ADHD is highly genetic.
If you’re looking at a diagnosis of ADHD for your child, it may be time to take a good look in the mirror. You may want to look at your spouse/partner/co-parent, but that’s not your job, that’s theirs.
Do your best to be open and curious, learn about the symptoms and traits, and take an honest assessment of yourself.
The good news? If you have it, you can begin to learn how to manage it better than you may be doing it today. And what an opportunity to empathize with your kid, and learn to help them manage their ADHD by modeling it for them!
