Life looks different here. Very different . . .
Taking turns without a drop of contention.
Completing homework without a single tear.
Penmanship that is more precise.
A content and genuine end-of-the-day smile.
A palpable sense of peace.
We are negotiating the world of ADHD and medication with our eyes wide open, and we are putting our trust in our son to lead us through this journey. He is re-learning and unlearning, endeavoring to change entrenched patterns, altering his previously default responses to challenges. I stand by his side and in utter awe.
There are struggles in the process. Perfection doesn’t exist and therefore shouldn’t be the goal–for a person with ADHD or without.
But there is forward movement.
And there is more ease, more confidence, more comfort for our son.
It’s what every parent wants and every child deserves.
