In this blog, I will share personal stories about how I have been impacted by ADHD as a parent. I will tell you what I wish I had done differently too. There is no simple answer or fix with ADHD. It’s complicated, just like people. We’re all different.
I will also share about my successes. My son has done well. I believe part of this is because of how we have addressed his difficulties each step of the way. He’s had tutoring, therapy, medication, school supports, and naturopathic interventions. We’ve focused on his strengths, like music. This process has been far from perfect (read my book, you’ll see). But we have done our best to support him, apologize when we screw up, and encourage his independence.
I will also share what I’ve learned (and continue to learn) about ADHD as a psychologist. I am a professional member of national organizations, like Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD), and I attend annual workshops about ADHD. So get ready to join me on this journey. 🙂
