ADHD-children frequently have low self-esteem. After all, they get negative feedback all too often from their social environment. Many failure experiences – in school, for example – also contribute to it. The child is no longer confident and does not dare do things; and it accordingly reacts with resignation when it comes to learning new skills.
Love, affection and appreciation are indispensable so that your child can develop healthy self-confidence – despite ADHD. When you foster your child's confidence in itself, your child will make more of an effort and will also be able to better handle setbacks.
