It's finally summer, even though the weather may not always feel like it for me here in Langley. While summer is exciting at first, it can get boring. While school is out, sometimes it's hard to know what to do with all my time. I think the worst mistake ADHD Kids can make is letting themselves get bored, unmotivated and depressed...Read More
Most kids struggle to save money. It's hard for us to see the big picture and how saving now will be worth it when we get older.
