Just Diagnosed With ADHD (Children)
How do I tell my 6 year old he has ADHD?
My son who has just turned 6 was finally given the diagnosis of ADHD. I’ve suspected this for 2 years but could not get the diagnosis until he started having issues when he entered Kindergarten. I have an appointment in a couple weeks to start him on medication. My question: How do I explain ADHD to him and tell him he is going to begin medication?
