When I began writing a book for parents and children with ADHD, the words Motivate and Thrive kept popping up in my sentences. Important words alone, but when put together, the phrase Motivate to Thrive aptly captures the passion of my career and the intent of my book.
Many times, children with ADHD have difficulty sustaining interest in activities that are not interesting or fun for them. This may make it difficult for children to learn new skills and express their creativity. It becomes critical to motivate children to want to learn and stay focused during homework or new learning.
Children thrive when they develop an important skills or able to express a unique talent or interest. The positive words, pictures and organizational strategies in my book, Motivate, will help children to thrive by helping them organize their thoughts and behavior.
The purpose of my book is rooted firmly in research-based tools to help families create a happy and organized home for their child with ADHD. The book’s beautiful charts and charming pictures help children step through daily routines with ease while learning ways to organize and focus.
Overtime, this blog will unpack some of the themes in the book’s toolkit – starting next week with an exploration of the value of raising empathetic children.
