Parents of ADHD Children
My son is going into grade 7. He’s a bright kid and, if it weren’t for the ADHD, he’d get great grades. As it is, he gets decent grades, though he struggled in math last year (but I blame that on the poor math teacher he had in grade 5 and the complicated math textbook they used last year).
I don’t think homeschooling is really the best option for my son… he learns an awful lot socially being there, as well as picking up other skills, of course.
The problem is that the teachers here are on strike and have been for some time. I’m worried that if the strike drags on, my son will get behind and really struggle to catch up. (He has some anxiety as well.)
Does anyone out there homeschool? And if so, how do you get your ADHD kids to do the work? Homework is almost always a battle here.
I was thinking even just a math course might be good. And I was also thinking that something online, or on the computer, that has goals and makes it interesting, might be something that would be good to try. Any suggestions?
