Parents too undergo a lot of things in dealing with their child with ADHD. It is important for the parents that they set their mind and hearts into helping their child.
We have a carefully structured a programme to help parents manage their child’s behaviour. We will provide strategies and tips to help them manage their child’s behaviour.
During the workshop, it is important that the parents will stay positive, know what they’re doing and most importantly, have them believe in their child.
The parents are just as important as the physicians during their child’s treatment. This is because over time their child’s response to the treatment changes and it gives us no assurance that the treatment’s benefits will persist.
Taking care of our well-being is a must for everyone. One of the ways in taking care of our well-being is in a form of exercise.
Whenever we exercise, our body increases the release of the hormone dopamine. An increase of dopamine can help those who have ADHD to develop their focus and attention span.
It can also help increase the release of endorphins in our body. Endorphins are hormones which are naturally produced by our body, in response to pain. Endorphins are the hormones responsible for giving us a ‘good-feeling’ and euphoria.
