ADHD at School
How to address intolerance of other parents
There is a boy in my 4 year old’s class who has difficulty with impulsivity and tends to unintentionally hurt other children. My son loves him because he is a sweet and funny little guy - and I encourage that friendship. Other parents are not behaving in a sensitive and tolerant way, telling their children to stay away from this boy and asking the teacher to never sit their child next to this boy. I’m infuriated by this and am hoping that someone can help me to find the right words to use with these parents to educate them and also to show them that they are hurting their children by teaching them intolerance. Every time I formulate a sentence in my head, it is an angry one, and I’d rather speak in a non-threatening, but informative way, so that I am heard and hopefully listened to. Any advice or resources???
