It does get better! Middle school is tough under the best circumstances. Remember that our kiddos are 3-4 behind emotionally so while they may be in middle school and experiencing puberty related issues, the rest of them isn’t ready yet. Middle school for my two ADDers was HELL, and that’s putting it lightly. High school was a bit easier, but it’s a long, bumpy road and then they grow up and you remember why you love them.
