ADHD and Sports
Our 7 year old ADHD child was suspended from a sport, and it was because of a host of ADHD related behaviors, not so much the trigger incident. Should I try to explain that to him? I’m not sure he’s ready to try to understand how much his behavior bothers some adults. So far we’ve just told him that the coaches took the trigger incident much more seriously than he meant it.
I’m tempted to shield him from the bitter truth until he gets older. Suggestions?
