A Parent’s Journey: A Child With ADHD

In this Voices of Compassion episode, we talk candidly about what parenting a child with ADHD is really like — the challenges, joys, worries and wonder. Hear from Lauren Sims, the mom of a child with ADHD, as she shares her real-life personal journey filled with encouragement, empathy and strategies to set your child up for success.

How do you know when it’s time to get help? Is medication necessary? What kind of impact will your child’s behavior have on the rest of the family? While we may sometimes wish that our kids came with an instruction manual, remember that you are doing the best you can and so is your child. And you are not alone.
