ADHD Parent Training - connecting with your child with ADHD

With my eldest daughter, Eva, and I it wasn't always plain sailing. In the beginning, before she was diagnosed it was testing to say the least, just getting her to focus was hard. We didn't know what was going on with her. Back then we had no idea about ADHD and we certainly did not suspect that the whole family was somewhere on the ADHD spectrum! What a long way we have come together as a family since she was diagnosed over 7 years ago now. I feel so grateful to have stepped on to this path to greater understanding, to knowing what feels right, feeling confident in our parenting style and learning what patience and knowledge of ADHD can do to improve our dynamic. Eva has been a great inspiration in this process. She has taught me so much. I want to share with you our video where we are discussing the journey. Grab yourself a well deserved hot drink and have a watch. I guarantee you'll feel nourished (and that's not because I'm her mum - my assistant pushed me to share this with you all).

Shine Bright, Lyrics by Eva Camilleri


I know sometimes it's hard

To pass the forest of scars

Know that I’ve got your back

Don't feel like you're being chased case you're not


Believe me I know what you're going through

I see you, I see you


I won't give up

On you I won't give up

On me too

We will be strong together

We'll find our way

I won't give up

On us


It's ok to be different from the rest

Be brave no matter what the test


Believe me I know what you're going through

I see you, I see you


I won't give up

On you I won't give up

On me too

We will be strong together

We'll find our way

I won't give up


On us Oo oo, Ah ah …

We can do anything

We put our minds to

I won't give up

On us
