How to identify and treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder?
The most important aspect to a child’s success is the positive involvement of parents. Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) can be alarming in kids and requires parent’s immediate attention.
According to some research, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) symptoms can be seen at an early age starting from 3 to 6 years, whereas the age of diagnosis is seven years onwards.
According to a recent report in 2017, nearly 6.4 million children are victims of Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD). If your kid is diagnosed with ADHD, then it becomes mandatory to channelize his/her energy towards positive areas. Parents who address their child’s problems at an early age can help them achieve success at a later stage in life.
Some of the symptoms of this disorder include:
- Being impulsive
- Poor detection of problems
- Cannot manage time efficiently
- No focus
- Troubles while multitasking
- Poor planning
- Frequently getting frustrated
- mood swings
Here are some essential tips with regards to Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) which you can practice in your regular routine.
- Give Your Kid an Organized Life
Parents need to create a peaceful place for their child where they can relax and grow. You need to keep hygiene, make timetable for different activities, give children healthy food etc. thereby giving them an organized life. This will also reduce any unnecessary distractions and help them to fight against ADHD.
- Encourage Your Kids
If your Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) kid has behaved good or achieved something (even minor), then it must be positively reinforced with praise. It will help your kid to know what kind of behavior is acceptable and what is not. This will instill confidence in your child too.
- Teach One Thing at One Time
Parenting ADHD in kids requires focusing on addressing one thing at one time. It is not a good idea to panic and try working on all the things at once. Pick one thing and attend the issue. When your child accomplishes your given goal then do appreciate your child’s effort. Take the next important thing and work towards it.
- Create a Basic Structure
It is a great exercise to carve out the daily structure for kids with ADHD. There will be fewer distractions, and children will be aware of what their parents expect from them. Children will learn a sense of responsibility with this basic structure.
Overall, if your child is suffering from ADHD, handle them with lots of compassion, care, love and support by giving them a loving childhood.
