Step 1: Understand the Behavior
Behavior is communication. You are NOT a failure, and your child can grow up to be functioning member of society.
Step 2: Make an Adjustment

Tweak how you and your child are communicating so you both feel heard and connected.

Step 3: Do Something Fun

Now that the yelling is behind you, go do something that reminds you how much fun it is to be a mom!

Families raising children touched by adoption and ADHD often feel isolated and unsure of what to do next. No amount of yelling or punishing is working, and they just want more cooperation from their kids. I help you understand what is going on behind the behaviors and provide practical solutions so you can parent your child confidently and successfully and fall in love with parenting again. No judgment here!

Before I talked with Melissa, I felt alone. She is an awesome resource and really understands the day to day struggles of parenting!
Before finding connected parenting I found myself spiraling down to where I felt like I was drowning. Now I have hope and joy again, and my self confidence has returned. I am able to be the mom I want to be.
I felt encouraged to know I had someone to talk to who understands what my family and I were going through. It was so helpful to feel heard!
