Straight Talk Classes


Straight Talk tackles the tough parenting questions.


Straight Talk is a parenting series designed to look at tough topics that are not discussed every day or in every church. Whether we are discussing discipline, substance abuse and addiction, pornography, or social media and technology, we want to support you as you tackle the big questions. 

Recordings from past Straight Talks are available on our blog (Parenting Pathway), where you can search by speaker and topics.

 

Straight Talk: Parenting a Child with ADD or ADHD

In Psalm 139:13-14, the Bible reminds us that God uniquely created each of our children: "They are uniquely and wonderfully made…” As a parent, you have also probably learned that unique parenting strategies are required for each of your children. What supports one child might not be a successful with the next child. But when faced with a diagnosis of ADD and ADHD, many parents are left with a feeling of “Now what?”

Parenting a child with ADHD or ADD looks extraordinarily different than the way one would parent a child who does not have the same struggles. These children tend to have problems executing tasks that require planning, organization, memory, time management, and flexible thinking. Ordinary coping skills and approaches to life challenges do not typically help these children find success. The key is to better understand how their brain is wired, how they process information, and how they categorize tasks and environment cues. This is the child’s Executive Function, or essentially the secretary of the brain. 

Guest Speaker Shannon Thornton, M.A. LPC with Chrysalis Behavioral Therapy and Counseling will share insight into how your child’s brain is uniquely wired. The more you understand, the more you are able to help them build skills and manage difficulties to allow them--and you--to be more successful. At the heart of Shannon’s message, you will find encouragement and hope, along with resources to support you and your family.
