You Can't Learn If You're Anxious, Stressed, or Scared

No child can succeed at school if he believes he is less smart or less capable than his peers. Follow these strategies to change your child's mindset and to promote his self-esteem. Together, they can unlock a lifetime of more positive learning.

Where's the Motivation?

In order to get to the bottom of this, we need to understand why children — particularly those with ADHD — sometimes lack motivation, avoid a challenge, or break down when things get hard. Why does your child react to a broken pencil like it’s the end of the world — or at least the end of homework time? The answer is simple: Before learning can happen, you must believe you have the ability to learn. Children with ADHD don’t often believe this, and that explains their response to challenges.
