How can I fairly discipline my child with ADHD?

ANSWER

Regardless of age, you can show your child with ADHD that you're firm but fair by doing two key things.

Start by encouraging good behavior with praise or rewards immediately.

Make sure that you make the consequences for bad behavior clear, understood, and consistent.

Your approach will depend on your child's age.
