Yes!!!!! We have to throw out every belief of what “parents are supposed to do” and “what childhood is supposed to be” and “what success looks like” when parenting kids with ADHD (and “high-functioning” autism). As long as you’re stuck in supposed to and should zones, you can succeed and your child’s success could be delayed (or even derailed). So very important!
