Dr. Jim Forgan’s Story
|Hi. I’m Dr. Jim Forgan, professor, licensed school psychologist and author of Raising Boys with ADHD: Secrets for Parenting Healthy, Happy Sons. You are here because you are concerned about a boy with ADHD. You may be frustrated from telling him umpteen times to help out around the home, brush his teeth, or pick up his clothes. His moody outbursts and emotional meltdowns are wearing you down. You are exhausted from the homework battles.
As a professional and parent of a boy with ADHD, I share your same concerns and challenges, and that is why I created the Forgan Parent Support System. This is a system that I’ve been developing over the past few years in my professional work and within my own family as I raise a son with ADHD. This is a collection of my best advice and support that I believe will help you reduce frustration, calm his anger, and create a more peaceful home environment.
I carefully designed these modules to give you the tools you need to help your child begin to reach his or her true potential. As a parent myself, I just want my son to achieve to his potential. Don’t you want that for your child, too? We want our kids to reach their potential for success in relationships, school, community, and career. You may be wondering how much this is going to cost. Think about your child with ADHD. What are you willing to pay to help turn him around?
Imagine what your life would be like when your home is calmer with less stress.
I know there are times when my wife and I would have paid anything to stop the constant negativity and conflict. When you know the right technique or words to use to change the negative into a positive. This could help you turn your child around. I’ve been there and done it and I know you can, too. It doesn’t matter if you are married or a single parent. It doesn’t matter if you have a college degree or not. What DOES matter is that you keep learning, use techniques that work, and do the best you can to help your child with ADHD. You can come see me in person and I’ll teach you this but it will cost nearly $2000 and take 16 sessions. The Forgan Parent Support System is free. Period.
I believe in helping you so you can help your child reach his potential. This is within your reach. Change your outlook from discouraged into encouraged. Each person’s path is a little different, but there are fundamentals you want to make sure you have in place for your child.
You can sign up below to instantly start learning. The choice is yours. Do nothing and hope that your child spontaneously gets better. Or, start building the supports that will build your child’s self-esteem, confidence, and the academic success he or she needs in order to live a satisfying life. You can stop feeling hopeless and instead have hope for his future.
YES! I want free instant access to Modules 1-9 NOW!
