Sitting still, waiting patiently and thinking things through are tough tasks for many kids. But for kids with self-control issues, weaknesses in those areas can make it hard to learn and make friends.
The Understood team is composed of passionate writers, editors and community moderators, many of whom have children with learning and attention issues.
