Follow Through On Your Actions
It isn’t easy for parents with ADD/ADHD to remain disciplined enough to punish a child for not obeying a rule. Make this a priority. If you told your daughter she must be home by 10 or she will lose her car privileges, and she comes home at 11, don’t get angry. Take away her car privileges. This may be inconvenient -- you may have to drive her to her tutoring sessions -- but do it anyway. If you don’t, your daughter will miss out on learning to equate her actions with consequences and on seeing that a person with ADD/ADHD can demonstrate responsible behavior.
