Parenting Children with ADHDYour Childs Future

Your child has ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). He is impulsive, hyperactive, and temperamental because he does not have the frontal lobe ability to monitor his behavior. He has low self-esteem because he is constantly being corrected by adults for his inappropriate behavior.

He has ODD (oppositional defiant disorder) because he thinks he is never wrong. He does not trust or respect adults because he thinks he is smarter than they are. He is obnoxious, unhappy, rejected, and out of control—all the makings of a social outcast. It has been said that a child with ADHD operates like a speeding car without the brakes.

Remember this metaphor by heart. There are several ways to stop a car without brakes. It is your job to help your child find those ways unique to him so that he can slow down, pay attention, make informed choices, and learn.

Effect of ADHD on Your Child's Future Few parenting experts will tell you honestly how dim your child's future will probably be without proper ADHD treatment. Some untreated adults with ADHD develop their own coping skills to make their disorders more manageable, for example, drinking eight cups of coffee a day. Most lead unhappy and unproductive lives, drifting through jobs and relationships with little success. Many adults with untreated ADHD also have drug and alcohol addiction problems. An untreated child with ADHD, ten years old or younger, will often experiment with substance abuse to try to curb his emotional pain.

If he is frequently out of control when he is 11 or 12, his parents might look into residential treatment facilities for treatment. When he is 15, his parents might give up and hope for the day he is old enough to leave home for good. You Can Improve Child Behavior Your child's future depends on your decision to take an active role in helping him overcome ADHD and ODD. A man who wants to do something will find a way; a man who doesn't will find an excuse.
