Remain Positive

Compliment good behavior. Remind your child of his strengths, and praise your ADHD child when you "catch him being good" (completing homework, picking up toys, and so on). If your negative comments outweigh the positive, it's time for a change. After all, ADD kids hear enough negative comments outside the home.

Eliminate negative self-talk. If you complain about your own ADD, your children will pick this up and apply it to themselves. Stop your negativity, and focus on your positive aspects.

Find what works for you. You don’t have to parent by the book. Use a system that works best for your family.
