Teaching your child with ADHD

As a parent of a school-aged child with ADHD, teaching them new responsibilities or tasks can be a challenging and frustrating experience.

Tip 296

If your child gets stuck when learning something, start with what they understand and then see if they can identify the part they are stuck on.

Tip 297

Whenever your child feels insecure or self-critical, talk to your child about their strengths. Remember that with kids, 7 positive thoughts are needed to overcome 1 negative thought.

Tip 298

When your child says "I can't " or "I'm not good at___" adding "yet" to the end of the statement changes the focus from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset.
