and answer session about practical ways to help your child with ADHD navigate the social world.
