Comply Or Defy, ADHD Reaction To Routine And Structure
By Kelly Babcock, author of the blog, "ADHD Man of DistrAction" on PsychCentral
I’ve written about routine and structure before. I’ve blatantly stated: “Structure good, routine bad!”
And I’ve explained it. Structure allows some freedom within it’s confines, providing more of a guide to life. Routine allows no freedoms, providing instead a regimen that allows no room for creativity or variety.
But even structure can be somewhat stultifying. If structure provides a guide, for instance, to let you know what needs to be done, once you start taking care of those things you perceive a schedule or routine.
