#GCSE results are in.
Mine have done well but not as well as they hoped.
4s, 5s & 6s for Will and 6s, 7s & 8s for Becca.
Seeing others in tears is sad. But life will go on. We are not defined by our results!

It's #GCSE result day tomorrow and I'm nervous excited for my #ADHD #Twins.

I spent the day at Ikea today with Becca buying bits for her bedroom. She said it did her good to not think about her results as her friends are all freaking out on social media. We have a ’Tropics’ business starting in September so that she can earn while studying. All is good.

Will is so much more laid back and taking it all in his stride. He is struggling to sleep even more than normal though. He starts his job at McD’s tomorrow.

Both are looking to do A-Levels so a lot hangs on this. But I remind myself that that it is not now or never and their worth is not measured by exam results. They are good, kind, bright and ethical young people regardless of what tomorrow brings and I'm so proud of them.

Inspired by the attached blog by Grace Under Pressure, Sarah Forbes.

My Will (16 #ADHD) has been great in many respects this summer but getting him to sort his room is tough!

I showed him this and at first he was cross and said I should have just asked him to do it. I laughed and said ’yeah right’ because I am always asking. I sealed up the rest of the bag and said he could have the rest as long as he didn't cheat on this list.

He then started telling me that he could get at least 6 skittles already because he has made is bed and has almost no crockery in his room. 🤣🤣 The lies he tells himself! Anyway, I can hear him doing things in his room so 🤞!

Good morning #parents and #carers.
How are you doing?

If you haven't already, please book your children in for an eye test.
There is a significant correlation between vision difficulties and #ADHD. One does not necessarily cause the other, it's just that they potentially share generic and environmental risk factors.

Promoting positive outcomes

Jannine Harris MA PGCE is a teacher, trainer, parent, academic and consultant specialising in ADHD.

Jannine was diagnosed with ADHD herself four years ago following the diagnosis of two of her three children. Jannine is brutally honest and open in her delivery of the theory and practice of ADHD. She uses her own life and professional experiences to talk you through what works and what doesn't - and she can tell you why you don't always get the outcomes you were expecting. You can ask her questions along the way, and she'll answer in a raw, real and respectful way. Jannine will talk about why things go wrong and how they can be turned around. She isn't idealistic and doesn't make any false promises. ADHD is hard to live with! Jannine is an example what thriving with ADHD can look like. Her 25-year-old daughter, who has Asperger's and ADHD, is her sidekick. The two of them will leave you in no doubt of what is possible and how you might achieve this for yourself, your child, spouse, or the people you support. Jannine has featured in articles in The Guardian, Society for Education and Training (SET) and ADHD Action. She will be speaking at the upcoming national conference run by the ADHD Foundation on the social and economic impact of ADHD . She is an MSc Psychology student with the University of Liverpool; a member of the Association of Child and Adolescent Mental Health (ACAMH); Society for Education and Training (SET) and holds a student membership of the British Psychology Association (BPS). She runs the Facebook page @ADHDWiseUK which has over 13,000 followers
