Parents of kids with ADHD: What works for you?
October 15, 2010 11:37 AM Subscribe
What resources have been helpful in teaching you parenting strategies for managing your child's behavior? Other parents, clinicians, internet, random inspiration?
What have you tried in the past that didn't work, and why? What's working now?

I'm interested in learning more about the real-world applications for behavior management for ADHD (both as a student and eventual future parent.) There is a good bit of literature on behavioral interventions, but I want to know what the MeFites are doing.
Please provide author, title, link to website, keywords, etc, some way I can find the primary source. Or at least tell me where you got the advice. ("psychiatrist," "another parent," "counselor," etc)
To avoid the thread getting sidetracked, please don't go off on a BLARG SUGAR GLUTEN RED DYE TELEVISION rant - these things are relevant, but keep it positive.
