Chodesh Tov! Wishing you all a wonderful and joyful new month, on today, the first day of the Jewish month of Adar. And Rosh Chodesh also means another installment in Eydl Reznik's excellent parenting series, right here, since creativity and parenting go hand in hand.
This month's lesson is an invaluable wake up call to all parents whose children have been diagnosed with ADHD. As it turns out, the ADHD diagnosis is often given to children who have a different problem altogether. The good news however, is that your child's problem may be something that can be resolved, given a proper assessment and diagnosis. So I'd say don't walk, run to read this month's lesson— you may be able to help a precious child, yours or someone else's, start living life to its fullest, and without the quite possibly incorrect label ADHD.
