My poor little boy :(

Thursday, February 17, 2011

I don't know what to do with him sometimes. I know that he doesn't want to be naughty but he is so often. He gets discipline at home but he still tests all figures of authority that he comes in contact with ... I don't want to scare him or yell at him for his bad behavior ... I want him to learn from his mistakes so he can grow. It takes him so long to learn from mistakes sometimes that I wonder if he will ever learn at all. He is about to be 7 years old, and it seems the older he gets the worse off he gets. I think that I am going to start looking into a counselor for him to go and speak to. Maybe it will help both of us learn how to cope with his ADHD. I know that it has to be hard on him and it kills me inside.
I wish that he would just have a regular little brain so that he would have a much easier life :( I know that we all have challenges in life that we have to deal with it is just hard to see your children going through challenges. I guess we all wish that our children would be perfect... but with perfection would come no challenges and without challenges what kind of life experiences would you have really? I want my kids to experience life ... but only the good stuff ... LOL ... I know that isn't possible but we can all wish now can't we?

I wish I knew what to do to help him more than what I am doing now... I guess I will just continue being constant and hope for the best ... Tomorrow has to be a better day for him, cause today was HORRIBLE!!!!

    My granddaughter is 6 and also has ADHD. I keep her and her sister every day. You are right, it is a challenge. But, I have to remind myself that she is indeed special and that she is doing the best she can, she tries. I am sure it is harder on her than it is on us. She too challenges everyone in authority. I have to remember that we are so blessed to have her and that she is in good health and is very smart for her age, as I am sure your son is. My daughter and her husband are very good parents even though it is very difficult with an ADHD child (very stressful). The family attends church regularly and exposes her to the good and important things in life.

    Hang in there and give the little guy a hug for me. God Bless you both. emoticon

    Hello Sara,

    Sounds like you are having a tough day right along with your little guy. I have a son that is similar to what you talk about in this blog, yet he is older. I have come to accept who he is and I am learning to meet him at the place he is in without putting my dreams and hopes on him. I often wanted and still sometimes want him to conform to the normal, but as he told me he is special. Those words alone made me realize sometimes in life we have to listen to our children. I know the road is hard and I hope you and your son will find a place that makes you both happy and encouraged.

    Good luck and take care,

    Kristin
