The school year is winding down, and your child is understandably fantasizing of lazy summer days free from homework, alarms, and stress. You are ready for a break, too, and hopeful your child will benefit from down time, a medication break, and some serious running around. Your summer fantasy sounds relaxing and fun, but it may actually cause more problems and sleepless nights.

Why? Children with ADHD thrive on structure. When you strip away the school-year routine entirely, disaster often ensues. Instead, take a measured approach to summer by working with your child to establish schedules and goals, and to create an environment that fosters fun and relaxation — and symptom control.
