Parenting a Child with ADHD

Parenting a child with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can have its challenges. It is easy to place blame on yourself. However, approaching parenting in a different way to suit your child’s needs can be helpful. In our blog post, we provide tips on how parents can create the right home and learning environment to help improve their children with ADHD’s development.

The more you educate yourself on ADHD, the more you will be able to understand your child. There are many resources available to learn about ADHD. You can talk to a health professional or doctor, do research on the internet or read books.

Many children with ADHD will have strengths in certain activities. Find out what your child’s strengths are and help and encourage them to pursue these activities.

It can help to connect with groups to gain awareness and support. There are many groups available for parents of children with ADHD, online or in person. https://www.adhdaustralia.org.au/resources/support-groups/ provides a list of support groups in your state.

Children with ADHD learn more effectively when they are taught one thing at a time. They can become overwhelmed when they are taught too many things at once. It is also important to praise your child when they learn something.

Children can tend to blame themselves for having ADHD as they can have trouble controlling their behaviour. It is important to inform your child that their ADHD is not their fault. Work with them to develop ways on how they can learn ways to improve the problems it can cause.

Be patient, understanding and accepting with your child. Compliment them for positive behaviour.
