I have included below a link to Parenting.com, where you can find a list of celebrities who live with ADHD each day.

Your children may or may not know all of these names and that’s ok. Go through the list with them and google the names of those they don’t recognize. Help them learn more about the successes others with ADHD have found. It could be a great conversation starter. 🙂

It’s always a good idea for anyone living with ADHD to have a little something like this in their back pocket. That way, the next time that really annoying mom from the school association starts to brag about how perfect her children are (yeah, sure they are) and how she “feels” for your son or daughter because they must find grade 6 so hard, with ADHD and all, you’ll be ready for her. Stand up for yourself and your child and put her in her place with a few of the more famous ADHD success stories. 🙂 Good luck!
