On today’s episode I talk to a psychologist about a controversial topic, which is ADHD in children. Let’s be honest, I love talking about controversial topics here. We talk about the symptoms of ADHD and quite frankly I think most children at some point in their childhood could meet the criteria. Whether or not a child is diagnosed, Ashlee and I agree that providing children with skills and strategies to learn is more effective than any medication.
