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.
