It’s a Myth! ADHD Kids DO Have the Power to Focus

How does Lily occupy herself while Zoolander is growing mold?  Like many ADHD kids who are deemed ‘inattentive’, Lily can super-duper focus when it’s on a project she’s come up with herself.

Last weekend?  It was crafting a horse bridle from twine and a rubber band, and then, of course, sewing a saddle blanket for the lucky horse.

This weekend?  

Saturday–Sorting and polishing coins… for hours!

Sunday–Making her own animated movie for her Greek project at school.  These XtraNormal movies are so much fun!  Her movie tells the story of Hades kidnapping Persephone and dragging her to the Underworld to be his wife. Hades happens to be wearing some sort of Viking getup in Lily’s version, which adds a certain timeless appeal to the story.
