Re: Is parenting to blame for ADHD? Finally a clear and hard NO

Divorce is an ACE.

I do not think divorce causes ADHD, but divorce certainly could make it worse.

I do not think divorce always make things worse, if a healthy attunement relationship is kept and emphasized.

No, that is not Dr. Mate’s “model”

You really should quote Dr Mate for accuracy.
