Do you ever get that eerie feeling when you've been there before? Like you're repeating the same event? I had that feeling this morning, and it wasn't good. Once again, my daughter decided that not only did she not need to take her medication, she also didn't need to get dressed. On top of that, she decided … Continue reading Déja Vu
Emotions. We struggle daily with those (who doesn't, though?). I thought that as the kids got older, they'd learn how to cope with them a little better, but when you've got two kids with ADHD, it gets a little more complicated.
