Motivating an “Unmotivated” Child or Teen with ADHD
Wednesday, Feb. 9 | 7 PM, ET | Jeffrey Sprague, PhD

“I’ll do it later.” “I don’t feel like it.” “This is so stupid.”

Does this sound familiar to you? Many parents struggle with getting their children to do homework, complete household chores, turn off screens and go out to play, get a part-time job, or socialize with family or friends. When a child with ADHD lacks motivation, it isn’t because they are lazy. Many parents, like you, become concerned that a lack of motivation will lead to bigger problems later in life like behavioral challenges, trouble earning a living, having healthy relationships, and even substance abuse.

There are many reasons children and teens seem to lack motivation, including ADHD and coexisting conditions. In this presentation, you will learn the reasons why your child struggles with motivation and positive parenting strategies that you can use to support your child.
