Online Parent (Child Under 17) Peer Support Group
Monthly Online Peer Support Group – Parents of Children Under 17
We understand being a parent is tough. When you’re a parent to a child under 17 years old with ADHD, there are additional challenges people in your friendship circles may not understand. This online group is a safe, supportive, and confidential environment for people living with a child diagnosed with ADHD. It’s an opportunity to openly share (if you want to) and connect with other parents who genuinely understand what you’re going through.
For many, a support group reduces the feeling of isolation and creates an opportunity for discussion. By sharing ideas and information with others, many people are able to find new ways of coping. Most people who attend feel that the emotional support they both give and receive is of great benefit.
Our Online Parent Support Group is a safe place for people to discuss personal matters and recordings are not permitted. All participants must have their camera and microphone on in order to participate. Please do not be offended if we ask you to turn your camera on and unfortunately you will be asked to leave if you are unable to do so. This is a sign of respect to all participants and the privacy of the group.
