Q&A with Dr. H: How Do I Help My Son Help Himself?

Q&A with Dr. H: How Do I Help My Son Help Himself?

Today’s question comes from Cindy, a concerned parent. She emailed Distraction and wrote in part, “Our 31 year old son has the most incredible “race car brain with bicycle brakes” that are in desperate need of maintenance… As parents of an adult with ADHD we struggle with how to help our son. How do we help him help himself?”

Dr. Hallowell responds by offering up a few ideas and encourages Cindy to jump in and help. “Sink or swim? In our world you sink,” he says in this episode. “So you need to jump in there with life jackets…” he continues.
