Parents of ADHD Children

Encouragment
Keywords:


I remember driving home from a school conference for my son in tears when he was about 12 and wishing I could talk to my late grandpa who was my best friend when I was a kid. My grandpa taught me how to read and tie my shoes.  He encouraged me and helped me so much. I just wanted to ask him what I should do to help my son. Then I realized that my grandpa worried about me also and I turned out to have a great life. God has given me so much and even made me successful. God loves our children even more than we do and He has a great plans for His children. We can trust Him!

Thank you Leslie 1.  Counting our blessings is a wonderful way to heal, achieve and maintain perspective and get through the lowest of times.  I feel encouraged.

You guys are great!  What wonderful ideas.

I often wish I had my mother to talk to when I am stressed out or just sad, especially when I feel overwhelmed by my son’s ADHD.  My mom passed away when I was 25.  But, I still talk to her.  When things were at their worst I just spilled everything to her and told her I needed all the help I could get.  Right after that I found the most wonderful therapist who helped my son through the darkest times.
