12 Things To Remember If You Love A Person With ADHD

A person with ADHD(Attention-Deficit/Hyperactive Disorder) can be hard to live with. They are manageable, but that too, is a full-time challenge. As a person with ADHD has to work through his challenges, you as his lover, parent, sibling or friend also have to learn coping skills to improve the situation. Don’t do these 12 things if you want to have a happier life together.

11. Don’t Try To Control Them – Control Yourself.

Trying to control people is never effective. When you don’t know how to motivate your loved one, think about how you can change your approach. You can’t control other people; you can only control your words, thoughts, and reactions towards them.

12. Don’t Lean In – Step Back.

Leaning in and pushing a person to perform isn’t the most effective way to reach the result you desire. When stress is high and you feel like screaming, back off. Stepping back gives you time to breathe, relax, and readjust your thoughts.
