I've just found out my daughter has ADHD at 10 years old. Does anyone have any good advice. Like the following I have found online:

Be honest with your child about ADHD
Enforce rules and consequences calmly
Don't overprotect your child

Hi Lisa. Sorry i have just seen your post. I had a child who was given this diagnosis. When i was tod i found the condition really confusing and where to get help in Watford was even more confusing. My GP didn't know many services.

You might want to try this support group for parents with adhd chidren

I have a consultant from cams who was good but there is only so much they can do. Have you seen your cams team? Ask your GP to refer you.
