Calm and Connected

When rewards and punishment don’t work
Calm and Connected© will!
  • Are you worried that your child won’t reach their potential?
  • Is there constant and consistent conflict and chaos in your home?
  • Are you struggling with parenting a child with ADHD, Oppositional Defiance Disorder, or Executive Functioning issues?
  • Do you need help setting boundaries and motivating your child, and staying calm when trying to connect with them?

Parenting can be stressful, especially when your child struggles with ADHD, Executive Function, ODD, or Learning challenges.

Parents often take signs of disrespect, lack of effort, and defiance as indicators that they need to be stricter and have tighter boundaries. This is often ineffective and risks creating more chaos and stress. Typical rewards and punishments (which most parents find don’t work anyway) don’t get to the core issues causing the challenges. The result? Transferrable skills are not learned, and systemic change is not accomplished.

A Note from Cindy

Develop Tools and Strategies to Manage…

I have been coaching parents through many complex parenting challenges, and I want you to know that change is possible. I will help you develop the strategies and the confidence to support parenting a child with ADHD without enabling. Learn how to motivate without relying on rewards and punishments.

We now have Parent Coaches offering the Calm and Connected© Workshop and coaching parents one-on-one in the US, Canada, Kuwait, Dubai, China, Saudi Arabia, and Sweden. Parents worldwide recognize that ADHD/EF Parent Coaching (one-on-one or in a group workshop) is a valuable way to help them learn to best support their children.

I approach ADHD as a Difference with Challenges – NOT a Disorder!

Frequently Asked Questions

stars divider

When two people are involved in parenting a challenging child, the approach and philosophy they each take must support one another. While each parent doesn’t need to participate in the Workshop Series, the opportunity for both to hear firsthand and explore the challenging issues with me is highly beneficial and recommended.

Each session includes handouts and follow-up emails with additional resources to support you.

Being a parent of a challenging child can sometimes feel very isolating. Friends and family members may be well-meaning, but without experiencing the daily problems and difficulties you and your child face, their support and guidance may fall short. Learning and sharing with other parents allows you to create meaningful connections with others who can understand and help you as you travel your parenting journey.

Registration in the entire 7-session series includes the on-demand eCourse. This is a previously recorded series without parent participation.

Yes, Cindy has her own ADHD Parent Coach Academy where she trains professionals who can work one-on-one with you.

Yes. Single parents find it especially valuable to have other parents to share concerns with and to learn from. Any grandparents or other guardians who are significant caregivers will benefit from the knowledge this workshop provides. And the child will benefit by having everyone educated and in agreement regarding the child’s care.

Yes, currently, you may register in Spanish. I also have Coaches who can facilitate the workshop in Chinese, Japanese, and Arabic.

New dates are announced periodically. Please join my newsletter to stay updated and check the website for updates.
