Emotional Control Strategies for ADHD Kids

When ADHD kids practice controlling their emotions and impulsive outbursts, they will be healthier and happier at school and at home. Here's how parents can help.

Practice Forgiveness

Encourage your child to forgive herself for mistakes. Emotional upset is caused less by specific situations or events and more by what we tell ourselves about that situation. For example, if your child is upset about forgetting her homework, help her redirect that anger into planning ways she can remember to bring it tomorrow.
