Health Tip: Parenting a Child With ADHD

(HealthDay News) -- Children with Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) often require special attention to help manage their behavior.

The University of Michigan Health System offers these suggestions for parents of a child with ADHD:

  • Pay attention to the good qualities your child has, and tell him or her when you notice good behavior.
  • When offering praise, tell your child specifically what was done well and what you liked about it.
  • Offer direction in a positive way. Tell the child what you want done, instead of what shouldn't be done.
  • Offer immediate and constant feedback throughout the day, keeping it simple and clear.
    Because medications for ADHD can affect appetite, make sure your child has plenty of healthy meals and snacks throughout the day.
  • Keep a close eye on your child during play and exercise to prevent injury caused by active, impulsive behavior.
