“Childhood ADHD — attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder — is diagnosed after a child has shown six or more specific symptoms of inactivity and/or hyperactivity on a regular basis for more than six months in more than two settings. There is no single test for ADHD.”
We hear more and more on daily basis about ADD/ADHD kids, and how everyone is doing their “own treatment” to their kids, and the most common, or should I say “easier” way for some people is to give kids medications, or the pills.
I personally don’t believe in pills, since back on my time when I was a kid, we never heard the ADD/ADHD terms and our parents’ treatments where way different than the actual ones. (It’s sad nowadays parents lost their power to discipline, since now the schools teach the kids to call the cops on their own parents)
Of course there are some cases, where no one can help the situation, but in most cases I believe that parents could work on some things to help kids to be more focused and under control, such as:
-Enroll your child in a Martial Arts Program, where instructors are constantly working on Self Control, Focus and Discipline,
-Keep a daily routine at home,
-Give your child one task at a time,
-While doing home work, getting dressed or eating dinner, turn TV and radio off, so there will be NO distractions,
-Focus is one of the things that ADD/ADHD kids need the most, and it is a taught task, so make sure your work on it on daily basis.
-Games such as puzzles, books with Q&A at the end will definitely help.
If this post can help at least ONE child I will be very happy!
