ADHD & Mutual Frustration in the Home:
For Parents with kids affected by ADHD, enforcing conventional boundaries and household routines often proves overwhelming and near impossible. Healthline published an article sharing parenting tips for ADHD, the piece provided advice on how parents can effectively manage their frustrations and “cope with some of the behaviours which result from [their] child’s ADHD”. The article asserts that Children affected by ADHD have functionally different brains from those of other children, and that the condition can make children prone to impulsive [and destructive] behaviour.
Typically, children affected by ADHD have deficits in executive function: the ability to think and plan ahead, organise, control impulses, and complete tasks . Meeting your child at loggerheads, in frustration over their inability to adhere to instructions is a sure way to escalate a conflict situation and cause tension in the parent-child relationship. So how can you best manage your child’s hyper-distracted or excessively restless behaviour?
Understanding Distracted or Disruptive ADHD-Related Behaviour:
One of the best strategies to understand and manage your child’s distracted and disruptive ADHD related behaviour is to recognise the frustration that you are experiencing is mutual. As HelpGuide highlights in a recent article, the negative behaviours your child is exhibiting – restless, aggressive distracted, spaced out, ignoring your instructions – are “a challenge for the child to manage on their own and do not reflect their inner desire to co-operate” and act in a positive, rewarding way.
Take the time to explore the unique ways your child respond to different environments, stimulus and situations. ADHD is a complex condition, because what’s really disordered is the child’s ability to control and direct what he’s paying attention to. So many kids with ADHD are perfectly capable of intense focus on things that are very exciting to them, like video games,but they can’t maintain that kind of focus on things that aren’t immediately rewarding, like schoolwork or putting on their shoes or going to bed. It can helps to stay calm and controlled in agitating situations by keeping in mind that children with ADHD have the ability to focus with intensity, so you can harness this hyperfocus into the most beneficial path for your child.
