The Challenges of Raising Our ADHD Son

Low Intensity Nightmare

Posted by One Tired Mama on August 1, 2007

“There is a lot of yelling, anger, physical pushing and controlling, even violence.  Or there may be abondonment of the family’s dream of living in warmth and love.  Parents flee into their own favorite escape modes.  They become cut off from each other, watching TV, staying away from home, overworking, or developing intimacies with other adults, where they can find solace from the low intensity nightmare that is ‘life at my house.'”  (Survival Strategies For Parenting Your ADD Child, by George T. Lynn)
