Top Principles of ADHD Management

About.com has gathered a list of tips for parents of kids with ADHD. The principles were taken from the book ADHD: Living Without Breaks, by Martin Kutscher, M.D.
"Instead of punishing wrong behavior, set a reward for the correct behavior you would rather replace it with. Rewards should be immediate, frequent, powerful, clearly defined, and consistent."
Dr. Kutscher also suggests giving a child with ADHD plenty of warning before transitioning from one activity to another. This preparation will help the transition go more smoothly. Source: SpecialChildren.About.com.
