Focusing on ADHD Strengths: Building Entrepreneurs

Does your son or daughter have an entrepreneurial spirit?  Do they set up lemonade stands?  Do they sell cookies or popcorn?  Are they interested in solving problems?  Many kids with ADHD or ADD have an entrepreneurial spirit and keen interest in making money because it’s naturally one of their strengths.  I believe parents should focus on their child’s strengths because your child’s strengths will carry him or her through in life.  Are you building your child’s strengths or mostly shoring up his or her weaker areas?

This TED video by Cameron Herold is another great example of how a child with ADHD used his strengths to start multiple companies.  By society’s standards he is a huge success.  What are you doing to nurture your child’s strengths?
