I thought I was failing as a mom until I learned my 2 kids have ADHD. I changed my parenting to fit
Before I learned that my children, ages 10 and 12, have ADHD, I struggled to make them behave at home and in public, which was a source of constant embarrassment.
I found myself screaming, bribing, and pleading with them to sit still, be quiet, and behave, which never seemed to work. After COVID-19 hit, I learned I need to adjust my approach to get through to their differently wired brains.
