More on Self Esteem and Your ADHD Child
Many parents struggle with children that have ADHD and poor self esteem. Some parents seek out professional help such as counseling. If you would like to try some exercises at home with your child though, read my latest blog.
Children (and adults!) with ADHD often have special talents:great imaginations, different ways of looking at things.Ask your child if he or she has a special talent no one appreciates, then ask them to list ways they can get attention for these talents.
Have your child list 10 things that make them special. If they can't think of 10, have them ask you or a teacher for things they feel make them special.

List some of these people with your child and ask them to look them up. Find out about what life was like for these people before diagnosis and how they succeeded.
