If you have been following this series of articles you have seen some of the aspects of how ADHD affects the lives of those with ADHD and their families and friends. Reducing the effects of ADHD requires a multi-faceted and focused approach. There are three primary practices that must work together to improve and stabilize the ADHD life style. Those practices combine healthy lifestyle interventions, skill development and practice and increasing self-knowledge and personal advocacy.

Parenting

Parenting a child with ADHD often causes one to question their knowledge, skills and abilities as a parent. Nothing you do seems to work consistently. All the advice that comes from others makes the parent feel inadequate. Parents of children with ADHD often begin to isolate from friends, relatives and their own social activities. It often seems that the ADHD child is running the entire household and all decisions seem to focus on the needs of that one child. In reality, the problem is not the child.

Living with ADHD symptoms is difficult enough for an individual. Being in a relationship with an  ADHDer or for an individual with ADHD is an adventure! ADHDers love the stimulation and brain chemistry associated with being in love. Not only that, their spontaneity, impulsivity, and activity often make the ADHDer attractive to prospective partners as nothing is ever boring, repetitive or predictable! Those same behaviors that are initially attractive can soon cause many issues for the partners in a relationship.
