It is important to control their own emotions to make the right decisions. But there are some people who have struggled with it because of ADHD。 And need some support from their positive relationships for making the right decisions. People with ADHD are struggling with their concentrate skills, which is a person like Percy who is having struggles with ADHD. This piece of writing can give you the reasoning why positive relationships are important and at the same time, how do symptoms of ADHD give affect the Person’s choices with Percy’s experience.
What effect does a Positive relationship give to make the right decisions?
We can find that Positive relationships give effect to Percy’s choices when we see Pg. 3: “I’m going to kill her,” I mumbled. Grover tried to calm me down. “It’s okay, I like peanut butter.”
Also, on Pg. 29: “Her name is Sally Jackson, and she’s the best person in the world.” Continuing the quote on Pg. 29, On Pg. 32~33: “My mom is the nicest lady in the world. She should’ve been married to a millionaire, not to some jerk like Gabe. “My mother can make me feel good just by walking into the room” / “I was really glad to see her.”
At this point, we can find that a Positive relationship helps the person to calm down. According to the Article ‘Why personal relationships are important’, ‘Healthy relationships are a vital component of health and well-being. There is compelling evidence that strong relationships contribute to a long, healthy, and happy life. Conversely, the health risks from being alone or isolated in one’s life are comparable to the risks associated with cigarette smoking, blood pressure, and obesity.’
The reason the Positive relationship gives effect to Percy’s choices is that, for example on the pg. 3, Percy mumbled “I am going to kill her”, and Grover, which has a positive relationship with Percy, tried to calm down him. So, if Grover did not try to calm Percy down, Percy would have chosen to kill Nancy, a bad choice. So, the supporting offended by a caring friend (positive relationship) is important.
Linking the positive relationships to the topic, Positive relationships are impacting a large part of making good choices. People beside Percy help him to make good choices.
What effect does ADHD give to make the right decisions?
ADHD also gives effect to Percy’s choices. When we see page 5, ‘Nancy snickered something about a naked guy on the stele, and I turned around and said, “Will you shut up?”’. Also, on Pg. 17, When our English teacher, Mr. Nicoll, asked me for the millionth time why I was too lazy to study for spelling tests, I snapped. I called him an old sot I wasn’t even sure what it meant but it sounded good.
According to the article about ADHD named ‘Neurodiversity: A different view of ADHD’, ‘For some students, it is a challenge to pay attention in school. They try their best to focus, but they get easily distracted.’ ‘The doctor will also look for hyperactivity symptoms. Hyperactivity means being overly active. These symptoms include fidgeting, difficulty playing quietly, or waiting for a turn, and blurting out answers in class.
To make a connection with the article and Percy’s movement choices, for example, the quote on pg. 5, ‘Nancy snickered something about a naked guy on the stele, and said, “will you shut up?” It came out louder than I meant it to. The whole group laughed. Mr. Brunner stopped his story.’ We can know that Percy has blurted out during the class. And when Percy was getting detention with his English teacher, Percy was not paying attention to what his English teacher was speaking. He was thinking about the funny name for his English teacher. It means Percy is not interested in what his English teacher said and doing other things such as making funny nicknames. Relating to the article, Percy is having struggles with paying attention and easily distracted.
Linking ADHD to the topic, usually, someone has ADHD is very impulsive, that they shout out (blurting out) in the class, and hard to wait. And this affected Percy to blurt out something that makes other people hurt, without thinking.
So, does Percy has to live his whole life with ADHD? The answer is no. According to the article called ‘Neurodiversity: A different view of ADHD’, ‘ADHD is sometimes treated with medicine. Certain medications adjust the amounts of different chemicals in the brain. This can help improve focus and behavior. For some kids, these medicines can cause unwanted side effects.
Another treatment is behavioral therapy. In this kind of therapy, children and teens practice new ways to react when they feel distracted or fidgety.’ According to the article, Percy could improve his behavior when the teacher supports him. When we see the article, it says ‘People with ADHD also do their best in stimulating environments. They like to be outdoors and move their bodies.’ So, if Percy gets support from his teacher by doing lots of outdoor activities and making his interest in other subjects except for Ancient Greek, and also Latin, he could try his best and makes the highest grade in his life.
To control their own emotions are important for making the right decisions. But some people cannot do that. Lots of teenagers are struggling with ADHD and controlling their emotions. So, if there are some people struggling with ADHD, to have a positive relationship with them. It will help a lot for them to make the right decisions.
