Children with ADHD often struggle in school, not only because of poor concentration, but also because of poor impulse control. They sometimes require more attention from teachers and they tend to draw negative attention to themselves. The residual effect is rejection from other students. Children with ADHD want friends and acceptance as much as others and the rejection they experience can, in fact, shape their self-image and help contribute to poor self-concept in relation to others. This article from healthcentral.com offers helpful information for parents of children with ADHD on how parents can help their children form close bonds with other kids in spite of their ADHD challenges. ADHD help is available through Pathways FMHS. Call 936-238-3868.
