Parents of Adults Support Group - Lutherville

The 4th Monday of the month, 12:00 noon - 1:30 pm

There will be no meeting in July or August

This is currently a Zoom meeting. Please contact the facilitator at drsrhodes@icloud.com for login information.

Many late middle-aged and senior parents are still living with their adult children. Some of these adults are in their 30’s, 40’s and even 50’s, but have “failed to launch” or returned home (more than once) as a result of divorce, unemployment, under employment, etc.  Some never left home; others don’t live in their parent’s home, but are still dependent on them financially.

 

In most cases, the issues of ADHD that developed in childhood still persist in these adults, and parents are still trying to find a way to be supportive but not enabling, as the adult child struggles with relationships, organization, work, money, alcohol, drugs, etc. At the same time parents worry about the future of their child, especially when they will no longer be here.

Online Support Group for Women

Meets each Wednesday, 7:00 - 8:00 p.m

This is a Zoom Meeting

A Weekly Women's Empowerment Group

 

Living Life with ADHD can be very stressful and extremely overwhelming. In this group you will learn tools and strategies, including a brief practice of mindfulness, to help manage daily stress and overwhelm . Like most moms, I had always believed I should be able to manage my career, run a household, take care of the kids, keep food on hand, and so on.

  • But I couldn’t, and I felt ashamed and often times very alone.

  • My expectations were unrealistic.

  • This group offers support, motivation and inspiration from like-minded women sharing similar challenges. Each week we will discuss a different topic, followed by a guided meditation. This group is open to all!

 

Registration is free and now open. Email Jill Linkoff @ jlinkoffcoaching@gmail.com

 

*Upon registration, a confirmation with be sent with a code and instructions on how to join our Zoom group. Please do not share your code; confidentiality and security are our greatest priority.
