    Hey there! My name is Emma and I am 17 years old and in my senior year of high school! Oh yeah. I have ADHD!

    I understand having a child/teen with ADHD can be very confusing and frustrating (God bless my poor parents) so I thought it’d be nice to post something on here where parents can ask me questions about their children and I will try to answer them as best as I can! Of course, I can’t speak for every child but I can give you some more insight into our unique brains!

    Ask away!

    Hi firefly

    I am a parent of a 13 year old ADHD. I guess his biggest struggles are at school and long written exams. He responds well orally but then in India there are no aspects for inclusion of children with different abilities. Sometimes I am afraid whether he will link his self worth with his marks.

    Hi firefly. My lucky kid got the trifecta of dyslexia, dysgraphia, and ADHD. He is 8 now and not on meds, but is seeing a psychologist. He has real problems with self worth and it scares me. If its hard for him now, I’m really worried about what his life will be like in middle and high school. Did you face any self esteem issues? If so, how did you manage?
