When our son hit middle school (12-14 years old) lots of new issues appeared. We weren’t sure how much was Adhd, adoption or just general puberty issues. We started taking him to a therapist to help us sort through it all. She has been a life saver for him and our family. So many things are tied to puberty & growing up in general but our kiddos with ADHD seem to struggle more than the average kid . Having a third party involved to help him through these times, keep the communication open with us and help him learn some life skills too. I know lots of people don’t want to take their child to a therapist ; but for us & many families it’s extremely helpful.
