  • My oldest son has severe ADHD. When he was 10 we started him in Karate. Team sports are not ideal for ADHD kids. Karate teaches discipline and self control. It helped my son a lot. He became friends with several boys that attended also. He is still best friends 16 yrs later with 2 of them. Some people advised scouting to us. Scouting was never a good fit for us. Find a group for something he's interested in. Painting, music, dance, martial arts...any place he shows interest is aleready a good start.
