In many ways, raising a child with ADHD can feel like you’re walking a tightrope. On one hand, you want to give them the support they need to excel academically and socially. But on the other hand, you risk pushing them too hard or letting them fall into bad habits if you don’t set boundaries and enforce rules. This article will provide some tips and tricks to help kids with ADHD maintain higher self esteem without sacrificing self worth!

How do you build self-esteem in a child with ADHD?

There are a lot of ways to build self-esteem in kids, but it can be especially challenging for kids with ADHD. Here are a few tips:

1. Help them find their strengths. Kids with ADHD often feel like they can’t do anything right. It’s important to help them identify their strengths and celebrate their accomplishments, no matter how small.

2. Encourage positive self-talk. Help your child learn to talk to themselves in a positive way. This will help them counter the negative thoughts that can come with ADHD.

3. Help them connect with others. Social interactions can be difficult for kids with ADHD, but it’s important for them to feel connected to others. Find activities and groups where they can feel accepted and supported.

4. Model healthy self-esteem. As a parent or caregiver, you have a lot of influence on your child’s self-esteem. Show them how to treat themselves with respect and kindness.

5. Diagnosis. Another way to boost your child’s self-esteem is to ensure they get the proper diagnosis and therapy. They may have a more negative self-perception if they don’t realize that their difficulties are related to ADHD rather than to some kind of personal error.
