This week we are talking all about ADHD. Often, parents of kids with ADHD will describe them as "being driven by a motor," which can be exhausting as a parent trying to keep up with your child!
So what do you do about it? And how do you know the difference between normal childhood energy and possibly early ADHD indicators?
That's exactly what we're discussing this week. Dr. Phelan shares great information like:
What exactly is ADHD?
At what age it might start showing up in kids
