Raising a child with ADHD is challenging because ADHD symptoms are linked to dysfunctional behaviors (e.g. non-compliance to a parent’s instructions, distractibility that prevents task completion) yielding high levels of friction for family life (Gupta et al, 2007). Some aspects of this tension can be conceptualized as parenting stress, which has been defined as the demands, consequences, responsibilities, and difficulties related to caring for a child with special needs (Brannan et al, 1997). In general, stress has been defined as “an external load or demand on a biological, social, or psychological system” (Lazarus et al, 1993). In order to achieve homeostasis, people utilize coping mechanisms to either change the stressor or the interpretation of the stressful situation. Parenting stress can motivate parents to use various resources to support their parenting (Mash et al, 1990). Without proper coping resources, the stress of raising a child with ADHD can cause strain on the parent’s mental health. Identifying candidate moderators that exacerbate or diminish parenting stress and strain, in order to improve psycho educational and other treatment interventions to favor family well-being and reduce parental distress, is potentially beneficial for both parents and their offspring.
