Health Tip: Help Manage ADHD

Take a positive approach toward your child's diagnosis
(HealthDay News) -- If your child has attention- deficit hyperactivity disorder, there are things you can do to help your child succeed.
The U.S. National Institute on Mental Health offers this advice:
Understand your child's condition and work to let go of any frustration or built-up negative feelings. Consider counseling for you and the entire family on how to handle your child's behavior. Enjoy time together on activities you both enjoy, and praise your child for tasks done well. Consider limiting playdates to fewer friends, to keep your child from becoming overstimulated.
