[25:00] How ADHD becomes their superpower
“When I’m working with families with children under the age of 12, we have a conversation about that. And it makes a huge difference for them to understand that if their child is not doing what they want them to, it’s not because they don’t want to. It’s because they can’t do it.”
“I’ve now been an ADHD life coach for 20 years and have opened my own training program for coaches, usually parents who have children with ADHD, and it still amazes me 20 years later, how much is misunderstood and the lack of awareness.”
“When parents go through the struggles and then they come out at the back end with all this information, they’ve just got this passion to be able to share it with others.”
“I’m a natural learner. I always look for, as you said, the why underneath the behavior.”
“Kids are pre-programmed to try and please adults. It’s to their benefit to be able to do that.”
“I want them to be happy and to be able to take care of themselves and to have good relationships, even though the issues that a parent might call with are very different.”
“One thing to know about kids with ADHD…when they’re either angry or they can anger somebody else or frustrate somebody else, it actually is like getting a natural dopamine hit for them.”
