Re: Need some one-on-one advice on my parenting
I have heard Rona Renner speak about parenting pre-schoolers at my son's preschool and she is a very sensible, person with a helpful, non-judgemental problem-solving approach. She has a great sense of humor too, which you need when you're feeling overwhelmed with parenting. I know that she also runs workshops for parents at Kaiser. I think she'd be a great person to help with parenting skills.
Re: ADHD Parenting Classes & Support Groups
Rona Renner with Kaiser in Richmond runs an ADHD parenting workshop. It is a 4 part series on Saturday mornings. I believe the next series starts on Oct. 9th. Her # is (510)307-2539 for more info. You do not need to be a member of Kaiser to attend-- it is free to the public. I have not actually attended yet, but I plan to go to this next one. My son is 8 and was diagnosed with ADHD at age 7. We have had a lot of ups and downs and I've learned a lot in the process. If you'd like, I would be happy to talk with you more about our family's journey with an ADHD child (behavioral pediatricians, medication as an option, schools, etc.).
Re: Personal coach for parenting 6-year-old
My husband and I went to see a wonderful therapist (she calls herself a nurse) at Kaiser Richmond, named Rona Renner. She is wonderful, and extremely thoughtful! She offered us sound and do- able suggestions on how to deal with our seven year old son, as well as insights into why he bahaved the way he does (what he is feeling inside, and things that we can do or say that will help him (and us)). If you have Kaiser insurance, I would RUN to her immediately! The other possibilty is Jim Beatty, who offers social skills workshops for boys. He is located on Eighth Street, in Berkeley. His phone number is: 644-1788. He probably can't help you, but he might help your son. As an aside, I, too, am not proud of the anger I feel towards my son sometimes, but talking to Rona Renner really helped. I hope you can get in to see her! Everybody Needs Help Sometimes
Re: ADHD Parenting Class
I attended the ADHD parenting class at the Kaiser in Richmond. Class lasts for 4 weeks, is free, has lots of good information, and you do not have to be a Kaiser member to attend. akiversen

Re: Kaiser Therapist for Spirited Child
Rona Renner is amazing! I took a class with her, and a friend consulted her for temperament issues concerning her son. Rona is a mother of several children herself. I wish I had Kaiser health insurance just so that I could consult with her! Alison
