Parents of ADHD Children
Swearing, shoving out of anger
Our 9 year old son has had several incidences of swearing and shoving when he gets upset. He has a mood disorder (unspecified) as well as ADHD which he is taking medications for both.
I have had to leave work early to pick him up from school on many occasions and it is really wearing on me. He does so well for weeks at a time and then has a bad day. I am always the one picking him up from school since my job has more flexibility but I am getting to the point where I feel people are starting to notice how often I leave at the drop of a hat for some “reason.” My husband’s job has very little flexibility so he can’t leave as frequently or on such short notice. It takes a toll on both of us and our younger daughter, I fear, gets the short-end of the stick all the time since we spend so much time trying to manage things with our older son.
It would be nice to know if other parents are going through the same thing - just being in the company of others would be extremely comforting.
