Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to everyone, but especially, of course, to you mothers and especially to those of you with kids with ADD or ADHD. There are some things I hope you already know, but just in case you don’t, or need reminding:

1. You did not cause it. It is genetic and due to a different wiring in the brain.

2. You can help with it, or you can even make it worse, but you cannot fix it.

3. You can educate yourself as much as possible, advocate for your child, and support them, especially in the things that they do well.

4. Raising children is hard, and raising children with ADD or ADHD is especially hard. I hope you will get some help. You deserve it.

Best wishes,

About doug with ADHD

I am a psychiatric physician. I learned I have ADHD at age 64, and then wrote two ADHD books for adults, focusing on strategies for making your life better. I just published my first novel, Alma Means Soul. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at amazon.com, or smashwords.com (for e books) Living Daily With Adult ADD or ADHD: 365 Tips O the Day ( e-book). This is one tip at a time, one page at a time, at your own pace. It's meant to last a year. As a child, I was a bully. Then there was a transformation. Now I am committed to helping people instead abusing them. The Bully was published in January, 2016. It's in print or e book, on Amazon.

    Thank you.

    I’m 100% sure my 4-year-old granddaughter has it, too. I know most would say it’s too soon to tell but I can tell. I hate that she has it but I’m so glad I do, too, so I can help her learn to manage it.
