Motherhood in ADHD – Parenting with ADHD, Productivity Tips, Brain based Science, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Education to Help Moms with Adult ADHD

Sep 21, 2023

When you want to help your kid, but you’re triggered yourself, it’s really hard to show as the mom you want to be.

Today I’m taking you behind the scenes of one of our July meetups in Successful Mama Meetups. The theme for the month was "Angry Moms Unite," focusing on how to stop yelling at your family and regulate your emotions, so you can show up as the mom you want to be more often.

We’re not looking for perfection, but progress.  Empowerment. Giving you the confidence that you can change the things you want to change cuz you’re not doomed to be a hot mess. 

This is a two-part episode, so you can go back and listen to last week’s episode with the exclusive group discussion and this week you get a peek into the free monthly coaching available to Meetup members. 

Mamas inside of our community volunteer to be coached about whatever’s on their mind, and I help them work through it. Jess shares her struggle with anger and yelling at her family, which I think we can all relate to! 

When you use your emotional regulation tools, you’ll feel more clear and connected in those overwhelming moments. With visualization techniques and a reminder to embrace who you are and how your brain works, you can find peace and happiness amidst the chaos.

In last week’s episode, I dove into our monthly theme, talking about why we get so upset and what we can do about it. How do we manage our emotions throughout the day to be able to have something left in the tank for after school and homework, or the witching hour and bedtime, without losing your ish and shutting everyone out?

Each week we start the meeting with 30 minutes of getting stuff done, then social time for the second half. 

Every week is different because ADHD needs a lot of variety! However, there are some repeating themes, like once a month I do free live coaching and every month I share exclusive lessons and discussions within the Successful Mama Community only.

Other weeks, we hang out in small groups and chat, because there is so much power in showing up, getting things done, and finding support in a community of moms who understand the struggles of parenting with ADHD.
