3. PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT YOUR CHILD DOES.
Put at the top of your to-do list, "Observe my children."
Appreciate them for the imaginative beings that they are. This isn’t the time to monitor or correct, it’s the time to be like Jane Goodall in the jungle and interact only when invited or when necessary for safety’s sake.
When you regularly watch your ADHD child, instead of trying to fix him, you understand how he sees and feels the world. When he senses that understanding from you, he trusts you.
