Parents of ADHD Children
Married but feel like I'm raising my ADHD child alone
I have a 10 year old son who has ADHD, strong emphasis on the “hyper” part. He is on medication but when he isn’t on it during the weekends or in the evening when it wears off my husband has zero patience with him. I feel like I am constantly In The middle and defending our son. It is a lonely place to be most of the time. Do any parents feel this way or deal with this from a spouse? Our son has been diagnosed for 5 years and is on the honor roll at school, he is a great kid and yes he is typical ADHD and yes its frustrating sometimes but I feel like I’m alone with this, any advice is appreciated. I love my child and I wouldn’t change a thing about him.
