A few safety rules for children with ADHD

 

These safety rules for ADHD children may seem obvious, but we find that reminders seldom hurt — especially for caregivers who don't live every day with attention deficit and hyperactivity.

A parent or older sibling must always supervise free play.

Stop his jumping or running sooner than you might with another child.

When outside, hold hands.

When out for a stroll, walk on the side that's closer to the street.

Be ready to stop a child with your actions, not words, should he happen to dart off.

Hold hands in stores or malls, or place the child in a wagon or cart with a seat belt.
