Abraham Maslow and ADHD Parenting

The Connection between Abraham Maslow and ADHD Parenting

Memorize this. It is the answer to every ADHD parenting question. Like the Rosetta Stone, that taught linguists and archeologists how to read the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics, Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs – proposed in his 1943 paper “A Theory of Human Motivation” – is our guide to ADHD parenting. He didn’t have this specifically in mind, but I use this chart all the time in my ADHD coaching.

Want to know why your child isn’t able to focus? Look at Level 1. Want to know why your child’s behavior is challenging? Look at Level 3. It’s all about Abraham Maslow and ADHD for me! Check out my Video below.

What troubles you about parenting an ADHD child or teen?

Let’s talk! No judgment, no salesy come-on. However you WILL receive a good deal of TLC and a slew of strategies. You can say anything. You can cry. You can swear. Your confidentiality is guaranteed, and I promise to listen and give you hope and relief. (You might even find yourself spontaneously doing a happy dance).

“Thank you Yafa. You’ve given me incredibly helpful tools! It was really a pleasure to speak with you. I’ll be back in touch in the coming weeks.” Stella R, Portland, OR.

“I really appreciate that I could be vulnerable and you didn’t shoot me down. I feel comfortable with you and your humor brightened the call.” Danielle A, Bellingham, WA.

“I talked with you a year ago, Yafa, and your voice is always in my head, guiding me. I just wanted to email and thank you.” April W, Queensland, Australia

“Thank you for your encouraging, enlightening suggestions.” Jill E, Seattle, WA.

Thank you for ‘being there’ to share your wealth of knowledge and personal experience with us who are ‘floundering’ and ‘lost in the forest’ when it comes to ‘dealing with special and difficult circumstances’. Gratefully yours, Rochelle H, Alberta, Canada xox ((((BIG HUGS)))
