“My son hated going to therapy; he complained that the therapist tried to get him to talk about feelings every week.”
“We’ve tried counseling multiple times, but my son really did not get anything out of it.”
“My son refuses to go to his ‘lunch bunch’ social skills group at school. He says all the kids in it are weird.”
The questions sent to ADDitude’s ADHD in Boys expert, social worker Ryan Wexelblatt, come from parents across the country who face a common challenge: How do you help a boy with ADHD who struggles to establish and maintain friendships, master his executive functions, and take responsibility for his own actions?
- “Ryan was the best presenter I’ve heard in the 4 years I’ve been learning about how to parent my now 10-year-old son.
- “This was the most informative and helpful information about ADHD I have ever heard. He really spoke so many truths, it was unbelievable.”
- “The focus on boys is appreciated & needed!”
