Notice your child has been coming home with notes like "Amy was doodling in her notebook throughout her Maths class today" or "Eric has forgotten his homework for the tenth time this month"? You may also have spotted your young one pushing food around their plate or just refusing to eat food served up. Instead of reaching for the rottan or sending them for time-out, stop and think whether this could be part of a larger issue.
News of a child having a developmental disorder can send even the most stoic parent into a tizzy. Disbelief, blame, withdrawal as well as questions like "What to do?", "Why this family?", "How to cope?" would seem to take over daily life. And, ADHD or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, is one disorder that will turn a family’s life topsy-turvy. Structure and routine will have to revolve around the little person looking over with trusting eyes. So what are other things you can do to help your child become a successful individual?
