2 Comments: Have a Teen with ADHD? Encourage Communication & Avoid the Drama
Hi, I’m 17 years old and I’ve noticed on this website there isn’t a single article about being a teenager and having ADHD from a teenagers perspective. All the articles are geared towards parents understanding more about their child. Therefore, it’s very hard for me to engage with these articles as I’m not a child who needs better handling nor can I relate to the adult ADHD issues that talk about dealing with marriage, work or having children. I understand teenagers aren’t necessarily qualified to write an essay on ADHD but could someone at least write an article that addresses teenagers as the audience themselves instead of our parents? If so, that would be much appreciated.
