My son is 16 and has inattentive ADHD. We've tried methyphenidate and Vyvanse and both were a disaster. They made him very sick and I never want to relive that again. He's a junior. His freshman year he didn't do too badly academically, but I had to watch him like a hawk. If I didn't he would get lost. Every single night I was on Powerschool. He made it through. 10th grade year started rough. He made it through the first semester with a 504 plan and a LOT of help from me. Well, Covid hit and he was at home. When that happened, it was like pulling teeth to get him to do work. The only schoolwork he does is math with the help of a paid tutor. My husband and I are not so great at math, so this subject he has to do. The other subjects, I started to do the work. All of sudden, I'm doing all his assignments! Im afraid if he does it on his own and I don't help, he will fail. He won't work with me, he tries to do it and can't stick with it. He has trouble working on his own. I'm embarrassed I've let it get this way. I never thought this would be my life. He is too close to graduating to fail. I'm sad because I know this isn't preparing him for life or success. I want to stop being a helicopter parent, but don't know how to stop it. Things have to change.
