Why should I develop my emotional intelligence if my child has ADHD?

The most powerful way to give your child with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) the gift of emotional intelligence is to get it yourself. If you find yourself struggling with issues of emotional intelligence, you would serve both you and your child by working to develop this strength. You would benefit by seeking therapy or a support group. The personal work you do can trickle down to later generations, providing healing for those who come after you. Many crippling symptoms can be traced to unexpressed emotions. For instance, chronic health problems have been linked to the inability to express emotions. The ability to feel and express positive emotions is widely regarded as the fulfillment of the purpose of life. The emotional development and personal growth of you and your child is no small thing. It is the essential thing.
