It occurred to me that I mostly write about the struggles and challenges my daughter with ADHD faces and that is just not fair. I think parents of ADHDers can all agree that while having ADHD can make life more difficult and stressful for both our children and ourselves at times, it also provides our children with a lot of amazing qualities. These qualities are going to allow our children to go far in life and become very successful. Many people with ADHD grow up to be entrepreneurs, inventors, and trend-setters.

Use Code: GALS10 to get 10% off until 2/7/16 My six year old daughter was diagnosed with ADHD last year.

The positive feedback I received from the public is astounding and I want to thank each and every one of you for your support. When I tell people that my daughter has ADHD, they automatically assume she is constantly running around nonstop like the Energizer Bunny and a nightmare for...

People have a wonderful way of identifying to music and relating the lyrics to their own lives. When I was younger and boy-crazy, it was all about love songs for me. Now that I’m a mother, I find myself identifying with songs in many different ways. When I first heard Rachel Platten’s “Stand By You,” I immediately thought of my six year old daughter who has ADHD. In fact, I identified with the song so strongly that it brought me to tears. I felt like the song described my feelings, thoughts, and emotions as her...
