Smarter Kitchen Storage When You Have a Small Space
My apartment’s kitchen is small, and part of the space is taken up by the laundry. So the floor is usually buried under a pile of clothes.

I am a recently divorced mom with ADHD who has moved into a small apartment with my teenage daughter, who also has ADHD. Her room is large, but there is no closet.

When I was diagnosed, later in life, I was told that I had ADHD with agitation. My home computer kept my agitation ramped up so high that I was overwhelmed by it. What can I do?

Touchy, Feely Solutions to a Child's Sensory Issues
My 11-year-old daughter has been wearing clothes that seem inappropriate for the weather. It was really hot this past summer, but she wore flannel pajamas at night. When we turned on the fan in her room, she was bothered by the sound. I also found that she doesn’t want to turn the lights on in the morning. Does she have sensory problems?

How Safe Are ADHD Medications?
I am agonizing about whether to start my son on ADHD medication. Someone told me that a stimulant alters the brain if you take it over an extended period. Is that true and should I worry?
