1. ToolKit Helps with Understanding Your Child Better: Critical Tools that help YOU better understand what is going on with your child. Helping you see the world from your child's perspective.

1.1 ADHD TESTING AREAS: Since most psychiatrists and physicians are not trained to examine your child’s mental health, we recommend having a school psychologist or counseling psychologist as part of your team in the assessment of your child. They can assist both you and the physician in gathering information on your child’s psychological profile.

Dr. Frank Lawlis, a renowned psychologist who has worked for more than 35 years in the ADHD field, gives us a very detailed list of specific areas to test where concentration and focus are key to a proper diagnosis of ADHD. This list will also help us in giving our children tools to succeed in life.


1.2 EXERCISE SATISFACTION QUESTIONNAIRE. What kind of exercise would be most satisfying for your child?

To determine the best type of exercise program that would not only benefit him/her the most but also give the most pleasure, take a minute and administer this assessment designed by Frank Lawlis for his book The ADD Answer

Have your child mark their opinion about these interests on the following items by circling one of four responses: agree very much (4), agree mostly (3), disagree mostly (2), disagree very much (1). 


1.3 AUDIT FOR DIET. No one knows the cause of attention deficit disorder. But there are several theories demonstrating that anyone could develop ADD cognitive symptoms if they do not maintain a healthy diet.

If you would like to know what dietary elements might be contributing to your child’s symptoms, it’s best if you fill out this audit for diet-related symptoms of ADD. 


1.4 A MEMORANDUM FROM YOUR CHILD. This memorandum from your child that shows you just how well she/he knows how to push your buttons.

This memorandum will teach you the reason your child is emotionally flooded, which will hopefully reduce parents taking it personally when their child has a meltdown.

And, this memorandum may help YOU when it’s time to resolve the anger outburst with your child


1.5 GOOD STRESS AUDIT. Your child’s hyperactivity may be nothing more than not having enough conflict or stress in his/her life.

If you don’t provide your children with some challenges or present them with some conflicts, they may just go out and create some for themselves by engaging in a little hyperactivity behavior (ADHD behavior).

This downloadable good stress challenge audit designed by the renowned Child Psychologist, Dr.Frank Lawlis helps your child's stress levels.


1.6 SLEEP ASSESSMENT. Mood stability and concentration such as ADHD can all be linked to not getting enough sleep. You may consider taking your child to a sleep clinic to see if he/she is sleeping well. Your child may not have ADHD after all and may just be lacking sleep.

Dr. Frank Lawlis is a renowned psychologist who has worked with ADHD children for 40 + years. In his book, The ADD Answer, he has a great list of observed symptoms during the sleeping hours as well as the waking hours. 


2. It Give You Tools to Know Yourself Better: The better you understand your own parenting style and ability to bounce back, the better parent you are.

2.1 RESILIENCY QUIZ. Your ability to rebound after a minor or major setback is probably partly inborn. Beyond biology, we are influenced by how our families taught us to cope with hurt, by how much trust in the world and confidence in ourselves they helped us to build. Our own experiences of success or failure shape us, too.

If you are wondering how resilient you are OR looking for suggestions on how to improve your resilience, I suggest you take this resiliency quiz by Nan Henderson, MSW 


2.2 PARENTING STYLE ASSESSMENT. Psychologists have identified 3 different parenting styles, which contain certain beliefs on what children need to behave.

1 - Authoritarian: where the adult is the enforcer.

2 - Permissive or Indulgent: where the adult enables children

3 - Authoritative or Cooperative: where the adult empowers children and teaches them responsibility through choices and problem solving

WHAT IS YOUR STYLE? ANSWER these questions to see if YOU are Authoritarian, Permissive, or Authoritative?

This questionnaire will also let you know what kind of adult your child may grow to be as the result of your parenting style. 


3. It Guides You To Create Harmony in Your Home: The top methods and techniques for creating peace in your home

3.1 POSITIVE VS NEGATIVE ASSESSMENT. Before we label our children, let’s try all kinds of ways to help that child to succeed. Your child wants to succeed.

As parents, excessive control leads to constant power struggles, where parents try to win over children rather than win children over.

Good disciplinarians have a sense of confidence in themselves because they have a plan. We at Kid Care Approved help others to devise all kinds of plans to help your child succeed.

