"Most teachers and adults could benefit from pretending that all kids in their class have ADHD - what is good for kids with ADHD is good for all kids."
- Dr. Hallowell

I saw this quote recently, and it made ME stop and think. Large classrooms, over-scheduled children and teachers forced to teach to test-specific guidelines, have exponentially increased the importance of parents as advocates.

When you think back to your school days, do you think of preparing for an important history test? Probably not. More than likely, you remember the pain and anxiety of trying to fit in.

In my 20 Tips for Helping Kids with ADHD Succeed in School - I explain how you, as a parent, can help your child find a way to shine in situations that often cause turmoil.

My warmest wishes to you and your family,

Mindfulness Meditation for ADHD    
Cheryl Jacobs

There are many tasks throughout the day that require our attention. Attending to them requires that we self-regulate and maintain focus, especially difficult with ADHD. Research shows that we all have a limited amount of self-regulation resources and with ADHD the supply is even smaller. I like to think of it as a reservoir that requires refilling throughout the day as we continuously drain our supply. When the reservoir is empty, we have difficulty focusing and coping; our will power is deleted. Mindfulness interventions can refill the reservoir.
