When my eight year old daughter with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is in school, I hate it almost as much as she does. For about ten months of the year, she is in a classroom designed for students expected to sit down, sit still, and conform, but she was designed to be constantly moving, fidgeting, and thinking outside the box.

If your child has ADHD and is between the ages of...

We made it to Friday! *high fives and wine all around* Welcome to this week’s Wound Up, where we can all laugh about the hilarious (and sometimes downright crazy) things our children with ADHD (and ourselves) did and said during the week.
