Thoughtful and Practical

I’m an ADHD mom with ADHD kids. I didn’t know I was ADHD until after my kids were diagnosed. A lifetime of struggle became clear. From the perspective of an undiagnosed child going through life to a parent of ADHD kiddos, I found this spot on and insightful in so many ways. It’s improved my life and my children’s lives with connection and understanding. Life’s not perfect and we continue our struggles, but we come through in a better way and have focus forward.
