What’s the Worst Learning Disability? Fear!

What’s the worst learning disability? Fear! Be bold. Never be afraid to make mistakes. Next time you make a mistake, your teacher should say to you, “Good for you,” and you should say to yourself, “Goof for me,” because now you’re trying. If you’re not willing to look bad at first, you’ll never, ever look as good as you could.

It’s Hard To Let Go of the ADHD College Student

Going to college is a rite of passage.  The time for college finally arrives, and with considerable fanfare our children go: they go away from home, friends, and family, and go toward a “grown up” life of freedom and independence.

As this time arrives, parents and children often have powerful and competing urges on both sides: to hold on tight and never let go, or to sever all connections and begin anew.  Of course many parents tend toward the former urge, while their adolescents yearn for the latter.  If your child has ADHD or LD, you may feel even more acutely the urge to hold tight.  Your child may be impulsive; he or she may seem emotionally unprepared for the challenges ahead, and may have only a vague understanding of the sometimes tedious and always disciplined work required at college.  You may be particularly aware of all the effort “behind the scenes” that went into getting your child even this far – the homework assistance, the teachers meetings, the evaluations and treatments – the countless hours of “extra help” along the way.  Read the entire article here.
