What can I do to help a teenager with ADHD mature?

ANSWER

As your child matures, let them help you set expectations, rewards, and consequences. This empowers them, which may improve their self-esteem and reinforce the idea that they're in charge of their own behavior. This will also help them become more responsible as they move toward young adulthood.
