This week’s Tuesday Topic comes from Sandee who wrote:
I have 4 children, all 12 and under. Two daughters adopted, one from China (7) and one from Ethiopia (11) and I have two sons homegrown, 12 and 10. With my children being youngish, how do you explain to the others when one child in particular has some issues (ADHD and some attachment issues)…in a way that they would:
a)understand and yet
b) keep it confidential.
Or do you just work with your child with challenges and not try to explain why she is how she is to the other kids.
I find the others getting quite angry and exasperated with her behavior…. and expecting her to respond and act like everyone else would to correction, or even themselves rebutting correction, because she does.
How do you handle this in your family? This is a great question for so many of us. Remember my angst over special foods for Dimples — beef jerky anyone?
Please take a moment to send your thoughts my way by leaving a comment. I know that Sandee will appreciate hearing from you and your words will reach many other moms who share this same problem.
I look forward to hearing from you!
