"Great children are raised, not born. Great parents are taught, not born. Are you ready for greatness?"

Today's Guest(s)

I'm Dr. Meg Meeker, a practicing pediatrician, parent, and grandparent in addition to being a coach, speaker, and author, so I've seen parenting from every angle.

After helping over 100,000 parents become more consistent role models for their children, I can definitively say that being a great parent doesn’t need to be complicated. It really just comes down to boundaries and discipline.

SHOW NOTES

DESCRIPTION

Sometimes, as a parent, it’s tempting to throw around the letters A-D-H-D without a proper diagnosis. Just because your kid seems to be hyperactive or make impulsive decisions does not necessarily mean that he/she has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD. A lot of times young children have a difficult time focusing on single tasks or sitting still for long periods of time even without ADHD, but these could be indicators of something more. If you have questions, always talk to your doctor. In this first of a two-part series, Dr. Meg guides you through some common questions a parent may have and tips for talking to your doctor if you think your kid may be dealing with ADHD issues. In the next part, Dr. Meeker talks about treatments for ADHD. The information Dr. Meg brings in this series can bring about some really beneficial changes in your family!
