my twice exceptional DD1 (ADHD and gifted) loves audiobooks. We go to the library every couple of weeks and get 20 of them (maximum allowed) and mostly ones that play over a couple of hours.
DD1 loooves listening to them. Her verbal abilities are especially gifted. Now my question: How much is too much? At the moment if I don't stop her she would be listening for three - four hours a day. Coloring while she doing it or playing with little things or lying on her bed.
That is so very unlike her that it is frightening me sometimes. On the other hand, I do feel a bit stupid complaining about my bubbly one, cause she is quietly sitting in her room, kwm?
At the moment I do stop her after a hour. But sometimes I feel stupid doing so. Her psychologist says she needs it to wind down, and I appreciate that, Ijust feel that she is so "away" while doing it.
How much is too much?
By the way. She does not read fluently yet, due to her visual problems, but we do practice every day.
