Is it normal to feel frustrated with my child with ADHD and how can I deal with it?

ANSWER

All parents find themselves frustrated at times, and raising a child with ADHD has its own set of challenges. It's natural to have needs and questions.

When you're feeling overwhelmed, talk to someone about it. Look for a support group, or see a mental health professional to help you deal with your emotions and reactions so you can be a more effective parent. Family counseling may help, too.
