Children and ADD - Children with ADHD

Natural Steps to Deal with ADD and ADHD
A diagnosis of ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) or ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) can send an entire family into an uncomfortable tailspin of doubt and worry. While it's often reassuring to frazzled parents to have an actual diagnosis to their child's symptoms, the diagnosis can raise more questions than it answers.

Natural Treatment for ADHD?
A recent study suggests that spending time outdoors may help reduce symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Parents of children aged 5 to 18 years old diagnosed with ADHD participated in a study. The parents of the 322 boys and 84 girls were interviewed about how their children behaved after participating in a wide range of activities. Some activities were conducted inside, some outside in places without much greenery (such as downtown areas or parking lots) and some in relatively natural, green outdoor places (such as back yards or parks).

My Kid Won’t Sit Down: Homeopathy and ADD/ADHD
My child won’t sit still! Or pay attention. Or keep his hands out of his pants. Or … So what’s a parent to do? Consider homeopathy. In the hands of a skilled practitioner, homeopathy can bring about some amazing changes – gentle, permanent changes in a child diagnosed with ADD/ADHD.

5 Ways to Deal With ADHD
With more of our youths suffering ADHD, stress syndromes, unemployment, depression, drug use, crime and higher rates of youth suicide than ever before, today's parents and teachers are finding their roles more and more difficult.

TV and Your Toddler’s Attention Span
But you won't see an outcry from the mass media giants in this country. You see, we live in the country where "Why TV is Good for Kids" appeared as the cover story in Newsweek Magazine in 2002 — the same Newsweek Magazine that's owned by the Washington Post Company, which owns a sprawling cable company and six broadcast stations around the country.

Yikes! My Kid is Stealing!
One of the more common problems that we as parents encounter (but that nobody likes to talk about) is what to do when your child steals. There are a number of different reasons children steal and a number of different ways to handle the problem. Whatever the reason a child is stealing, parents need to approach the problem with wisdom. If parents just react according to their natural inclination, their response will almost certainly be wrong and destructive.

Are violent movies, video games, and television programs harmful to my child’s education?
The answer is “yes” — experts agree that violent media is harmful to children and their education. Education is the act of acquiring knowledge; therefore, any activity that impedes this knowledge acquisition is undesirable and problematic. There are many factors that contribute to a child’s education, but popular media such as movies, video games and television are profoundly influential because statistics show that the average child spends more time in these activities above all other activities except for sleep.

ADD Couples: Tips for Working it Out
"All marriages require work from both partners to continue a loving relationship," says Eileen Bailey, director of ADDHelpline. "Marriages with one spouse with ADD can be even more difficult and trying but can also be rewarding, loving relationships as long as both partners value and respect the other person and the strengths they bring to the relationship."
