Ep #208: Role-playing–the secret sauce for changing a child’s brain

November 2, 2022

Are you looking for the secret sauce to change a child's behavior? 
It's Role-playing!

A newly released study found that new experiences helped to change a child with ADHD's brain. This finding is super exciting as it gives credence to using behavior skills to help a child better manage a diagnosis or reduce negative behavior. It also confirms that a child can learn new behavior and replace poor behavior with positive behavior.

When a child Role-plays they are essentially creating a new experience for the brain--which often becomes the new default response. 

We can talk to our children about what they did wrong or what they need to do next time, but until they Role-play it, they will have difficulty remembering for the next time. 

Role-playing is incredibly powerful and is something every parent should use to help their child! On the SmarterParenting website, you will find a short video teaching parents how to use Role-playing. You don't want to miss it!
