At a Glance
· Kids with ADHD feel the same emotions as their peers.
· Emotions are more intense with ADHD and impact everyday living.
· ADHD makes it hard to manage emotions.
Telling lies is something all children do - not in an attempt to deceive but as a coping mechanism to deal with their own remorse, shame and inability to understand that their poor impulse control makes them say and do things they know they should not do but seem unable to control - yet they must also learn that all behaviours have consequences. Better to teach them to self regulate and self manage their ADHD
Children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are often told to be quiet and sit still in the classroom. But new research suggests that letting them move around may actually be a more effective way to help them learn.
The study, recently published in the Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology, suggests that physical motion is critical to the way that children with ADHD recall information and solve problems.
