ADHD: Speaking into the Narrative of our Children’s Lives | The Inclusive Church

How do you handle the multitude of parents that say their child has ADHD?

Do we instictively think of this as a bad thing?

Or, do we see it this way?

Our children’s narrative is a life long sculpting by them and God, and yet we, as parents are called to play a critical role as collaborators in that story.  He chose to put this child in our lives. As we are awed and overjoyed, exhausted and impatient, humbled and overwhelmed, God comes along side and reminds us in little and big ways, that we are helping to shape our child’s story.

A great article from MinistryGrid. I really enjoyed the reflection questions and plan to use them with my #kidmin leaders.

We refer to this tool as “checking your RPM’S.”  This tool is based on Luke 2:52 that says, “Jesus grew in wisdom (mental) and stature (physical), and in favor with God (spiritual) and men (relational).”  So for the last couple years on a daily basis I have put at the top of my journal these four letters: R (relational), P (physical), M (mental) and S (spiritual) and given myself a 1-10 rating.
