Friday I called my son's guidance counselor because I know they are working on the upcoming schedules. He will be in 9th grade in September. I want him to be situated in a good place. It was an hour conversation, of going over every class. I was happy I was happy to get him also into a study class that will help him organize and study etc. I felt positive hanging up the phone that I did this.
Feeling positive that I spoke to my s... - CHADD's ADHD Pare...
If you could find an older high school kid who does a good job at this who could "mentor" him, like a senior that would be amazing. Do you know any other parents? Since he has 4 years a leader would be great, maybe next time you talk with the principal something to think about. It is so much to handle as a young kid.. Kid learn best from other kids..
Best of luck.
This is why I am so happy I found this group. The people in my community do not talk openly about their children living with ADHD.
Yes great ideas about a senior something to look into .
My son is a big baseball player. It's aall year round. He trains on the off season
This year, if he fails any of his classes they will not allow him to ay. So o know he loves playing I am hoping this will keep him motivated as well as his team mates a d coaches.
My son is about to begin his sophomore year in college. His transition to high school was very difficult. He did poorly first semester. It was a combination of school support and parent involvement that made him successful. He would meet with his guidance counselor once a week to go over his folders, his locker and class assignments. His dad checked his grades every day online to see if assignments were missing, etc. at this age, it’s hard to keep an adhd kid accountable. Be prepared for hard work on your end and constant involvement with the school. They will not do it for you. Stay on top of it and your son will be successful. My son also played football. The importance of sports to these kids cannot be under rated. It so helps to keep them on track. Good luck!
