Is there too much conflict and chaos?
Are you tired of the frustration?
Need some help setting boundaries and motivating your child?
Wondering about how medication impacts ADHD?
The constant stress, confusion and effort involved in parenting a child who has ADHD/ Executive Function challenges can place enormous strain on any family. While there is a range of support available for children who struggle, parents often struggle themselves to know what to do to best help. Our goal is to provide parents with the education, tips, tools, strategies, and support you need to reduce the stress and help you children thrive.

What parents are saying............
"I participated in a class lead by Robyn Parks and Jill Linkoff to better
learn strategies for assisting my ADHD son. The class was fantastic thanks
to clear explanations and thoughtful examples to highlight her
instruction. I thought I knew a fair amount about ADHD given that my son
is 18 and a senior in high school, but I learned so much more usable
information about ADHD and Executive Functioning through this course than
I had from books alone. The highlight of the class for me was the
instruction on using key guiding thoughts to influence your parenting
decisions and behavior, especially the instruction on collaborative
problem solving. I feel I am now better equipped to have calm, problem
solving discussions with my son instead of arguments. The skills I learned
in this course can greatly benefit parents and their young, adolescent, or
adult children. Robyn is a highly effective communicator which added so
much to the class and enabled participants to openly share experiences
with each other. I am grateful to her for all that I learned in the course
of a few weeks. Take the course; you will not be disappointed!"
- Leslie Meek - Parent of a teenage son
"Calm and Connected is a course that every parent of a child with ADHD
needs. The wisdom conveyed through the handouts and discussion is simple
yet powerful. Each session features new tools that can be applied
immediately. Parents and children will experience a calmer and happier
home as the principles are practiced. Give yourself and your family this
- Parent of a teenage girl
"As a Dad, taking the course was instrumental in not only learning how to
better parent a child with ADHD, but also gaining skills that applied to
our entire household. Robyn and Jill were excellent instructors, at both
presenting material and eliciting real-life examples from the participants
that served as work exercises for everyone to practice these skills."
- Dad of a son with ADHD
"The Calm and Connected parent course was excellent. Sometimes as parents
we can feel alone in this work to help our ADHD children, but there are so
many on this journey. The class offered a step by step guide to first
enhance understanding of ADHD and the challenges our children face with
compassion. Tools and strategies were given to build stronger
relationship and communication with our children or teens. Then, we worked
with our children toward collaborative goal setting and plans that were
revisited for revision. The parent guidance accompanied by respect for
the child’s voice in the process is the balance my husband and I are
always striving to do with our 13 year old son. The work of giving our
kids roots and wings is our important challenge and this class was a great
help. A heartfelt thanks to both Robyn and Jill for providing a
supportive climate of sharing, guiding thoughts to maintain our focus, and
so many practical suggestions along the way."
