I have a 14 year old son who has ADHD. He lost his father (my sposue) to esophageal cancer at 1 1/2 years ago, and this has been a part of our lives that shook us both down to the last neuron. Grief, loss, depression and ADHD symptoms hae followed him and depression for me since that time. He is in a residential treatment center, and making some progress, but regressed alot this weekend. Technology is an obsession with him (IPODS). I pray that he gets better and I am able to parent him, but there have been so many problems that are brought up from the past when battle (conflict) ensues. He held up a knife to his kneck today, and I was afraid he would really hurt himself. Please pray for my son and any advice for me what be really a blessing. Thank you for your kindness.

Thank you Nora for praying. We need some divine intervention to be able to live in the same home again. I love my son and want him back home, but he needs the prayers for his grief, loss and ADHD symptoms. Thank you again!!! Blessings, Sue

Sue,

As you know, parenting is difficult under the best of conditions. What you are enduring is a very heavy cross. I pray Our Blessed Lord is with you and your son every step of the way. May the Sacred Heart of Jesus embrace you both in His loving arms.


Blessings, love, peace and comfort I pray coming your way, Praying hug rose

Sue, I will certainly pray for you and your son. But, I am wondering if you have any kind of support group for yourself as I think that would be most beneficial to you. Perhaps there is a support group for ADHD parents or for parents with children in residential treatment. It is important for you to have someone - whether it be a support group, psychologist/therapist/doctor you trust - to be able to talk through these issues now at this critical time. Praying
