Plan in advance
Where possible, plan in advance, and involve your kids in the decision making process, so that you and your family know what they are going to be doing. If you’re going to be doing a fun activity or spending some time outdoors, it’s good to let everyone know in advance so that they know what to expect. This may help to avoid any potential tantrums or anxiety.
That said, this doesn’t mean that you need a perfectly structured day with no flexibility. Being adaptable, especially when things don’t go as planned, is a really important skill to develop in life, especially when you have ADHD.
It is also important to plan in some down time as well as all the activities, for both you and the rest of the family.
