Dear T

Dear T,

I am often at a loss as to what to do with you. How can I explain social norms to you that you have never experienced? How can I figure out what is you acting out and what is your ADHD acting out?

As a side note: Dear ADHD, I hate you.

I want to parent you with love and understand and compassion, but also with firm leadership. You are without question the most difficult kid I’ve ever had to parent, and I feel like I am flying blind. I wish you would just slow down for a second and let me rest. I sometimes wish that a different placement would be found for you that is perfect for you…but also not here. I feel so guilty for these thoughts. “Good moms” don’t wish they could be free of their children. I do love you, I just don’t always like you, because you make me so very tired.
