You can do handicrafts, read together, or even go to the recreation center in a relaxed atmosphere.
You should devote 20 to 30 minutes every day to such a child only; other family members (especially siblings) should not be welcome.
Always plan the fun time in advance so that your child can look forward to it, it makes the moment more interesting.
During the time you’re together, your child can decide what they want to do.
However, television and computer games are not allowed because of ADHD, or at least only for a very limited amount of time.
Occasionally, praise your child during the feel-good time, for example, for a successful building, or tell him that you too are happy to play together undisturbed.
Look away when you observe behavior that is typical for ADHD (e.g. “freaking out” with yelling and slamming doors).
If your child continues this behavior, you leave the room and thus end the time of playing together.
ADHD is often treated with medication to manage symptoms.
Therapy that helps the person identify their strengths is the best way to live with the disorder.
