[Take This Test: Could Your Child Have Hyperactive Impulsive ADHD?]I am that mother walking into the birthday party with my kid. I see the eye rolls and hear the whispers, and so does my kid.

I am the mother who has had no one show up to her kid’s party… and it is heartbreaking for both of us. I also understand the other kids’ and parents’ frustrations.
