How do you tell your ADHD son that it is okay to fail? That is it okay to feel bad about something but shouldn't let that one failure stop you from pursuing your dreams?
It is hard for me to read through my son's mind. He speaks his mind all the time, but to comprehend how he thinks and why he acts in a certain way, can truly be a challenge to me.
He is a smart boy. No doubt about it. But when he is stuck on something, he tends to stop and get frustrated. No matter how many times I've told him to move on to the next question and just come back to that one, he can't seem to do so. He can't seem to move on past the question that he couldn't figure out.
Please share your experience and thoughts... I just might learn a few things from you to better help my son!
I always wonder what my kids' future would be like. I am a nagging mom, simply because I want them to excel as best as they can. If I don't nag my son about doing his homework, he may end up in high school forever.
When I ask them what they want to be when they grow up, they can't give me a straight answer, yet. I believe my son should be a sports caster or radio announcer or news reporter, simply because he loves to talk and he can talk non-stop. I think he would also be a good movie director because he is a good critic on movies.
But the best is yet to come... I will just have to wait and see what your future holds for you!
"The only time you will run out of chances is when you stop taking them."Do you believe in this? Opportunities will keep on coming to your door, it is a matter of whether you are going to open the door and welcome it in? Or you are going to keep your door shut and be content with what you have.
Sometimes, change can be scary. But without change, our lives will never move forward! Do we really want to be stuck in the same path all our lives? Or do we want to explore new paths to discover new places/things?
I'd say we open our doors and welcome opportunities! I'd say we travel to the path other people won't even dare go to!

About my ADHD son
Please do not hesitate to leave me a message so I can return the visit. Have a great day everyone!
I was just at my son's school yesterday. I had to meet with the Vice Principal and his TA to discuss his work and improvements at school. He is on grade 10 and he chose a self-directed school. It simply means that you study at your own pace and on your own. You can move faster than your batch mates or you can be slower than the rest. It is totally up to you.
Almost 2 months of school and my son is way too much behind. Sad to say, he only did 5 units out of 30-40 units that the average student would have done by now. :-( So we have a lot of catching up to do! I guess I am back to being the nagging assignment mom.
He is a smart kid and he wanted to show people that he can do it on his own. But how can he find his motivation? How can I help him do work on his own? Please help me!!! I am totally at a lost.

This post brought to you by Insurance Hunter. All opinions are 100% mine.
A co-worker of mine, who live one block from a school zone, just received a radar ticket for running 50 km on a 30 km school zone. If I remember correctly, his fine was $125.
Now that both my kids are taking public transit to and from school, I worry about reckless drivers like my co-worker. Many drivers put children at risk by breaking traffic laws and violating safety procedures in school zones. I hope the people would respect school zones traffic rules as there are hundreds of kids in the area.
Here's a brief excerpts from Insurance Hunter’s survey on driver safety in school zones:
~ 80% witness drivers violating safety procedures in school zone
~ 68% witness drivers talking or texting on the phone
~ 74% witness drivers over speeding on school zone
~ 66% of respondents’ drive their children to school which makes the drop off/pick up zones overcrowded
~ out of that, 83% rarely carpooled
Shocking isn't it? Please take time to read the rest of the survey and ask yourself this: Are you one of these "irresponsible" driver?
Ontario School Zone Safety Survey shows that three quarters of parents polled have witness drivers, young and old, to be breaking the law while in a school zone too.
InsuranceHunter.ca is a hassle-free, online auto insurance comparison website which provides comparative quotes not only for auto, but for home and travel insurance for residents of Ontario. I should know because I used to get my insurance with them when we were still living in Ontario.
What have I got myself into? I ask my Manager to train me so that I can be more effective in my job. Now, I am enrolled in 3 different (all related) online courses!
Online courses are good in such a way that you study at your own convenience. Your own time, your own pace. The online support was also on the pro side since people do help each other. One would post their questions on the forum, and within minutes, you will get a reply either from the instructor or from one of your cyberspace classmate.
One just have to find the energy to study on their own!
So wish me luck! I have exams to take in order to get my certification. Hope I pass them all!
My favorite season of all...
And with this season, it means it is back to school for me. I am currently taking 2 online courses. I do hope that I can pass both courses. :-) Wish me luck! On top of that, I got a full time job and a part time to do and of course a full time housewife and a mother of 2. Now who says life is easy?
