Reply To: Teen in High School


My daughter is in her final year also and was diagnosed with ADD when she was 6. I’m probably a very bad mother but I sat down and helped her with her major work for HCS. We’re in Australia. She was getting high anxiety and stressed to the max but wanted to do the HSC and so I have supported her, done large portions of the assignments and got her a job to start when she leaves school. I’ve told her many times that I’d rather her be emotionally intelligent than academic and she is. She will be able to go to work and be happy. She may not become the CEO of a multi national corporation but she will be happy. Sorry, that may not be what you want to hear but lots of love is the best for all. By the way, he’s also 17…
