Many parents of children with ADHD also feel an immense pressure to prove themselves. “Society looks at you and thinks what the hell is going on with these people?” says Charlie’s mother, Marsha Greenberg, 52. “And you say to yourself, ‘Oh my god, I am a terrible parent.’ And you think ‘It’s my fault; it’s all my fault. I should be able to control him.’ ” But on Charlie’s worst days, says Greenberg, he’s wild and obstinate. “You can’t calm him down or reason with him. He can’t hear you. There’s just too much going on in his brain, and he’s rocketing to the sky.”
