Demon Child? Seriously?

Today’s post is the third in a series about adults who misunderstand and react horribly to ADHD behavior. This is my rant!

Today’s post is the third in a series about adults who misunderstand our children’s behavior. For example, a college-educated young adult who BELIEVES MY DAUGHTER IS POSSESSED BY DEMONS!

This post is my rant about the topic. Please bear with me, because I will be insensitive. I will be disrespectful of your religious beliefs…if you believe in demon possession. Someone messed with my loving, innocent kid, and I DON’T LIKE IT.

No-good-crazy-babysitter-from-HELL prayed over Natalie to rid her of a demon. Did she pray out loud? Did Nat hear this bulls#@t and internalize anything? What will that do to her developing self-image?

Plus, she spanked her, and pinched her. When we adopted this poor child, she was scared to move. She held her little hands in fists, like she was afraid to touch anything. She pursed her lips like she was afraid to talk. She had a serious, sad look on her face. She had bruises all over her skinny butt. We’ve spent 5 years gaining her trust, telling her that we’ll take care of her, keep her safe.

So, she was “calm” after you spanked her, prayed over her, and chased out the demon? She regressed, you xxxxxx xxxxxx. Thanks for this wonderful setback. I’ll think of you every time Natalie acts out.

Next time, save your prayers for your own Goddamn soul. You’re the one who needs it.

  1. Wow, noooooooo! I’m truly sorry you and your baby girl had to endure that. That is awful, on so many levels. However, I’m not exactly sure why this is a ‘guest blog’…. can just anyone write an ‘article’ for ADDitude? This seems like it ought to be in the forums. I thought articles/blogs were intended to be resources. While I can glean from this, that education of what ADHD is and looks like is so so crucial, as well as how important it is for caregivers to have the resources they need to self-manage first before caring for a special needs (or any child, for that matter), I don’t see how this article contributes to the ADDitude community, especially since everyone who is here in this community most likely already knows these things.

    1. Granted, the intro did mention it was a rant, but also the third in a series… I haven’t read the first two, so I don’t have the whole picture- but are they like these as well? I don’t know since they’re not linked.

      1. Ok, my mistake. I seem to have wandered into a section I never knew this website had. I didn’t realize people wrote about their experiences, such as this lady. Although, I don’t know how to delete my comments (on mobile atm).
