Below are a few quotes from parent/carers who have completed the “Monster Inside” parent/child training programme.

“I feel more in control”
“I understand my sons feelings now”
“I am happier and my family is more calmer and we feel like a family unit now”
“I will be even stronger in six months time”
“Keeping to the rules and following things through, I have learnt to talk less, think about what I say and I listen to my son”

The parent/carers workshops will explore the issues related to living with a child with ADHD, taking back control, family values and problem solving.

The children’s workshops will follow the same themes as the adult but will be child focused and will include: social skills, making informed choices, peer relationships, social media and understanding and learning to manage their ADHD “Monster”.

To achieve the best results you and your child/children must attend all the workshops.
