Having more than one kiddo in the house presents its own parenting challenges, and that’s even more the case when one or more family members has ADHD. Very often, siblings get left out, left behind, more attention, you name it! Underlying those surface concerns are family dynamics that can feel like constant conflict, resentment, or even manipulation. Jane Indergaard and Jeremy Didier share their professional and personal experiences raising (and being) siblings when ADHD is involved. They share how to navigate and manage conflict, how to talk to neurotypical kids about their siblings, and even how to handle it when the fireworks start!
