How does attention deficit disorder affect your child’s behavior and development? Yelling, telling a child to get with the program, giving an occasional pat on the head or squeeze on the shoulder — none of these are very effective with ADHD children. Here’s your chance to learn some techniques that will work. Russell Barkley, Ph.D., explains, and offers insightful tips on providing structure, consequences, and rewards.

In this episode, learn:

  • Discipline strategies for when imposing consequences doesn’t change behavior
  • How to handle an explosive child, even during the worst meltdowns
  • Strategies for managing screen time
