Dealing with ADHD children on vacation

Message length 300 characters recommended

This can actually be quite easy if the ADHD is under control in regular situations. What I have found is that if your child is medicated then you need to continue medication at the same time every day when you are on vacation. Make sure you have very firm rules in place and have an idea of how you will deal with discipline issues while you are away from home, as well.

Also keep in mind that it is totally normal for kids to be a little bit wild, over stimulated and even a bit ornery during vacations. Both ADHD and non ADHD kids run into those issues!

You know, I don't think any mother aims to be a single mom. I didn't wish for that, but it happened.
