Now that I have your attention.
For those that have young kids with ADHD/odd (and impulse control disorder), how do you effectively discipline your child/ren?


And please don't suggest hitting. Not our thing.

It doesn't work. He's extremely defiant.
He's in therapy 3x a week too.
He fights with everything.

 With my 10yo, we use time outs and loss of priviledges as well as have a discussion about what he did, why, what should he have done, ect. Depends on the situation though.

When you are having a good moment. Come up with a plan with his input on what his punishments should be for xyz. And stick with it. write down and post it for where it can be seen.

The only thing that has worked for us are time outs.  Talking to her?  Ha!

Have you worked on a behavior contract with his therapist??  The therapist can work with you to devise stratagies and rewards or consequences that may be effective for your particular child.  Every child is different.

Lots of redirection, positive reinforcement and the removal of privileges. Still difficult lol

Keep telling him that hitting is bad, and hitting leads to time outs. At first I found time outs ineffective. Then after staying consistent my son started behaving so much better. He hates sitting down on a stool. He's a little negotiator. He will sit there, and try negotiate shorter time out. Before, he use to fight.

Time outs and losing things don't even phase him.
We've reached a point of not knowing what to do anymore. :/
