My daughter is in her sophomore year of college. She doesn’t have an ADHD diagnosis but does have anxiety and struggles with planning/organization. Our intention all along was for her to work — financially we desperately need her to work. But, the load they are required to keep up with in college is much more rigorous and time-consuming than when I was in college. She literally doesn’t have the spare time. She gets super stressed and anxious just thinking about the possibility of adding a job.
