A wake-up call, a clear guide for action, and a message of inspiration, this book provides a reality-based recipe for how to do a masterful job of raising complex kids, while not making yourself (or your family) crazy in the process.

It doesn't much matter if your child has ADHD, or anxiety, or learning disabilities, or sensory processing, or ODD, or autism, or depression, or attachment issues--or celiac disease or food allergies, for that matter. All that really matters is this: complex kids struggle with some aspects of life and learning because they have a chronic medical condition (or several) that they need to learn to manage for themselves. A coach approach will help you communicate, collaborate, and guide kids of all ages on their path to independence and success.

Here are some of the challenge areas addressed inside, and the coach-approach messages and strategies for working through them.

  • Challenge: Fearing for the Future Coach-Approach: Parent from Inspiration, Not Desperation Strategy: Shed the Shoulds

  • Challenge: An Unhappy Home Coach-Approach: No One Gets to Be Wrong--The Benefits of Positivity Strategy: Play to their Strengths

  • Challenge: Overwhelm Is Keeping You Stuck Coach-Approach: Focus on What's Most Important Strategy: Take Aim

Once you learn to use the Impact Model with a coach-approach, it can be applied to any situation. in fact, the more you use it, the easier it all becomes. Constant battles don't have to be part of your daily life. With The Essential Guide to Raising Complex Kids with ADHD, Anxiety, and More, you can (all) learn to rediscover peace... and thrive.
