#Write31Days, anxiety in children, conditions, family


This is Day 15 of a 31-Day Series called Bear in Mind: Cubisms.

October is ADHD Awareness Month.  If you’ve followed my blog for awhile, you’ve read plenty of posts about Cub 1.  He was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of six before going into the first grade.  We have struggled at times with parenting him and in helping him to manage himself at school and at home.  As he has gotten older, Cub 1 has become a great manager of his own condition (as he likes to call it).  As a matter of fact, his favorite phrase is “…you know, I have a condition…” and he tries to use it as his excuse for any and everything when he is at fault.  In addition to his ADHD “condition”, there’s his anxiety condition, his vision condition, his fear of spiders condition, his claustrophobia condition, his need to exercise condition, his inability to tolerate loud noises condition (only when it comes to his cub siblings), and I’m sure there’s more!  It’s become the running joke around our house.

This is his “can’t smile for a picture” condition: 

This is his “curiosity” condition:

This is his “hunger” condition:

Seriously though, if you have parented or are parenting a cub that doesn’t fit nicely into the cookie cutter world of public school, it is extremely important for you to speak up for them.  You are their best advocate!

  1. From the first moment I met PB, MB, and Cub 1, I loved their family and the new cubs too!. Over a decade of watching cub 1 grow up, I’m so happy to witness his maturity. So society says he has ADHD, well cub 1 is a natural born leader. I’ve watched him sit in the front pews of churches listening and watching the mighty preacher PB spread the word of God! Now cub 1 has the formation and charismatic charm of a people’s preacher. His speaking voice is beyond his years. He’s learned from the best. I witness hus energetic kid when with he is with his peers. But he never forgets his elders, always greeting all with compassion. I look forward to my hug every Sunday. And yes MB is correct he loves good home cooking. I owe him something special for all of his hatd work. He is his Father and Mother’s child!
    So PB and MB get ready and see what the Lord has in store for cub 1
