There is always help for your family too. The same people who can help you, can help your family – bringing them to a greater understanding of ADHD and to better cope with the challenges it can bring. There are also support groups that can offer practical strategies that might work for your family by sharing and listening with friendly support from other parents.
Sometimes knowing you are not the only one out there dealing with ADHD can be reassuring. Families can endure high costs, family pressures and challenges when ADHD forms part of the family dynamics. It is important to realise that your family are there to help and talking through issues can help them understand how you are feeling and learn more about your needs.
