My son is 6 years old not yet diagnosed with ADHD as assessment completed over Zoom call and assessor not satisfied. Instead advised me to look online at sleep therapy !!!! However, the school referred him, they’re satisfied and I’m satisfied it’s ADHD awaiting ANOTHER assessment so I can be given correct help.
How do you cope with family members that don’t understand your child and judge your parenting skills instead?
I don’t know what to write I’m tired of being in public at family events and other people tell him off or shake their head at his behaviour. Am I supposed to scream “HE HAS ADHD”? I’ll tell him off and it goes in one ear n out the other then I look like I haven’t trained him well. He gets over emotional and has angry unexpected outburst. He now has a thing of jumping on sofas, if we are visiting family members he’ll jump all over their sofas he eventually stops after telling him off constantly !!
I need Support im a single mum with a 6 year old and a new born! I’m finding it soo embarrassing.
