I'm not seeing the distinction between these two situations.

I've seen many recommendations for setting an alarm to take meds, go back
to sleep for another half an hour, then have an alarm for getting up once the
meds have kicked in. Seems to work better.

But ... the meds can interfere with appetite so getting some breakfast along
with meds sounds like a good idea.
Lunacie, I think we are crossing wavelengths or something. I'm saying get him up and stand there until he gets into the shower. And I'm saying Do NOT get him breakfast in bed.

ADHD is a serious condition, it can affect many things in a persons life. However, I am not seeing how ADHD is the cause of a person needing to be in bed for 20-60 minutes.

In this case the dad can't get the kid out of bed, dressed, and on his way to school. That's not ADHD that is a kid being a kid. Had the dad said "My son gets up fine but picking out his clothes seems to take 60 minutes"....that is for sure ADHD. This is a kid not wanting to get out of bed and start the day....like 99% of kids do across the US.
