Description

Tracy welcomes you to Episode #125 of ADHD for Smart Ass Women where she invites the ADHD non-believers to join her for a little education. She gets requests for this podcast every week so she decided to do something about it.

 

Tracy shares:

  • Why the authoritarian model of parenting doesn’t work with an ADHD child
  • Nora Volkow’s research about ADHD and interest
  • What the NIH, AMA, U.S. Surgeon’s General, American Association of Psychiatry and the U.S. Department of Education all say about ADHD
  • Whether or not there’s ADHD in France
  • If it’s true that ADHD is strictly an American phenomenon
  • What it means that more kids are getting diagnosed with ADHD
  • What happens when ADHD is not treated
  • If it’s true that everyone has a little ADHD
  • If ADHD is an invention of modern society
  • If video games, social media, smart phones are making people more ADHD
  • Whether or not medicating kids for ADHD turns them into addicts
  • Why willpower, consequences, discipline and punishment is the wrong formula for the ADHD brain
  • What happens to children when they’re told that they’re lazy, unmotivated and need to work harder
  • What works to motivate ADHD children
  • The one question you should ask yourself about your ADHD child
