ADHD Parenting Tips | I Can’t Cope With My ADHD Child – Part 1
Parenting is never easy – Not for ANY parent (even those parents who seem from the outside like they’re doing everything perfectly and coping really well – yes – even they have problems sometimes!!)!!
There are always challenges and we are always learning new things as we go along. Because children don’t come with an instruction manual however much we wish they did!!
But when you are parenting a child with ADHD you’re going to need some ADHD parenting tips because there are so many times when you say (or scream) to yourself “I can’t cope with my ADHD child!”
It’s a totally different kettle of fish to parenting a non ADHD child!
It is totally draining, emotionally and physically.
There are many times when you just wish you could run away and hide.
But of course you don’t…
…because you know your child needs you…
…and you love them so much…
…that however frustrated, crazy, angry, disappointed, miserable, run down,drained or exhausted you get because of the daily struggles…
…you’re ALWAYS going to do your best for them…
…NO MATTER WHAT!!!
And it’s a BIG BUT….
YOU ALSO NEED TO LOOK AFTER YOURSELF!!
Because if you don’t – Who will be there to help your child?
As any Air Hostess will tell you you need to put on your own oxygen mask BEFORE you can help others – EVEN YOUR CHILDREN!!
Because if YOU run out of oxygen before you finish helping your child you’re no good to them or to anyone else!
So you need to gather together some ADHD Parenting tips that work for you and your ADHD child so that you have something to fall back on when you get to that stage where you’re yelling inside your head “I can’t cope with my ADHD child“.
And hopefully that is where I can help.
ADHD Parenting Tips | I Can’t Cope With My ADHD Child – Parent Survival Video
I hope todays video has made you realise just how important it is to look after yourself.
Don’t feel guilty for needing some time or space for yourself (yes I know we all feel guilty and selfish for wanting some “me time”) because you’re doing it for your child in the long run.
Remember if you end up ill you can’t help them anyway – better they cope without you for 10 minutes a day than for days on end if you have to go to hospital to recover!
I’ll be here for you with more ADHD Parenting Tips in future posts and hopefully I can help you get to the point where you’re hardly ever screaming to yourself “I can’t cope with my ADHD child“!
