How to Discipline your Child with ADHD

How to Discipline your Child with ADHD

I’m about to tell you something that may blow your mind: children with ADHD can become addicted to their parent’s anger and big emotions. Yes, that’s right-some crave it. It’s no secret that children/teens with ADHD often find themselves in conflict seeking situations. Individuals with ADHD have low activity in the prefrontal cortex due to lower levels of dopamine and adrenaline. When you yell at someone with ADHD, it stimulates their brain and wakes it up, just like medication does. Essentially, you could be acting as your child’s medication and not know it.
