Parents of ADHD Children
Is it ADHD or is she just spoiled?
I’m rather perplexed at the moment, for I see all the signs of ADHD in my daughter and she has been diagnosed by her pediatrician. However at times it seems like she can turn it off when she wants to. I sit here and read along with everyone’s posts everyday and totally relate, usually looking for the same answers myself. Then sometimes when I think she just’s having a total melt down I notice it’s like a light bulb going off in her head and she realizes that it’s something she really wants and she can make herself focus and do it. So it makes me wonder is it that she does not have enough structure, rules, and enforced consequences? She’s so smart and I’m just trying to understand everything. I read so many things on ADHD and use so much stuff I learn to help her and see her excel, but is that she just has to want to as well and I’m doing too much for her? Can anyone else relate?
