If You Shout, You'll Never Be Heard

Your child is melting down in a defiant blaze of anger. Yelling and scolding will only escalate the situation. So try following this no-shout discipline strategy designed specifically for kids with ADHD.

Know What Makes Your Child Tick

Learn how your ADHD child is hardwired, and adjust your discipline strategies to his nervous system. Recognize and respect your ADHD child’s hypersensitivities and quirks. This helps you distinguish between willful non-compliance and discomfort on your child’s part. Is your child being defiant or feeling overwhelmed? Is he seeking stimulation because he’s bored, or is he misbehaving on purpose?
