Join Tracy for Episode #130 of ADHD for Smart Ass Women where she talks about challenging kids with ADHD and the Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) system developed by Dr. Robert Greene. CPS was developed as a way to diffuse power struggles between parents and their challenging kids, specifically kids with explosive behavior issues. It’s used in juvenile detention facilities, prisons, schools and of course with families around the world.

Tracy shares:

  • Why even if you don’t have kids you will learn something about yourself from this podcast
  • Why telling an ADHD child what to do, doesn’t serve them or the parent-child relationship over time
  • The most important role that a parent plays in their child’s life
  • The question she always ask when she’s trying to figure out what to do next
  • The statement that underpins Dr. Greene’s CPS philosophy and changes everything
  • Why switching from drill sergeant to coach and collaborator is so much more effective with ADHD kids
  • The problem with lagging skills and how to assess them
  • The 3 Step CPS system
  • Who’s opinion must be considered to address challenging behaviors
