Manage Your ADD/ADHD Middle Schooler's Medication

Have your child share responsibility for his taking medication. You put it out at breakfast; it’s his responsibility to take it. Remind him if he forgets.

Empathize with your child. Many middle-schoolers are embarrassed about taking meds, especially if they have to visit the school nurse to get a daily dose. Ask your child’s doctor about medications that last through the day.
