Parents of ADHD Teens and Young Adults
My husband and I are simply exhausted.
Our high school freshman is having a difficult transition to high school. He is failing 3 classes and he is becoming more and more of a behavior problem each day.
There are many questions keeping me awake at night. Maybe some discussion will help things settle in my brain.
1. How far and how long do we allow him to fail? We are checking homework for completion nightly and feel like he and his teachers should be responsible for the content. It’s not happening.
2. We keep reminding the school of his 504 accommodations. They are not being followed. What would you do after discussions with teachers, guidance counselors and administrators aren’t working?
3. Will he still be living at home when he is 32?
