Parenting a Child with ADHD
ADHD stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and it is one of the most commonly-diagnosed childhood medical conditions. Brain development occurs differently in those affected by ADHD, specifically impacting one’s ability to regulate attention and emotions.
In children, this can lead to behavioral issues such as hyperactivity, impulsiveness, daydreaming, disengagement, disorganization, angry outbursts, inability to follow directions or rules, or an inability to get along with others. While these types of behavior issues are typical among all kids to some extent, in kids with ADHD, the problems are pronounced.
