I absolutely agree with you. Everything needs to be checked and you have to be really mindful. This is a lot of courage and patience to both parents.

Re: Adhd parents: Does ADHD affect your ability to parent?

There are plenty of challenges. The need to hyperfocus to get anything done creates many hazards. Ive found that, fixating on my last mistake instead of my next challenge, and the emotional impulsivity to be the biggest issues.
The more support the better- that applies to any parent, but especially with ADHD, which can be a constant drain on your resources.

I often look at non ADHD adults and note how much more smoothly things go for them. They are notably more relaxed and calm.
