Parents of ADHD Children
Do any of you all have advice for having patience with my 4yo? I’m almost positive she has ADHD. I have ADD and cannot concentrate or remember anything to save my life. Her’s manifest itself in a different way where she is sooooo hyper allll the time, she has a hard time listening and staying still, and she throws tantrums over the smallest thing. I have a low tolerance when it comes to misbehaving, but I do not want to spank her. I find myself yelling at her constantly and I’m turning into my mother! That was the last thing I wanted to turn into. She doesn’t understand ADD/ADHD at all was constantly yelling and criticizing me and I feel I’m doing to same to my daughter. It’s breaking my heart, but I don’t know how to find patience when it comes to her.
