5 Tips for Homeschooling ADHD Children

Homeschooling is difficult enough for parents who attempt it. Add in ADHD, and you have a recipe for frustration for both the parent and the child.

Sam hates being serious.
I know this from personal experience. Sam has ADHD, with emphasis on the H (hyperactivity). In fact, the only thing Sam can really focus on is video games, which is why I'm glad there are so many educational video games out there!

Symptoms of ADHD in Girls

ADHD is often times misdiagnosed in girls because the symptoms for hyperactivity present differently. Girls also tend to hide it better than boys since it's typically socially unacceptable for a girl to run around like a chicken with her head cut off. It's expected that boys are going to be rambunctious. Girls not so much.

2014 Summer Reading List

I love to read, but with all the writing I do, plus homeschooling, plus my part time job, I don't really get a lot of time to do so. I have found that this has made my writing suffer, reading and writing go hand in hand. So I decided I'm going to have to find the time to read.

Since Sam doesn't really like to read, I decided to make both of us try a summer reading challenge. We're both going to try to read seven to 10 books, and we'll be keeping a log for accountability.

Sam actually reading!!
