WHY ADHD KIDS SAY I DON’T KNOW SO OFTEN

Here’s what “I don’t know” really means:

  • I can’t help you. I don’t seem to be able to make myself do what I want to do.

  • Please don’t be mad.

  • I can’t take more nagging.

  • Do we have to keep having the same conversation? That won’t change me.

  • You can keep asking but I don’t have a different answer.

  • I feel like a loser and I’m trying to cover it up.

  • I don’t want to say the wrong thing.

  • I’m embarrassed by being a failure.

  • If I could answer to your satisfaction, I would.

  • My mind is (actually) blank.

This is why ADHD kids say “I don’t know” so often.
