Can’t get them to sleep because they’re too wired during the holidays? It’s important to take a few minutes at the end of the day to sit in a quiet spot and talk about how the day went. Take that same time to review the schedule for tomorrow. Remember, fewer surprises mean smoother days to an ADHD child. You can review the day’s schedule (both successes and failures) verbally and visually. Post successes on the fridge.
Doing this on a regular basis may seem a chore for both of you at first, but adhering to this will settle their minds for a full night’s sleep and get them prepared for the following day. Additionally, it teaches them effective time management while helping you maintain your sanity!
