I believe my step daughter has adhd, she’s going to be 5 very soon and she reminds me a lot of my sister whom has adhd. I personally don’t know how to deal with her when she has a few of her adhd situations. I want to be a good step mom but I don’t know how to with this. My sister I grew up with so I learnt how to talk to her, but I don’t remember when we were children and how my mom delt with her lack of focus and a few other things. If anybody knows tips to help raising a child with adhd please message me!!! She has not been tested yet, but everything my sister went through makes me strongly believe she has it
Do you know what really is the hardest thing? It’s having adhd and i will tell you this it will always be hard work. But it’s harder for the person with adhd, the unknown and the random manic episodes and not understanding why 90% of the time you can’t sit still like everyone else. X
I bet it is hard for her, but I just don’t know how to respectfully answer her or try to raise her, nothing I do ever feels right and I just would like to know how to take on the situation in the best manner, I’d prefer to have the knowledge and help her with it than ignore it and make her suffer with it
Anything like ballet or yoga, to increase focus, align brain, help coordination, socialise........
You may be looking at cluster of issues, dyslexia, dispraxia, effects of being different.....
You sound overwhelmed. Just support each "thing" with a solution one by one. All will add up.
