ADHD patients also have a problem of keeping their emotions all together such that they can just burst into anger or delightfulness at inappropriate times. Children with ADHD always have a difficulty engaging in clam leisure activities because they can’t stand still.
Some of the skills that you can learn on order to be able to get your symptoms of ADHD under control includes the following: With the advancement in technology, one can equip themselves with a calendar app on their mobile phone and using the calendar you can always set a reminder so that it reminds you about your appointments, deadlines and other events.
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.
If you are a parent who has a kid with ADHD you can solve the problem of behavioural mismatch of your child by deciding in advance the behaviours which are good enough and acceptable or not by helping the kid understand the consequence of the actions they do.
Giving them a chance to make mistakes as they learn to abide by the rules and also rewarding them for passing tests when they are well behaved can also be a way to encourage theem.
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 comes home with assignments and forgets about them you should be the one to take the responsibility of ensuring they do the assignments in time and also help them with the assignments; in times when your encouragement does not seem to work to help you can also go for professional help and counselling from therapists and other specialist so that they can help you to manage your stress, pressure and anxiety and that of the kid.
