Parents of ADHD Preteens
Puberty and ADHD Girl
My almost 10 year old with ADHD is very close to getting her period. She is very immature for her age. We have discussed puberty and body changes with her, but not sex. Family and friends suggest having the sex talk with her, but I fear (due to her immaturity) she won’t handle it well. She still tells potty jokes like a 6 year old. Any advice?
