1. Take Care Of Yourself, Mom And Dad
If you are rested and in good health, you are more likely to be able to cope and respond positively to behaviors that result from ADHD. So take care of yourself. Make sure you are getting sleep. (Dare we say enough sleep.) Eat right. Exercise—which is also good for stress relief. Take a bath or meditate. Meditation can also help you center yourself and refresh your energy. It’s no joke that you face a mountain of challenges every single day, and mountain climbers must train their bodies to be in great shape before their climb. You can also seek support from other parents who have kids with ADHD. This, too, can be a tremendous source of strength for you.
