The most common mistake parents make is forgetting the child has ADHD. Yep, I do this all the time. I think, “My _____ -year-old should be able to do this independently by now.” And then I get frustrated and lose my temper. But of course, because of the disorder, he can’t. Then, the most harmful mistake is disregarding the diagnosis and trying to force the child to do what he cannot. Best quotable: “As my uncle (who had ADD) used to say, ‘When all else fails, ignorant people try wielding a bigger sledgehammer.’” p. 40-41
