What might it mean that a child can’t create a birthday list?
Our daughter is going to be 13 soon, and we have been asking her for a while to list some things she would like for her birthday. She hasn’t been a bel to do this, and today when we asked her about this, she says she simply has nothing she can think of.
This certainly isn’t because she has everything, I think she has difficulty imagining potential futures vs reacting to choices that are right in front of her. We would like to work on that if so.
She has a diagnosis for ADHD, but we are wondering if this kind of behavior might indicate something else is going on.
Has anyone else had this kind of experience and have some insights to share?
