Are We Doing Everything We Can for Our ADHD Kiddos?

Almost all parents love their kiddos, and even their kids that are diagnosed with ADHD.  But lets be honest, they can be challenging to the Nth degree.  Most of us feel like "I'm doing EVERYTHING!!!" But I wonder, are we?  Maybe we are doing 95% of everything we can do, but there is still 5% that could be the determining factor in making ours and our kids lives easier.

I read a book by Kim Frank and Susan Smith-Rex called 102 Practical Strategies for Reducing the Deficit that, even with my masters level training blew my socks off with excellent, practical, and research-based information.  I realized that I still had plenty to learn.  My guess is, so do you.  Maybe, juuuust maybe you have assimilated all the knowledge that there is to know about the diagnosis but even then, a kiddo at age 9 with ADHD is different from a 16 year old with ADHD.  The variable are always changing.

I'm not saying this to be hurtful, condescending, or chastising.  I'm saying this to be evaluative.  I'm saying these things to myself.  If you want to learn more strategies to use with your ADHD kiddo, check out Episode 84 on ADHD and what we can do
