The Gift of ADHD: How to Transform Your Child's Problems Into Strengthsby Lara Honos Webb
Synopses & Reviews
As a parent, you already know that your child has many gifts. What you may not know is that attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) related symptoms—the very qualities that lead him or her to act out and distract others—may be among them.
This second edition of The Gift of ADHD includes compelling new research indicating that the impulses that lead your child to act exuberantly may correspond with unusual levels of creativity and a heightened capacity for insight into the feelings and emotions of others. Could it be that ADHD is not a hindrance, but an asset in our fast-paced digital age?
ADHD expert Lara Honos-Webb presents the evidence for this revolutionary concept and explains how you can help your child develop control over inattentive, hyperactive behavior and enhance the five gifts of ADHD: creativity, attunement to nature, interpersonal intuition, energetic enthusiasm, and emotional sensitivity. Filled with easy skill-building activities you and your child can do together, this book will help your child transform problematic symptoms into strengths, then build the self-esteem they need to let those gifts shine.
In the second edition of The Gift of ADHD, Lara Honos-Webb offers strategies for shifting parents' understanding of their child's attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to focus on the positive traits of this diagnosis. The book also provides step-by-step cognitive behavioral exercises for helping children function effectively and improving the parent-child relationship.
