College For Homeschoolers

Attention Deficit Disorder, and the Fallacy of Waiting for Motivation
by Bonnie Mincu, MA, MBA, Senior Certified ADHD Coach

Most Attention Deficit Disorder Adults know that our brain-wiring doesn't respond to what we 'should' do. Unless we're really interested in a task, we have a pretty hard time staying focused on it for any great length of time.

Often we require the stimulus of a looming deadline, or last-minute crisis, to goad us into action. As kids, we probably put off our homework until the last minute because -- until the adrenaline of panic set it -- we weren't able to focus on it.

But what do we do to get motivated when there is no deadline? I often find myself in conversations with ADD / ADHD Adults who report the strong influence of their mood on their decisions to complete stages in their plans. It's quite understandable to feel un-motivated after your proposal falls on deaf ears, or your manuscript is returned with a 'no thank you.'

COMMIT to Your Desires and Dreams
By Victoria Kindle Hodson, M.A.

Becoming a parent is a wonderful way to fulfill desires, dreams, and needs for love, closeness, warmth, growth, learning, understanding, to contribute to the lives of others and so much more. Many of us start family life believing and trusting that our dreams and desires will be fulfilled by our family members. What could be more logical? The people we love most are the people we expect to fulfill us the most.

However, as long as “managing” kids’ behavior is at the foundation of parenting and reward and punishment are primary behavior management tactics, we aren’t going to be able to create the kinds of relationships we want.
