I was just diagnosed last month with ADHD - almost one year after giving birth to my first child. I understand that this group is for parents of children with ADHD, but I'm curious if any parents here have ADHD themselves?
My daughter will turn 1 in October and I find myself challenged when she experiences big emotions (we're just starting to enter toddler time here). Patience has always been a struggle for me, and now that I'm aware of my diagnosis, I'm wondering if any ADHD Parents have any tips for how I can be a better parent to my daughter and mitigate the frustration I feel when she has a very typical toddler tantrum. We're trying to go with the respectful/gentle parenting style. (And honestly, tantrum feels like too strong of a word to use here...she's a very easy going kid, which is what makes me feel a ton of shame because my patience wears thin so much faster than my husband's does when she is upset or cranky).
Any resources or tips on how I can manage my own behavior better as a parent?
