Parents of ADHD Children
Tips on keeping your child safe
I’m sure I’m not the only parent who worries about your child’s safety, especially when ADHD is in place because of the adrenaline rushes she likes on her motorized scooter and moped, also because she doesn’t think things through and is very impulsive. I’m trying to keep her very busy this summer with lots of sports camps (which she loves) but on days when we don’t have anything planned she wants to ride her bike or scooter, and she wants to go around the block, sometimes two blocks, but I have watched her numerous times not watch for cars until she is half way into the street, anyone walking a dog she will stop and talk to. She climbs trees so high it makes me nervous, I know alot of this is just being 9 and an extremely active little girl, but how can I instill caution in her without making her anxious about things, is there a line somewhere that I can talk to her to try to get her to understand that she can’t take the corners at full speed….sigh!
