Thank you for this. The last part of the article put a lump in my throat. I found myself so angry with the school situation, up at night, thinking about all the important social & educational aspects my children are missing out on. “My child has ADHD! Do you know what this is doing to her?” Lamenting, ranting, raging, sick with the thought of it all. Then I realized, after feeling exhausted, that being like this was doing nothing but bringing more negative energy to the situation & everyone. Now I try hard to make a conscious effort to be positive, to be grateful, to be calm, to be a stable force. Children deserve our shift in perspective.
