I’m a typical mother who attends mother’s group meeting at local church. I’m looking forward to get together with those lovely and pretty ladies as I am every week because we also take this time for sharing parenting tips, fellowship and swapping stories about our little ones. Normally, we just have a lighthearted topic but there are situations wherein some moms are opening up and talking about the struggles they go through with ADHD medication. This is actually when it becomes a real blessing to become a part of such an understanding and supportive group.
From the time being that I am part of the group, I realized one thing and that is that we all have a common denominator. It is that no family has figured out everything, no parents know exactly what they are doing and there’s no right way of raising a child. There are occasions to which I am checking my social media accounts and seeing inspiration posts and ideas that I could personally try. I am seeing perfectly mid century modern furniture in the living room, stark walls, white kitchens and something that real mothers would love to have in their own home. While I am browsing, I saw parents with kids who take ADHD medication and then I realize how hard life is raising a child with such condition.
Our group doesn’t delve on visually heavy platforms like those that see the basic aspects of life. But it is not what we are thinking because we are thinking more of how our life would be if we don’t have to deal with tricycle knicks on floorboards, peanut butter on the walls, scattered kitchenware. This idea alone is very refreshing and appealing and it’s not a big surprise why it is enthralling everyone of us.
It’s just a freeing thought but no parents have it figured out. There are parents who are going to new places to have a change of scenery, trying new things that are fun and bring memorable experience and many other things. There are some that are using prescription ADHD medication in an effort to control the hyperactivity level of their children while others attend weekly therapy sessions. To make it simpler, parents have unique way of dealing with it and keeping their children happy.
Basically, meeting those parents gave me a breath of fresh air to what approach to be taken in raising a child with ADHD condition. This has just given me ideas to try similar to giving my child ADHD medication. Well I think, giving your child with prescription ADHD medication and doing activities that are out of the usual routine every now and then can be a good idea.
