@craigbkk Sorry to hear you’re having such a hard time and thank you for reading and responding to my post. If I can let even one parent know they are not alone, it was worth it to write. I wish that parents of neurotypical kids could visit this forum so that they would see how hard we all work, how we’re willing to do anything, how we’re pulling our hair out daily. One of the toughest things about parenting an ADHD kid is the judgment from other parents and from teachers and their well-meaning suggestions like “have you spoken to someone about this?”, “have you changed his diet?”, “have you explained the consequences”? My answer is always the same “Yes, yes, yes and more yes, we have tried everything, over and over again.” Hugs to you and good luck!
