ADHD, unlike what people say today, is a true gift that the beholder has and cares for. You want your child to understand ADHD?
1. Sit down with them. Tell your child that she/he has ADHD, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Tell them it is a disorder that makes them feel: anxious, hyperactive, unable to do simple tasks and etc.
2. Go on the Internet with your child and tell them this what their brain looks like.
3. Tell your child that she/he has nothing wrong with them at all and that they shouldn't feel bad if they have ADHD as it is a gift and that they are lucky to have so.
4. If they feel bad about having ADHD, treat them out. Take them to the amusement park, the mall, the roller rink or any place that they like that will make them feel much better about themselves.
Show your child famous people who have ADHD, like: Jim Carrey, Robin Williams, Edgar Allan Poe, Einstein, Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson.Tell your child that you love them and that nothing in the whole world can change that.
