    What a great argument against bad parenting being the “cause” of ADHD, as so many naysayers want to project on us. ADHD behaviors can certainly cause is to make bad parenting decisions out of frustration at times, but no parent is perfect, even parents of neurotypical kids.

    Excellent rebuttal!

      Thank you so much for your compliment, Penny. I’m not a parent of an ADHD child, but I was part of that dynamic for a long time … as the child.

      Thanks for reading my blog and for the comment,
