ADHD Awareness Week is October 14 – 20, 2012. We were chosen to parent a child with ADHD, so this week is all about awareness and giving you a peek into our world. There are seven facts listed on the ADHD Awareness Week web page that I thought I would share this week – one each day. Here’s fact five:
Fact #5: ADHD is not benign.
ADHD is not going away, and ignoring it does not make it better. Children with untreated ADHD turn into adults with untreated ADHD. Children with ADHD struggle to be successful in school, and they turn into adults who struggle to meet the demands of their jobs. Even if you’re not a fan of medication, there are many other ways to treat ADHD (another fact coming up on Saturday). Don’t ignore it.
Peace and Blessings!
