How will ADHD medication affect my life? What will my family and friends think if I tell them? Will ADHD medication change my personality?

What does your ADHD look like? Does it look like impulsiveness, hyperactivity and the irresistible urge to fidget – the signs we constantly hear about in men and boys?

What’s wrong with my child? Why won’t they listen? Why is everything a negotiation? Why do I have to keep yelling, making threats, and going from 0-100 in a split second? What’s wrong with me?

Mama–when was the last time you spent time alone? And no–I don’t mean the 2 minutes you spend in the bathroom while the dog scratches at the door and you can hear someone yelling “moooom??” from some distant corner of the house.

True or false: we all have the same 24 hours in a day…? If you said FALSE, you're 100% right, mama. Sure, we have 24 physical hours.

Hard work is essential to success…right? If we want teens to thrive they have to hustle, grind and work laboriously to achieve perfect SAT scores or a spot on the basketball team.

Caring for teens with anxiety and depression can be incredibly difficult. No teen is the same, and living with mental illness is different for every family.
