Parental Praise, Positive Comments Help ADHD Kids

Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder often need extra care, time, and attention. While doctors can help diagnose ADHD in children, they can't always help parents figure out what to do next. The University of Michigan Health Care System recently offered some suggestions.
"Pay attention to the good qualities your child has, and tell him or her when you notice good behavior. When offering praise, tell your child specifically what was done well and what you liked about it."
Parents can also help by offering positive direction; tell your child what should be done, rather than what shouldn't. And, because ADHD medication can affect appetite, make sure your child gets enough to eat. Source: HealthDay News
