Be Present, Be Tough
Spend unstructured time together. Just 15 minutes a day with your child lays the groundwork for a strong bond with your ADHD child. The closer you are, the easier positive reinforcement of good behaviors will be in the future.
Let your children know who's boss. Explain to your ADHD child that playing video games and watching TV are privileges you’ve given her, not her right. Child psychologist Douglas Riley says, "Kids need to know that access to the phone, TV, and computer have to be earned by showing positive behavior and a good attitude."
