Amen to that! My son is amazing and I know he is “a lot” for the world to handle. He was diagnosed with ADHD Hyperactive/Impulsive type last spring and we have loved, raised and supported a “high octane” boy before a diagnosis was attached to him. We always will, ADHD or not.
But man, if I had a dollar for every “look” we were shot, every side eye we have gotten or activity we were shunned or isolated from, I would be a rich woman (and would have shed fewer tears.)
We are all out here doing our best as parents and we ALL have our own hurdles to jump.
Be understanding, be kind, be inclusive.
