How to Cultivate Positive Behaviors with ADHD
Updated: Nov 19, 2022
Individuals with ADHD are often said to have "behavior problems."
Sometimes they can be impulsive, throw tantrums, say inappropriate things, and refuse to do activities they don't want to do.
These behaviors can be difficult for parents, partners, colleagues, and teachers to deal with.
However, it is important to understand that these individuals don't desire to be oppositional. ADHD and weak executive function make it difficult for them to initiate tasks, control impulsivity, and regulate emotions.
If any of these apply to you or someone you know, improved EF may be the answer.
