Parenting a Child with ADHD

By July 27, 2010

Follow me on:

"A child being diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is very much different than his getting diagnosed with strep throat, a broken arm or diabetes. Although they are all medical conditions, with ADHD, many parents either openly or in the back of their minds wonder if their child's ADHD is because of some failure on their part. I thought it would be easier being a Pediatrician who cares for and sees so many success stories among his patients with ADHD, but it wasn't." -- Dr. John Sardo
