Parents of ADHD Teens and Young Adults
I am here to celebrate & encourage!
I am a single mom and knew the best place to share this would be with other parents who understand. I just paid the deposit for my ADHD son to attend the private university of his choice this fall where he will also play football. The feelings I have are overwhelming. I have 5 children, he is #4 - and yes he has taken the most effort, I even homeschooled him for 2 years. But he has done it! His academic scholarship is covering most of the tuition. And last night we attended an awards dinner where he was given a scholarship from his high school’s alumni association.
Parents of teens - yes, it takes a lot of effort, and patience, and diligence and love. But it is so worth it. You can do this! I subscribed to this magazine when he was young and it helped me figure out so much. Keep going! The smile & pride on your child’s face is worth everything! Love & blessings to you!
