For Moms With Sons Who Have ADHD

Moms of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may need an even more positive parenting style.

Using less yelling and spanking as a form of discipline can help your son better control his emotions and behavior, according to new research.

An Ohio State University study examined the experiences of families with children who have ADHD in preschool. According to the study's findings, merely 10 to 20 weeks of coaching resulted in a considerable improvement in parenting skills.

Due to fewer contentious encounters, their children showed less abnormal heart activity and greater impulse control.

Disciplining someone with ADHD might be difficult, but there are ways to make it easier. Consider these suggestions to help you and your child enjoy a happier and more tranquil home life.

Creating a Positive Environment

Prevention is better than punishment. Make it easy for your Son to exploit his skills and follow house rules by creating a supportive environment.

Understanding ADHD is the first step in dealing with it. It's possible that your Son has a lot of creative energy. Then again, he may have trouble with things like paying attention and planning ahead.

Savor the time you spend with your loved one. When your child feels safe and loved, he is less likely to misbehave. At the very least, schedule a half-hour of time each day to do something fun as a family. What you do before you go to sleep and what you do after school might be a part of your daily routine.

Give incentives. Give your Son a reason to live up to your standards. When he does his homework and works well with his siblings, reward him with modest tokens of appreciation. Earning points throughout the day might help him deal with waiting many weeks to receive his reward.

Don't be vague about what you mean. Make your child's job easy by outlining all of the steps necessary. Keep his toys and clothing off the floor and in a laundry basket instead of asking him to do the housework.

Think beyond the box. In many cases, children with ADHD are better able to process visual and aural stimuli than words. Make your instructions clearer by using visual aids. Set a timer to go off when it's time to finish your schoolwork. Decorate the bathroom with posters depicting the rituals of childhood, like brushing one's teeth and putting on pajamas.

Keeping a Stable Grip on Your Self-Control:

There will, of course, be omissions. It's important to have a strategy for enforcing rules other than nagging or criticizing.

Invest in your education. Discipline is a kind of education rather than a form of discipline. Whenever your Son fails, show him how he can achieve the following time around.

Reduce the number of timeouts. Some kids with attention deficit disorder (ADHD) may find it difficult to sit quietly for long periods of time. If you use timeouts, make them short and consider giving them credit if they manage to keep their mouths silent for the duration of the timeout.

Decide on a plan of action. Too many problems at once can lead to failure. Prioritize your efforts by focusing just on one issue at a time. Prior to tackling a new problem, give your Son an opportunity to solve the first one.

Stay cool. It's possible that children with ADHD are considerably more sensitive to the moods of their parents than the normal kid. Even if your child accidentally smacks a friend or loses their glasses, you'll be in a better position to find long-term solutions if you can hold your cool.


It's comparable to parenting any child, but it typically takes more time and patience to raise a child with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). If you trust in your child's talents and understand his needs, you and your Son can have a loving connection. Keep your spirits up and seek out the help you need.
