The Most Important Routine to Follow Through With?

Most of all, remind yourself and others that we all have strengths. All children are better off if their parents, siblings, relatives, and teachers demonstrate confidence in their abilities. And for a child with ADD/ADHD, this is essential to a good start in life.

Everyone around your child is sending him messages. As long as these are based on an understanding of ADD/ADHD, they'll tell your child to find joy in his accomplishments and grow with a strong sense of self.
