Louis_Smith_2012_balconyWhen your child is diagnosed with ADHD it can be a worry – and I know from experience that bringing up an ADHD kid isn’t easy! When my son was younger I really used to worry about his future – how on earth would he hold down a job when he couldn’t even settle down in class? How would he find a partner or make friends or start a family when he was flying off the handle every five minutes? He’s now a teenager and while he still has ADHD, he has learnt techniques to help him control his behaviour and I am a lot more confident about his future. And he’s in good company – because there are lots of famous, successful people who have either been diagnosed with ADHD or who appear to have the symptoms. Once you see the names on this list, and realise how well they turned out, your mind may feel more at ease about your own ADHD kid!
