    Default Homeschooling & ADHD

    My toddler (2) is showing signs of ADHD which is worrying me about homeschooling him. His father and both of his older sisters have ADHD and school is a struggle for the girls. Some days I'm so sure that homeschooling my LO is going to be for the best, but other days I get very worried that I wont be able to teach him adequately. Do any other parents out there homeschool kiddos with ADD or ADHD or other behavioral issues?
    Can I compost this?

    I've got ADD and my daughter has ADD. With homeschooling, you can take breaks as needed, go at your own pace, etc. I would think public school would be much more difficult for a child with behavioral issues, etc. They like to keep the train moving on schedule down to the nano-second.
    Your personal homeschool will morph into what you need it to be. Kids are sponges and absorb so much information anyway, if you put forth the effort, they will learn.
    You can always check into meds (when deemed old enough by a doctor--he's pretty young) if need be. I tried for years to not medicate my child (not for ADD), but in the end, its been for the best.
