Activities

Encourage your ADHD children to try every sport, hobby, and after-school activity they can. Childhood is a time to explore and find out what you like, what you love, and what you can leave aside. The more activities you find that you like, the greater your chances of being happy all your life.

The Past

Cultivate a connection to the past through stories told by grandparents, stories you tell of your own childhood, stories of your ancestors and family traditions, as well as of family struggles, triumphs, and hopes.

Nature and Special Places

Kids naturally connect to nature. Special places — such as tree houses and swimming holes — are part of the folklore of childhood.
