Truth? My son is 12 and I still set his clothes in a pile in the chair next to him at the breakfast table so he can change and head straight out the door. If I send him upstairs to his room to get dressed he will start down the rabbit hole of distractions in there and I’ll never get him back down. Should he be able to do it without my pulling out his clothes for him? Yes. But with all the battles there are to fight when ADHD is in the mix, this is one I’ve chosen to let go of. Getting everyone to school on time with as little drama as possible is more valuable than making him take that extra step of responsibility at this point in our lives.
