I guess my concern is more about treatment than diagnosis. I’ve been researching how to work with it behaviorally, and can an ADHD mom do this for the whole family. I guess I had some self-doubt– Should I be more forgiving of my daughter’s procrastination and emotional outbursts as symptoms of ADHD or is she playing me and I should be firmer with her?
Just because I have it, does that qualify me to identify it in my own kid so I can discipline or guide accordingly?
