Punish Fairly, Don't Overdo It
DO: Impose appropriate punishment.
The punishment should fit the crime. The consequence for spilling milk might be that your child cleans up the mess, and then pours another glass and sets it in a safer place on the table. No reason to blame or yell at her, or even withhold food.
DON’T: Go overboard with the punishment.
In most cases, harsh punishments, like spanking, encourage ADHD children to become sneaky so as not to get caught next time. They may even cause your child to doubt your love for her — something you want to avoid at all costs.
