Parents who have children with ADHD work hard to meet the needs of their child/children. It is so difficult to apply standard rules and regulations that are meant for non ADHD children. Therefore, children with ADHD need to have rules that they can understand, follow and are consistent. Children who have visible rules often respond well to organised systems of rewards and consequences.
