Only when keeping track of work plus 3 kids nearly killed me–STUPID things were also incredibly hard for me–AND I was trying to help our ADHD son that I realized that I was a classic girl with ADHD.
This made me think of something- does the daughter have kids of her own yet? I developed compassion for my parents when I became a parent and even more so when my daughter changed from a crying potato into a person with her own thoughts, dreams, likes, and dislikes. I was a total mess as a young woman and would have felt similarly to the daughter in the original post. Now that I am older and a mother, I don’t know why I was so harsh. There are few better examples of hindsight bias than the ones many young adults exhibit when looking back on how they were raised.
