Screen Use/Video Game Rules and Expectations In Your Home

It amazes me that parents still argue with their children about screen time, getting off of video games, etc.
It amazes me even more that some parents continue to tolerate verbal or physical abuse from their child when the child is told to get off of video games/screens.

1. Watch the Creating Daily Expectations Course to establish daily expectations and create Screen Use Rules & Expectations like the sample here (which can be downloaded from the downloadables section of the membership site).
2. Explore the practicality of Executive Function Crash Course. In this course, I demonstrate how to use the clock strategy, a visual aid that helps children anticipate transitions from preferred to non-preferred tasks.
3. Step into your parental authority and utilize these effective strategies. Your child looks up to you for guidance, not for a partner in parenting. Avoid negotiating all your parenting decisions, hoping for their approval. Instead, lead them with confidence using these strategies.
Creating Daily Expectations, Executive Function Crash Course and this downloadable are all part of the ADHD Dude Membership Site. Join for as little as one month ($20) and have access to everything on the membership site, including the ability to attend live "Office Hours," where your questions will be answered live.
