Parents of ADHD Children
I have been having some issues with my daughter wanting candy, ice cream, donuts…etc. I try very hard to limit it, but she found the Halloween candy I had hidden, and she was eating a bag of pretzels, she set the bad down and I looked in it to see of it was empty as I was going to throw it ouot and noticed among the pretzels I seen three pieces of candy she had snuck. She said the candy makes her feel better, but I’m not sure what the obsession is, and why she wants to have it so much. I don’t completely keep it from her, but I do limit her and we do have alot of healthy snacks in the house, but it’s just not what she wants and I was wondering if anyone else has this issue and how you deal with it? Do you think it’s okay to use candy as a reward for good behavior?
