Tweak the Treatment Plan
Managing your child's symptoms is good for him—and your marriage. "When your child's behavior improves, thanks to medication or parenting strategies, the stress on your marriage will lessen," says Wymbs. Monitor your child's treatments to make sure he's getting the help he needs, and look to make adjustments if his behavior starts to slide.
In working with doctors, remember that they call it a "practice" for a reason; your child's doctor isn't around him 24/7. You and your spouse are, so you know what's working—and what isn't. Regularly discuss the treatment plan, and look for opportunities to make improvements.
