Passionate Instigator, Dynamic Problem Solver
In this book parents are given insights, tools and skills to help empower the ADD/HD child in their life. The reader takes this journey through first understanding, then parenting, teaching, guiding, and supporting, learning how to embrace their child’s gifts and talents on their terms. This can be accomplished without having to sacrifice brilliance, creativity or unique ways of seeing or being in the world through the overuse of medication or medication or behavior modification techniques that destroy their self-worth and self-esteem.
The A.D.D. impacted person is part of the evolutionary process of humanity. It is time to acknowledge that these people have many gifts and insights that can help us move more clearly into the 21st century. They possess a kind of intelligence that allows them to go where we have never gone before.
What is our reaction? We complain that they are inconvenient – that they do not “fit in the box.” We often decide that the best option is to medicate and try to forget them. Well, change is long overdue… and many of our institutions and paradigms will need to shift in the process. That, too, is long overdue.
Managing The Gift provides an opportunity to truly understand this thing we call A.D.D. and how to utilize the gifts that accompany it.
