My new husband can't deal with my son not being able to follow simple directions or listen at school and at home. My husband tells me that my son is doing all of this on purpose because I don't discipline him enough. How do I make my husband understand that yelling and punishing a child with LD and ADHD only make the situation worse?
You might also want to contact your local branches of the Learning Disabilities Association (1-800-300-6710, http://www.ldanatl.org) or the International Dyslexia Association (1-800-ABCD123, http://www.interdys.org) to see when they have scheduled meetings for parents. It would be good for your husband to hear from other parents who are experiencing the same frustrations that he is.
