    I was homeschooled and have ADHD. Just make sure your children's learning disabilities are catered to. Adderal XR helps me today, I'm a straight A student in college.

Using the History Channel

by The Young Family on 12-15-2011 at 03:07 PM
Last night while the boys were playing I came across on the H2 (History Channel) a program called 'how the states got their shape'.
I was pleased to see that they talked about the colonial times which my 7th grader was currently studying in Social Studies.
It was wonderful how the events on the program said a lot of the same things the lessons did.
It really tied it all together.

Child with passive-aggressive tendencies

by The Young Family on 12-15-2011 at 03:01 PM
I know I have written about my sons and mine LD and that we are ADHD. I know any of you out there with ADHD can understand that part. Well add another 'quirk' for the lack of a better term, and boy howdy, management becomes frustrating.

Inspiration wall

If any of you came across my blog on will probably already be familiar with this.

I went on line and copied off things about people that are dyslexic. I blew some up and shrunk some

Everyone is an individual!!

I often have to remind myself that all three of us (Nick, Alex and myself) are individuals. I tend to think just because I know something they should. To some of you this might sound obsurd. But to a person that is ADHD and dyslexic it is pretty normal.

My youngest one, Alex, is like me in a lot of ways. He wants to get it done and get it done now. It is often hard to get him to stop at what we have 'coined' "pods". When you open up a lesson and it opens up one to how every

At first, I sat down and typed out what we needed to do and what wanted to get accomplished.

Then later, I found that with all three of us being ADHD and dyslexic a strict schedule would not work.

So parents, don't feel bad if you are not sticking to a hard and fast schedule. Whatever works for you is fine, and don't let anyone make you feel it is not.

I am not only
