Friends, I am looking for ideas and/or articles on how we can improve my 6 year old mermaid (W/ ADHD and Sensory characteristics) to get up and get going!
Her routine is so heavy with our constant push - push to follow her routine. She is on meds but they can't be taken until she has eaten a good breakfast because she is a very tall and thin beauty.
We do wake her up and then give her 10 mins for a slow wake up. This alone has helped but then when it is time for food and clothes, the combative responses start. I admit we have not done our part in being very patient so we are working to 2 things at the same time - undo some unhealthy parent lead patterns and exchange with more support while she follows her routine.
I could write pages about our mornings, but I won't because I know that you know!
Instead, I will be open up to your helpful suggestions!
Thank you - from my heart to yours!
