If you have a young child with ADHD (particularly a little girl), a great way to explain ADHD to them is to relate it to Elsa’s powers from Frozen. In case you’ve been living under a rock the past three years, Elsa is a queen who was born with ice powers. As a child, Elsa had a difficult time keeping her powers under control.
