7. Don’t Be Impulsive – Practice Patience.
Someone with ADHD is impulsive. If you are the rational thinker in the relationship, your ADHD loved one is depending on you to be wise and patient. Two impulsive people reacting emotionally and regurgitating information at each other, does not make for a happy ending.
