Consistent is key for the ADD/ADHD child

When you discipline your child be consistent. Set rules for what they can and cannot do. Be clear on what will happen when they break the rules. Be sure to remind them when they are almost to the point of breaking a rule. Children sometimes need this (especially the ADD/ADHD child). When they do break the rule be firm on the consequence. Do not change it or make any exceptions. Some good consequences are taking away privileges such as watching TV, playing with their favorite toy etc. Whatever you choose be consistent with it. You will be glad you did.
