Parents of ADHD children ‘should take classes’

Parents of children with ADHD should be given parenting classes to teach them how to manage their offspring’s behaviour, according to new guidelines laid down by the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network.

Parents of children with ADHD should be given parenting classes to teach them how to manage their offspring’s behaviour, according to new guidelines laid down by the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network.

The guidelines, which only apply to Scotland, will be highlighted at a conference at the University of Stirling today.

SIGN says training sessions for parents on how to handle their children’s behaviour can be helpful for those who find it difficult to deal with at home.

The guidelines also recommend parents work with schools and educational psychologists to ensure that there is consistency in how a child’s behaviour is handled and say some extra support for learning may be required at school.

Around 5% of children in the UK are thought to have ADHD.
