ADHD Easing Emotional Escalation
ADHD causes self-regulation issues. This means when things don’t go their way, they might freak out. If they are stressed (and they have big stress over some pretty basic stuff!), they might freak out. When they’re mad, they may not be just “mad”. They might blow a gasket. Overreaction is the name of the game with ADHD.
Understand why it’s happening, how to help them regulate, and how to keep yourself from making it worse (and losing your mind in the process).
