Spend more time talking about positives, gifts, interests, passions, etc… than you spend talking about the weaknesses and the negative. Give hime as many opportunities for success as possible — that means lots of activities he can succeed in, but also making sure your expectations are appropriate for his developmental level and the way ADHD impacts him.
