Re: Balance between accomodating for ADHD and discipline

I also found the book "Parenting With Love and Logic" to be very helpful.

Rather than showing my frustration with my adhd granddaughter and yelling
at her, which made me feel bad and just made her more defiant, I began to
tell her very simply what the expectation was.

Instead of "How many times do I have to ask you to turn off the sound when
the video is done so I don't have to hear the sound track on an endless loop?"

I started saying, "Katlin (got her attention), turn off the video (what to do)."
