How do you define summertime success? When the kids (and/or you) have ADHD, summertime can be a double edge sword. On one hand, the stress of school is over and with that comes a welcome opportunity to exhale.
On the other hand, the structurelessness of summer can also mean that the kids are home, bored, and looking for entertainment (often too much video game time).
