It is vital to help develop good self esteem in children with ADHD as they are often lacking in confidence as they feel different.These tips may be worth trying:
  • Praise your child and encourage taking part in activities that he does well in.
  • Set goals that he can achieve. You can gradually make these goals more difficult but ensure to provide lots of chances for him to succeed.
  • Leave notes of encouragement and praise.
  • Acknowledge good behaviour, e.g. when your child helps with chores or carries out instructions properly.
  • Make sure that he has your full support and reassurance.
