https://www.psy-ed.com/wpblog/wp-content/uploads//What%20Can%20Trigger%20ADHD%20in%20Adults.mp3 The last two years have been a period of prolonged stress and isolation for many people, leading to an increase in restlessness, irritability, inattention, and other symptoms that resemble attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). As a result, a significant number of previously asymptomatic adults have begun to consider, or even actively pursue, an ADHD diagnosis. If you’re among those wondering if they have adult ADHD, you may be questioning if it’s possible to develop an attentional disorde ..read more

https://www.psy-ed.com/wpblog/wp-content/uploads//How%20to%20Support%20a%20Child%20With%20Challenges.mp3 Parents of neurotypical children simply take it for granted that a school-aged child can get dressed on his own, feed himself at mealtimes, and complete other age-appropriate tasks. For the parents of children with learning disabilities or mental health issues, on the other hand, the normal progression from helpless infant to self-reliant adult is less clear. Sometimes these kids really do need help with basic things, but there’s a fine line between providing support and enabling dependency ..read more

https://www.psy-ed.com/wpblog/wp-content/uploads//How%20to%20Teach%20Your%20Child%20to%20Stop%20Interrupting.mp3 Frequent interruptions are a fact of life for the parents of young children. Preschool-aged kids seldom wait for their turn to speak, even when their parents are occupied with an activity or speaking to someone else. Though this behaviour can feel disruptive, it’s not intentionally rude; toddlers are only just emerging from infancy, so they still think that the world revolves around their needs. They also struggle with poor impulse control and reduced short-term memory function. If ..read more

https://www.psy-ed.com/wpblog/wp-content/uploads//How%20to%20Stop%20Hyper-Focusing%20on%20Your%20Children.mp3 Kids need love and attention, but they also need healthy, calm, balanced parents in order to thrive. Though modern parenting advice tends to advocate for intense parenting styles, like attachment parenting, it’s important to draw a line between caring for children and hyper-focusing on them. When parents hyper-focus on their children, they create unrealistic expectations for themselves and inadvertently teach their kids the wrong lessons. For most parents, who are already balancing dem ..read more

https://www.psy-ed.com/wpblog/wp-content/uploads//How%20to%20Help%20A%20Chronically%20Sad%20Child.mp3 Every parent shares the same priority: They just want their child to be happy. They know, of course, that no one can realistically remain happy all of the time, but this doesn’t make them any less protective of their child’s well-being. Naturally, then, few things are as distressing as realizing one’s child is persistently sad. Though worry and frustration are seen as normal parts of growing up, sadness confronts the innocent, jubilant image of childhood. Witnessing repeated episodes of intens ..read more

https://www.psy-ed.com/wpblog/wp-content/uploads//How%20to%20Combat%20Academic%20Underachievement%20in%20Verbally%20Gifted%20Children.mp3 Many people are under the impression that verbally adept children naturally thrive at school. We know that most programs of study strongly favour verbal learning styles (as opposed to visual learning styles), so we assume that verbally gifted children won’t face the same challenges as other children. This is, at least partially, true; however, research indicates that verbally gifted kids face problems of their own. Without adequate guidance and support, they ..read more

Five Ways to Help Your Children Behave Better Through Self-Regulation

https://www.psy-ed.com/wpblog/wp-content/uploads//Help%20Your%20Children%20Behave%20Better%20Through%20Self-Regulation.mp3 For centuries, parents were taught that effective child-rearing consists of rewarding good behaviour while punishing bad behaviour. Parents assumed that this would teach their children self-control, and having excellent self-control would allow them to resist temptation and act appropriately. Today, we know human behaviour isn’t that black and white. Kids usually act out not because they want to misbehave or even necessarily get their own way, but because they don’t know h ..read more

https://www.psy-ed.com/wpblog/wp-content/uploads//5%20Strategies%20for%20Dealing%20with%20Extreme%20Anger%20in%20Teens.mp3 Being a teenager is difficult: Adolescents, especially younger adolescents, face a challenging combination of emerging social pressures, physiological changes, and a strong need for independence. As a result, most kids between the ages of 10-15 experience an increase in negative emotions, including anger. It’s not uncommon for kids in this age group to lash out (sometimes dramatically) over issues that appear very minor to the adults around them. While most teens’ angry ou ..read more

Can Music Help Kids With ADHD Focus?
Child Psychology Resources by Dr. Tali Shenfield
by Dr. Tali Shenfield
3y ago
Music’s ability to instill inner peace has been noted since ancient times. Over 3000 years ago, Chinese philosophers first developed the theory that music could “purify the mind.” This belief has endured through the ages, and children in East Asia are still encouraged to develop musical skills in order to hone their patience and concentration. Today, this ancient wisdom is being revisited in order to help kids with ADHD, too. Initial research indicates that having access to background music in an academic environment can increase ADHD kids’ test scores by 38 percent. How Music Helps the ADH ..read more
