Your daughter's ADHD should never hold her back: discover how you can use your own parenting power to feed her inner strength.
Did you know that Emma Watson was diagnosed with inattentive ADHD while she was filming for Harry Potter?
Idolized as Hermione by children and respected by teens for her activism and advocacy, Emma Watson is an inspiration to girls of all ages… and everything she’s achieved, she’s managed alongside her ADHD.
She’s the perfect role model for girls with ADHD -- a group who often find themselves marginalized and misunderstood. And if you’re a parent to one of these girls, the chances are, you face many struggles you never expected to face as a parent.
How many times have you looked for help, only to find that resources are targeting externalized symptoms like hyperactivity and acting out?
But your daughter’s ADHD manifests differently. Her symptoms are more internalized. Perhaps she’s anxious and withdrawn, she has trouble focusing, or she appears not to be listening.
All too often, these girls are overlooked.
So how can you help them fit into a world that seems to not be designed for them?
The answer starts with yourself: through arming yourself with knowledge about ADHD in girls, you can help your daughter navigate the world and let her brightest qualities shine.
Because all those quirks her ADHD gives her can be advantages if she’s guided and taught to harness their power.
It’s not about forcing her to fit into a neurotypical mold: it’s about teaching her how to use her strengths and skills to find her own place within the world.
By strengthening your own understanding of how ADHD affects your daughter through each stage of development, you can fortify her with the skills she needs to be a brilliant and inspirational young woman.
