Motivating an “Unmotivated” Child or Teen with ADHD
Organizer: CHADDCost: FREE!
EXPERT: Jeffrey Sprague, PhD
“I’ll do it later.” “I don’t feel like it.” “This is so stupid.”
Does this sound familiar? Many parents struggle with getting their children to do homework, do household chores, 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. There are many reasons kids lack motivation, including ADHD and coexisting conditions.
Parents may become concerned that a lack of motivation will lead to bigger problems later in life like behavioural challenges, trouble earning a living, having healthy relationships, and even substance abuse.
In this presentation, you will learn the reasons why your child struggles with motivation and parenting strategies that you can use to support your child.
- Name the potential reasons that a child seems unmotivated.
- Recognize realistic expectations based on a child’s developmental level.