As parents, do you have negative power or positive power in your home? Remember it takes four positive comments to counteract one negative comment. And, positive power is healing and a negative power creates illness. Answer these questions to uncover if you have negative or positive power in your home. 


3.2 NEVER, NEVER List. When your child is upset, there are certain things we shouldn’t say or do. I call them the NEVER, NEVERS.

We shouldn’t turn your back on an angry child. We shouldn’t apply consequences when our child is emotional.

This ToolKit includes a complete list of NEVER, NEVERS. 



3.3 POWER STRUGGLE STRATEGIES. You may be wondering: "How do I stay out of power struggles with my child and become more responsive instead of combative?"

When we, parents, are under stress, tired or preoccupied, we often slip into domination (“Just do it because I say so”) or permissiveness (“Do whatever you want”). If your attitude is to win a conflict at all costs, you may win the battle, but lose the war (your child).

The goal in any confrontation is to avoid the power struggle in a respectful way. Try some of these excellent techniques to keep you grounded, respectful and loving to your child while still setting limits.



3.4 POWER STRUGGLE STRATEGIES. Most of us are unprepared for the onslaught of sibling rivalry. You may be asking yourself: "What creates such anger between siblings? "

We as parents may be contributing to our children’s sibling rivalry. As parents, we need to create a fair environment.

Download The ToolKit and try some of these strategies in your home. 


3.5 PEACEFUL PARENTING. Children are very sensitive to getting their needs met. When one or more of their needs aren’t being met, they will definitely let us know.

Children who are diagnosed with ADHD or other developmental disorders have an even harder time controlling their emotions and letting us know what is bothering them.

For these children, their frustration and their misbehavior are a cry for help.

As a parent you may occasionally find that YOU are the one who is “losing it” and not your child. Try this Peaceful Parenting approach to reduce your power struggles with your child in the immediate as well as in the future. 


3.6 ADHD SLEEP SOLUTIONS. Sleep medication for children is usually a disturbing proposition.

There have been no clinical trials to determine correct dosages for children, and they have poor effects anyway.

Most of the time these medications have the reverse impact, making the child hyperactive. However, there are some food supplements that appear to be effective because of the imbalances in various vitamin and mineral levels related to hyperactivity.

I have compiled a list of vitamins and minerals and herbal supplements that are helpful for sleep issues.

Athletes need coaches. So, why shouldn’t we have a coach to help us as parents? I don’t know about you, but I think life can be pretty tough. In Hamilton now playing on Broadway, George Washington said to Alexander Hamilton,“Dying is easy, young man, living is harder.” I’m a National Board Certified Counselor and a LifeWorld coach who is so very grateful to work to empower others. I have been helping others for over 20 years. I am big time into family. I am the mother of 5 children and two grandchildren. I have had my share of adversity. I am a 35 + year cancer survivor and sole plane crash survivor who lost her fiancée in that plane crash. I am just so happy to be here and to continue to empower and transform other people’s lives. I am here with lots of love to help you become the person you were meant to be. I am ready to go as soon as you are.

Humans are driven to create groups based on myriad properties including shared beliefs, shared origins, shared traits, and shared affiliations. Once we are in such groups, they systematically affect how we see the world, for example by biasing our attention towards positive features of the in group. My lab addresses this question by studying how knowledge of social groups is acquired, both in cognitively mature adults and in the developing minds of children. How do we decide which to use as the basis of social groups? Do we have natural tendencies to partition the social world in certain ways? What is the role of cultural input in shaping the intergroup mind? We employ experimental and cross-cultural methodologies to gain purchase on these questions.

Dr. Nicole McNeil


Professor, Director of Education, Schooling & Society

Director of the CLAD Development Lab 

University of Notre Dame





Prof. McNeil studies cognitive development, with a primary focus on how children think, learn, and solve problems in the domain of mathematics. This work encompasses several interrelated areas such as numerical representation, symbolic reasoning, concept construction, skill acquisition, and problem solving. She asks questions like “What do children understand about math before they start learning it in school?” “How does children’s understanding of math change as the result of different environments?” “How does existing knowledge affect learning of new information?” and “How do children construct new problem-solving strategies”? Her research is funded by grants from the U.S. Department of Education’s Institute of Educational Sciences (IES) and the National Science Foundation (NSF).
