ESSENTIAL READING FOR YOUR CHILD’S BABYSITTER
Caring for a child with ADHD comes with its own unique set of challenges and rewards. Preparing your caregivers ahead of time can save everyone a lot of wasted energy and stress.
WHAT IS ADHD? How ADHD commonly manifests, the brain chemistry behind the symptoms, and why ‘positive discipline’ is better than punishment.
9 COMMON ADHD BEHAVIORS Social immaturity, trouble following directions, losing things, and 6 more frequent challenges — plus solutions for each.
7 SECRETS TO BETTER BEHAVIOR 7 simple, powerful rules to help any parent or caregiver navigate a tough or frustrating situation aggravated by ADHD symptoms.
THE 8 BIG STRESS POINTS From transitions and sibling squabbles to hyperactivity and bedtime battles, caregivers’ big challenges — and solutions for each.
HAVING FUN Great ideas for games, sports, and activities that bring out the best in children with ADHD and learning disabilities.
THE BABYSITTER CHECKLIST The worksheet every parent should fill out before leaving their child with any caregiver — even a grandparent.
“ADHD is a disorder of self-control. When your child leaves his homework half done or forgets to take out the trash, it’s not usually willful disobedience. That’s important to remember.” — Ellen Kingsley, founder of ADDitude
