Parenting a child with ADHD must require the following things to keep in mind:
1. You must be involved with your child every time. You must have to follow all the treatments about ADHD. If the doctor suggested some medicines for your child, give them time to time and don’t change their medicines without a doctor’s concern.
2. Talk to your child about ADHD and don’t feel shy while talking this with them. Try to explain to them this is not by their fault and there are many ways to improve the problems it has caused.
3. While parenting a child with ADHD, if you are going out with your child, explain to them how they have to behave in front of others. Teach them how to behave outside rather than reacting to their mistakes. If you react to their mistakes it affects your child’s health and they will feel down.
4. Ask your child’s therapist for tips on how to improve your child as every child is different. Some improve by listening to others and paying attention to them.
