Help understanding my 6year old with ADHD
I am a 25 year old mother who has a 6 year old son with ADHD. I am in need of a support group to gudie us in our lives and help me as a mother to be the best mother I can be for my son. He means everything to me and he is all I have in my life. I often find myself very fustrated with my son when he does not understand something or listen to what I say. I know he tries so hard to do the things I ask, yet I still get upset and yell at times. In a way it seems when I ask him to simply pick up a book from the floor and put it away where it goes, he ask me three or more times what I just asked him to do. However, there are some cases where he will understand me the first time yet he does the complete opposite of what I asked him to do.
Please someone help me understand what my son is feeling and going through. I want to understand him and help him, not be angry or shout at him anymore. I want my only son to be a happy, healthy 6 year old boy, whose mother understands him more then anyone.
Any advice is welcomed and I thank everyone for the support.
