What can be done to reduce hoarding?

The Giving Spree

Turn hoarding into giving. AD/HD individuals typically love to hoard: tiny scraps of paper, rubber bands, old papers, and the like. Often children love to hoard well-loved but outgrown items in closets and drawers and under the bed. Set aside a large box, and encourage your children to put their 'treasure' in the box to share with other children through local charities that collect such items. Share yours, too, and encourage conversation about the items.
