Many parents say ADHD lets a lot of kids off the hook for their bad behavior. Others say life is new since the diagnosis. I’m not here to tell you whether or not an ADHD diagnosis is right or wrong. I do know I have two kids who were diagnosed with it. Even though we have special kiddos, it doesn’t mean we excuse their bad behavior. The reality is ADHD or no ADHD, we’re all sinful. The important thing to remind our kids is that when we’re in Christ, all sins are forgiven. We all need salvation through Christ alone. As parents, we need to be honest about our sin. There aren’t any excuses for it, but there is forgiveness for it. Isn’t that good news?
