The Challenges of ADHD

ADHD Is Rising

As a behavioral condition that manifests in a number of different symptoms over time, ADHD can affect performance in the classroom and at home.

challenge of ADHD is that it’s an instance of an internal condition externalized in the form of stress on parents, teachers, and other students.

For parents, it can be indescribably frustrating to see your children struggle, and causing difficulties for teachers and other students as well.

Clinical studies were conducted which intended to test the emotional strain on parents of kids with ADHD, incidental to their children’s struggles with symptoms. The study found that the ups and downs of the children have a consistent relationship with a parent’s mood.

Parenting a Child With ADHD

It requires a kind of constant vigilance, a high level of energy, well-tested patience. The stress involved in all parties can take a massive toll on mental and physical health.

Other Challenges of ADHD

ADHD is an instance of an internal condition that is very much affected by stimuli and feedback from the outside world. Very often, a child with ADHD is extremely bright, but the rigid, systematic routines of the classroom are not necessarily designed with these unique youngsters in mind.

A sheer lack of community resources can alienate a child, resulting in unchecked behaviors that are burdensome in concentric circles, ever-widening as the child grows, and over time, the stresses of non-conformity manifest in often unpredictable ways.

All-too-often, the outdated institutional paradigms we have inherited are simply feeding the problems of society.

ADHD Awareness Month

October shines a light that deserves to be shined. We have seen the fruits of this cycle from an up close and personal perspective. There are extremely positive strategies for dealing with ADHD, and there are negative strategies. We have seen the outcomes of those strategies, and it’s our belief that good society must be built on a foundation of compassion and inclusiveness. As we all know, it takes a village to raise a child. We must learn to see ourselves and others as part of a global village and build out new institutions which expand love and compassion.
