Having a child with ADHD does affect the whole family. There I have said it. With all the best intentions in the world it is impossible not to let it impact your life. Routines must change. Planning must be strict. Boundaries made differently. Sometimes these things are for the better. I mean most kids work well with boundaries and routine. But what is the impact of ADHD on the siblings? #adhdinchildren #adhd #adhdkids #adhdchildren #adhdparenting #adhdsiblings #adhdmum #adhddad #adhd Child Support, Support Group, Adhd Parenting, Kids Work, Adhd Kids, Social Emotional Learning, Working With Children, Siblings, Boundaries

Children as young as six years old are susceptible to depression.  It is estimated that nearly half of all children with ADHD will suffer from depression, anxiety, or other mood disorders.  Some statistics show up to 70 per cent of individuals with ADHD will at some point be treated for depression. That is an incredibly high figure.  To read the full blog post please click the link. #ADHD #ADHDkids #ADHDparenting #Depression #Depressioninchildren #kids Adhd Symptoms, Feeling Hopeless, Depression Symptoms, Unmotivated, Mood Disorders

No one really tells you about parenting a child when you are pregnant. You mainly focus on eating right and preparing the nursery. Researching the best mattress; the all important black out curtains; baby bottles, sterilisers; birthing plans etc etc and so on! No one really thinks about after the birth. The bit when the parenting comes in. No one thinks about parenting a child with ADHD. #adhd #adhdawareness #parenting #parentingadhd #parentingadhdboys #parentingadhdgirls #singlemum Single Mum, Adhd Awareness, Birth Plan, Bedtime Routine, Meltdowns

I hate when children with ADHD are labelled as ‘naughty’ or ‘bad’ children. I literally want to scream from the rooftops that their behaviour is normal for ADHD. That their behaviour is their way of communicating what they are feeling. For our children with ADHD, they have difficulties with impulse control. Toddlers do for example. They will throw themselves on the floor when they have simply had enough. Sometimes I feel the same!

Honestly, this is one of the hardest decisions I think a parent of a child with ADHD must make. Should I give my child with ADHD, medication? Firstly, because we are talking about a child, our child. Secondly, because we are potentially making a life-changing decision for them. #adhd #adhdkids #adhdinchildren #adhdinchildrensupport #adhdparenting #adhdmedication #adhdandmedication #adhdmeds #parenting #mumlife #dadlife #momlife #parentlife #adhdawareness #neurodiverse #adhdsupport Adhd Support, Hard Decisions, Life Changing Decisions, Adhd Medication

I can pretty much guarantee that if you are a parent/carer of a child/children with ADHD will have experienced these eight things! 1. Rubbish Advice Love a bit of well meaning advice. Often well meaning, this advice can be anything from cut out dairy, bathe in salt water, give certain vitamins, pillows, bed positioning to stand on one leg whilst hopping with a boiled egg on your head chanting. #adhd #adhdchildren #adhdparent #adhdparenting #adhdawareness #adhdlife #adhdmum #adhddad #adhdkids Unsolicited Advice, Tantrums Toddler, Guilt Trips, Boiled Egg

Ever imagined what it must be like for a child with ADHD? I sat down the other day and really thought about it. Like, properly thought about it. Imagine constantly be reprimanded for having your learning disability. For being punished, nicely termed ‘given a consequence’ for shouting out, fidgeting, not following instructions.

Ever been at a family gathering or a party where people have commented on how amazing your child is and are you sure they have ADHD? Ever gone into your child’s school and practically begged for help and they’ve looked at you like you are crazy. Your child is an angel and maybe it’s you that needs to seek help? You are not alone. Your child is a masker.

OK, so yet more initials to throw at you! But I am just learning about this and thought I would share my findings. RSD or Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria. Heard of it? I hadn’t. It’s not a medical diagnosis, but more a way of describing a symptom that is closely related to ADHD. In fact, up to 99% of individuals with ADHD have this.
