Telling your kids about Memory Protocol Ebook ADHD can be a challenge. My eldest son said to me the other day; "Now did you say I have ADHD or did you say I have an HDTV?"My eleven year old was kidding. He thinks that the alphabet soup of acronyms in our language is extremely funny. He does understand the disease but there is plenty of room for confusion when you are explaining complex brain phenomena to younger kids.
Some people ask me how much I think my kids need to know about ADHD and my response is; " They need to know a lot". The reason I feel this way is simple. Sooner, rather than later, they will be managing their own brains. The earlier they gain experience in how their unique minds function, the better armed they will be to recognize and use the interventions that may help them.
We all come into this world with different bodies and different brains. Diabetics need more insulin in order to digest food to fuel their bodies because an organ called the pancreas does not make enough. People with ADHD need more Neurotransmitters in their brain in order to pay attention, control their impulses, and for staying still, because their brains do not make enough.
