Effective Parenting Helps Kids with ADD


When you have a child with Attention Deficit Disorder, things can get tense at home, especially if the parents or siblings also have ADD. Friends, family members, school personnel, and folks on the street will offer advice on how to "deal with" your child. Usually, they don't have a clue! There are classes, often expensive, that you can take. Some are great, while others that advocate harsh punishment miss the mark completely and do untold damage. What's a caring parent to do? Educate yourself! Find out what works to help kids who have ADD.

Here are reviews of some trusted resources to give you help in raising your children with ADD. I have given a brief overview of the article with the link.

Superparenting for ADD: An Innovative Approach to Raising Your Distracted Child Review
Through interactions with others we often get the idea that people with ADD, especially children, are the sum of their problems. If we take a closer look at the problems, and see the flip side, also known as the mirror traits, we can see that what some people see as a problem, others see as an opportunity. That hyperactive child has a lot of energy. Energy is a good thing! The child who is not following instructions and doing the job his way can also be termed as highly creative. A stubborn child can become a persistent adult who can push a difficult project to its conclusion. Mirror traits help us take another look at what our traits can mean for us.

The book is easy to read and engaging. It has a lot of information that is presented simply. Superparenting for ADD: An Innovative Approach to Raising Your Distracted Child is a powerful tool to help parentsí advocacy skills become even more finely honed. Too often, we hear other peopleís opinions of our child when he is not at his best. These opinions can color the way we see our child. Dr. Edward Hallowell and Dr. Peter S. Jensen want us to see our children with ADD as bundles of talent and potential. Most of all, they want us to love these kids extravagantly and enable the children to open their natural gifts to live their best possible lives.

Understood Website Review
Understood.org is a wonderful resource! They have thousands of resources for folks with attention difficulties and learning problems. This applies to many people with Attention Deficit Disorder, since learning disabilities and ADD tend to travel together. Kids who have one, often have the other.

Build a safe haven for your child at home. Give them a firm foundation by setting limits and enforcing them with caring and compassion. Home is the place where a child can go and know that they are loved extravagantly. How adults see the world depends a great deal to do with the experiences that they had when they were small. When a child has a feeling that he is loved, it can affect the entire trajectory of his life. School can be a tough time. Donít let the world beat your child down. Learn what you can do to be a strong advocate. When you have reliable information about parenting a child with Attention Deficit Disorder, it is a lot easier to be an effective advocate.
