Parenting a child with ADHD often causes one to question their knowledge, skills and abilities as a parent.

Nothing you do seems to work consistently. All the advice that comes from others makes the parent feel inadequate.

It often seems that the ADHD child is running the entire household and all decisions seem to focus on the needs of that one child.

Living with ADHD symptoms is difficult enough for an individual. Being in a relationship with an  ADHDer or for an individual with ADHD is an adventure! ADHDers love the stimulation and brain chemistry associated with being in love. Not only that, their spontaneity, impulsivity, and activity often make the ADHDer attractive to prospective partners as nothing is ever boring, repetitive or predictable!
