The tips and ideas below can significantly increase your success rate when it comes to caring for a child with ADHD. Make Room for Flexibility While defining the rules at home, it's crucial that you consistently discourage destructive behaviours and reward the good ones.

One of the traits you need is patience; you have to learn to allow your child to make mistakes while learning.

Discouraging your child's quirky behaviours simply because you feel they are unusual can be harmful to their fragile developing self-esteem.
