When you’re dealing with ADD/ADHD, often you experience guilt.
If you’re a parent dealing with an ADD/ADHD child or teen, you may experience guilt in numerous ways, such as:
- Guilt that you have somehow caused the ADHD…
- Guilt that you aren’t handling it well…
- Guilt about the treatment you are giving your child (i.e. medication)
In February 2012, this video was uploaded to youtube. It is a video of a dad expressing his upset with his daughter’s insulting rant on Facebook. He then takes out a gun and shoots her laptop (with hollow point exploding bullets, no less…).

In general, I’m not one for reality shows, especially not ones about singing (maybe it’s because I can hardly carry a tune…). But, something about the promos for “The Voice” caught my attention.

Kids and teens with ADD/ADHD often have what we can call: “Gremlins”. These can also be called: ANTS = Automatic Negative Thoughts.
Everybody gets these, but automatic negative thoughts can be particularly difficult and damaging to kids and teens with ADHD.
Does your ADD or ADHD child procrastinate a lot? If you’re like most parents, the answer is yes. And it likely leads to frustration, hassles, and maybe even battles.
And most parents are thinking: ” This whole thing could have been avoided, if my son (or daughter) didn’t leave this till the last minute!”
The end of the summer presents unique challenges for parents of kids and teens with ADHD – as they work to get their kids back into the routine for school.
We all want our kids to start off the year right, and to do the best that they can do this year at school.
