Parents of ADHD Children
My son is 7 and is unable to get along with his peers, it’s hard for me to watch time and time again him exploding when he has to take a turn or share some item. He doesn’t get the give and take thing, he snags a lot and just doesn’t know how to share. Since pre school, when I would pick him up I always found him playing on his own, at first I thought it was kinda cool since I am an introvert myself but now that I know what I know it breaks my heart to see him always on his own because I know he actually wants friendships. It really sucks to feel helpless when it comes to your kids. I talk to him about his actions and how they can make or break friendships and he gets it at the time but then it’s back to the same thing. He gets along the same with his younger sibling, they always fight over the smallest thing, it’s ridiculous! He is very emotional and cries over these issues, he is just pushing people away and I don’t know how to help him.
