"My Child Hates School!"

Children with ADHD learn differently. This is not bad, but it does result in daily frustrations, corrections, and setbacks that understandably make many kids resent and fear school. To reverse this trend, focus on strengths and build up self-confidence. Here is how.

Set a Goal Together

Teachers and parents should ask a child to list the things she is good at, what she'd like to be better at, and what she can teach others to do. Think about assigning a writing activity in which students set personal and academic goals, highlighting how the skills and talents they already possess will help them grow and accomplish these goals.
