Can ADHD be a good thing?

Sure, for kids, a lot of times, we see the hyperactivity aspect help them in sports or athletics. They’re moving around, they are active, sometimes they are very social and sometimes it actually helps them interact with their peers. For adults, a lot of times it helps them with creativity, they think outside the box and they do things that are very creative compared to people without ADHD. Also, multi-tasking, if they’ve taught themselves how to do it because they have had a hard time focusing on one thing, they kind of weave in and out of a bunch of things, they’ll work on this thing for a bit and then move on and circle back. As long as they have taught themselves to stay productive, they can do really well dealing with a whole bunch of tasks at once.

My son likes to build things outside so my husband has given him his own hammer and nails and scrap wood and he is out for hours with his brother and friends building their fort. Endless productive fun!!!
