How should I discipline my teenager with ADHD?

ANSWER

Whatever you do, handle discipline in private. Teenagers are often sensitive of how they appear to others, so they may overreact or feel ashamed if you discipline them in public. The teen years can be tough for any kid, so be gentle and understanding. Talk with them about any issues they're having.

Talk with your teen's teachers when issues in the classroom come up, and make plans with your teen to deal with them together.
