How can I manage play time at home for a preschooler with ADHD?

ANSWER

Engage your child with mind-building activities, such as reading, games, and puzzles. Join in!

Some parents find that using a timer helps build structure. For example, set a reasonable time limit for a bath or play time. It helps train your child to expect limitations, even on fun things. Give your child a time limit for doing a chore, too, especially if you reward her for finishing on time.
