Replay recording available now!

Do you constantly face arguments and negotiations over screen time, chores, or meals?

Is bedtime a source of daily drama and tears?

Are mornings chaotic as you try to get your kids out the door for school?

Do you dread telling your kids when it's time to start their homework?

Routines create stability, structure, and predictability for children and teens, setting the stage for lifelong success.

They also provide the opportunity to master foundational executive functioning skills (eg, time management, organization, and planning), especially important for kids with ADHD!

In this class, you'll learn how to streamline homework, bedtime, meals, chores, and morning routines.

You'll enjoy a calmer household while nurturing your children's autonomy and confidence!
