Groups, Teams, Clubs, Institutions

Groups instill a sense of responsibility in ADHD children, as well as an introduction to the power and joy of team effort.

The Spiritual Realm

Make sure there is some kind of spiritual connection in the life of your child. This does not require allegiance to an organized religion, just a forum for wondering about the ultimate questions. Kids need a place and time to do this. They are natural wonderers. Encourage their spiritual wondering.
