Parenting Your ADHD Child: Biblical Guidance for Your Child's Diagnosis
About: Parenting Your ADHD Child.
If your child is diagnosed with ADHD, don't give up hope! No diagnosis can negate the fact that your child is made in the image of God. You can help your child, as one of God's image bearers, to deal with the behaviors associated with ADHD. The Bible offers you and your child much wisdom, comfort, and hope as you face this struggle together.
Rita K. Jamison walks parents through 18 behavioral characteristics related to ADHD, showing them how to apply Scripture to each type of behavior. As you teach your child to examine their heart before the Lord instead of immediately reacting to their impulses, you will help them experience the faith-building satisfaction of real change.
