Fourth grader with ADHD wanting to be in band
My daughter is almost 10 and in 4th grade. She is very determined to start new adventures but as soon as they come they go. Right now she is adamant about joining band. Which requires 2 days a week having to be at school by 7:15 when in the next couple of weeks i will be pushing her out the door as the bus is driving down the street at 7:40.
I do not want to deny her of this opportunity to make new connections, opportunity to socialize, and to learn something new. but i also do not want to pay a lot of money for all of us to be fighting over practicing and getting up in the morning. I also dont want to have to “nag” her on one more thing she is to be responsible for.
We have seen this in other activities she has joined. Anyone else have a child with ADHD join band and succeed? Fail? recommendations?
