Coming up with a structure or a habit that you can follow on a regular basis can also help; make a habit of taking notes whenever you are in class or you are listening from someone so that it can boost your attention. If you are in the office or class and you have problem to do with disorganisation of your paper work, you can deal with it by choosing a paperwork system that works well with you and also avoid piling of papers on your desk or in the office.
The parent is required to have the energy, patience, affection for the kid in order to be able to help the child.
After defining the rules you want your kid to follow, it is advisable to allow flexibility by avoiding too much strictness on the kid because kids with ADHD normally have a problem of adapting to changes so u need to also understand that part very well.
It is also advisable that you also learn to ignore the mild disruptive behaviours of the kid because there has to be in one way or the other, a way, that the kid has to release his or her confined energy; if the kid does it intentionally, in an abusive way or deliberately disrupts other you should urge the kid not to do so or even punish him or her if need be.
If the kid has a tendency of having self focused behaviours you can help them by encouraging them to think out loud and share with you what it is that they are thinking about or what it is that is running on their mind; Asking your kid to articulate their thoughts and reasoning when the need to act out arises can also be a way to help them stop focusing on themselves and it also helps to curb impulsive behaviours in kids with ADHD.
