‘When we truly understand that children don’t see the world in the same way as adults, and we teach them how to keep their brains happy and healthy, we understand that this is really the most important parenting tool we will ever need.’
Children radiate beautiful colours in their own brilliant ways, and this book will inspire you to see them for who they are!
Love ME, Love my ADHD encourages families, educators, and, most importantly, children to understand this complex, but totally loveable neurotype and how it shows up in everyday life.
Written by child behaviour expert Chrissie Davies and illustrated by Trish Burton, this is a book with a very important message. Being an ADHD'er comes with so many strengths and amazing qualities, and author Chrissie Davies should know. She deeply loves two gorgeous, curious and adventurous ADHD wildings. She also identifies as neurodivergent herself – and is inspiring families everywhere to embrace their ADHD-ness with radical acceptance and positivity.
"I want the world to understand that our ADHD children are not problems that need fixing. Their brains are uniquely wired, meaning they see things through a unique lens. This is probably why they’re always hanging upside down, or spinning, rolling, moving, and grooving with such fabulous gusto.
Kids with ADHD have so much to say, and they’re so incredibly curious about the world they live in. With unique ways of getting things done, ADHD'ers are SO much more than the behaviours we see on the surface. Dig a little deeper, and you will find loving, kind, clever kids longing to be loved for who they are, not who the world expects them to be.
When we understand how these brains process information, we can harness their strengths and interests and provide them with the right supports.
We can learn to EMBRACE the amazing colours they radiate and help them shine bright like beautiful rainbows."
This book is for families, grandparents, aunts, uncles, carers, therapists, educators, and, MOST importantly, our gorgeous little ADHD humans. Our kids absolutely deserve to be surrounded by those who are neuro affirming, informed, accepting and adore them unconditionally!
"Because if you Love ME, you have to learn to love my ADHD and that is when I will truly thrive!"
