Connections are CRITICAL

Reflecting on the recent news events in the United States, I encourage you to make it a point to rediscover the goodness in people. It is time to get to know each other again, especially people who disagree with us.

I address the importance of connections in S3 Mini 8. So please take a few minutes and LISTEN HERE to  learn why connections are important.

Perhaps you’ll be inspired to reach out, start a dialogue, listen and try to understand another’s point of view. Remember understanding doesn’t mean you have to agree.

Let’s recognize that most people are good people, that most people will do you a favor, that most people want the same things in life for themselves and their families that you do, and that most people will make sacrifices for the common good.

Connection is like the keys in the ignition. The keys are there, waiting to be taken. We only have to reach in.”

ADHD and College

If you don’t have ADHD, it is difficult enough to make the transition from home to a college or university. If you do have ADHD, it is perilous far beyond what most people imagine. If you do not prepare in advance, the changes are good that you will stumble.

In this special Distraction episode on Why College Can Be Daunting For ADHDers  sponsored by Landmark College, Jessica McCabe from How to ADHD, shares the problems she faced  with new demands and less support in college.

To avoid the dangers of college, information and preparation make all the difference. First of all, parents and students should know in advance that going from home to college means going from a place of dependence and high supervision to a place of independence and low supervision. It is a jarring, albeit longed-for transition, one that students who have ADHD are particularly ill-equipped to handle. Parents and students ought to prepare for this transition methodically, instead of simply letting the student jump into the college environment literally overnight, hoping he or she can swim.

Even if your child does not have ADHD, I recommend that you begin during senior year of high school to prepare your child for the transition to college. If your child does have ADHD, this is crucial. Once  your child gets into college, you should then assist him or her to organize and run their life. You should not stop supervising them.
