This book shows them a groundbreaking program for parents seeking to reduce their child's inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity and strengthen his or her capacity for self-reliance and cooperation. This unique program promotes positive ways of interrelating and shows parents the five main ways they may have unwittingly reinforced ADHD symptoms in the past. Far from encouraging parents to strictly manage ADHD children, this approach promotes independence in kids so that less discipline and surveillance is necessary. Specifically, this book helps parents promote cooperation, reduce pressure on their child, and acknowledge the child's preference as a way to make cooperation a more attractive, as well as learn to resolve typical ADHD behavioural problems. Parents will learn ways to increase their child's independence and cooperation with schoolwork and compliance in the classroom environment. The child learns the value of being knowledgeable without the motivation of punishment or gift rewards.
Cutting-edge approach in which parents identify factors that contribute to the reinforcement of ADHD behaviours.
