Raising a Child Who Wants to Behave

"I've yelled, lectured, threatened, given time-outs, and even spanked—and nothing works!" So, what next? Try catering to your child's specific needs with these positive parenting strategies for kids with ADHD.

Be a Good Role Model

Parents are a child's most influential role model, so think carefully about your own behavior. If you're unable to control yourself, how can you expect your child to exercise self-control?

It's perfectly normal to feel angry at your child from time to time. It's not OK to continually shout at her. You wouldn't dream of screaming and swearing at friends or coworkers, so you know you can control your anger if you must.
