Is it just my DH?

DH has just asked our 15 yo (with ADHD) to "go down the garden, put the strimmer away, bring back the broom and sweep the path". Then he wondered why ds just went off to his room instead....

How can other people be expected to know how to act with him, when his own father hasn't a clue?!

Oh no, it's not just him. I do it as well, all the time. Completely forget that J can't remember multiple instructions. Must try harder, must try harder...

ditto....makes me so cross ....my husband still believes my AS/ADHD son will 'grow out of it'

my daughter will apparently meet a nice normal boy as she is pretty and they will get married and he will look after her

<must admit he only says this when he has had a drink, but he says it almost every time he has had a drink>

Our paed reckons its good to get this balance of one of us recognising the SN's of our sons...and the other behaving like the majority they will encounter outside of the shelter of our 4 walls!!!

(well...words to that effect...about the time when she also advised me to watch "Super Nanny"!!!)
