Parenting is hard, parenting with ADHD even more so. Add distracting technology and limiting screen time seems impossible. We know, we’ve been there.
Screen time self-control depends on the brain’s executive function – and ADHD undermines executive function.
That’s why kids with ADHD find it harder to avoid excessive gaming, social media and other digital distractions. As a result, ADHD turns typical screen time issues into BIG ISSUES and parents often feel trapped in a loop of nagging, threats and telling their kids off.
