Navigating the rough waters of ADHD

By Stephen C. Schultz



Now that we are in the heart of the Holiday Season, it is easy to ascribe some childhood behaviors to excitement and anticipation of gifts. There are high fat foods and sugary treats that affect energy levels and metabolism. Everywhere you turn there are high stimulus lights, sounds and decorations.

While that may be the cause of some hyper behaviors, those who have children who suffer with ADHD know all too well there is much more to this physical ailment than meets the eye. Parents often describe embarrassing moments while in public and constant calls from schools. There are frustrating interactions, arguing and exhaustive research flanked by trips to the doctor and medication.




If you are new to the overwhelming world of having a child diagnosed with ADHD, I hope you find this information helpful and encouraging. If you are an old pro at this and a seasoned parent with lots of experience, I hope you will feel encouraged in your commitment and efforts. Feel free to share this information with family and friends who might find themselves  navigating the rough waters of ADHD.
