Is homework hijacking your evenings? Do you dread tests more than your child does? Are you “helping” more than you should? Do you lie awake at night worrying about your child’s success at school? The fine line between supporting your child with ADHD and enabling him or her is a blurred one for most parents, especially when it comes to schoolwork. Knowing when to let your child manage assignments on his own (and risk failure), and when it is appropriate to support him with guidance and assistance is incredibly tough. Here, learn how to transfer responsibility to your child so that she will become an independent student over time.
