More from the blog about French children don’t have ADHD, or ADD, or whatever, filled with many opinions, mostly expressed with absolute certainty – doesn’t that feel good, to be absolutely certain about something?
So a post from a school teacher (God bless her!) who teaches underprivileged kids (God bless her twice). She says that her kids don’t have ADHD or ADD, they just lack structure and discipline. When she provides them the structure and discipline they need, they do much better, so they don’t have ADD or ADHD. See?
Yes, structure, and discipline, which is a form of structure, are very helpful to those of us with ADD or ADHD.
It’s like saying I don’t have ADD because I get better when I take Ritalin; therefore, I simply have a ritalin deficiency, not ADD at all.
Here’s a lovely comment from Jonathon, who had written about having trouble getting published:
