Posted on Feb 13 2017 - 10:07pm by My Little Villagers

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I decided to do my part to spread some ADHD love by asking parents of children with ADHD what they loved about them.  I posted my question on My Little Villager’s Facebook page and within minutes, parents began gushing about their amazing children and how proud they are to be their parents.  (I posted some of the parents’ responses below, but there were many, many more.  To read all of the parents’ wonderful words spoken about their children, please click here.

Parents and caregivers of children with ADHD know how difficult and frustrating it can be to raise them.  Every day, we are asking ADHD support groups for advice, researching ways to help our child, and worrying endlessly about our child’s future and if we are making the right decisions. Life is hectic and overwhelming for us and unfortunately, that is why you will hardly ever hear a parent or caregiver bragging about their child with ADHD, which is an absolute shame.  These children are extraordinary, gifted, and absolutely amazing individuals who should and need to be raved about! Let’s celebrate their uniqueness, their spiritedness, their enthusiasm!  This Valentine’s Day and every day, let’s tell the world why we love our children so much and why the world should love them too!  Without further ado, here is what parents had to say when asked what they love about their children with ADHD:
