I am new to here and to ADD parenting. My 18 year old son was diagnosed with ADD a few weeks prior to starting college. To make this short, we are still changeing and adjusting his medications. He has had, and still does have, sleeping issues. He is difficult to awaken. He misses classes and appointments. He has failed all of his classes first semester. He wants to stay in college and try to make it work. His father and i are divorced, and he doesn't really support or help with the ADD. My son and I seem to butt heads alot lately, and when I try and talk to him and help him, he tells me I am intruding. I don't want to sit back and let him fail out, but yet I want to respect his personal space. I am overwhelmed and at a lose for direction. I feel very alone in my battle and frustrated. I need some advice and wisdom from people who understand what we are going through.
