Plan Ahead
Certain forms of misbehavior occur in specific places or on specific occasions. If you are aware of this, you may help reduce or avoid these behavioral problems.

The following are the steps you can use to do so:

Anticipate the problem:
Try to be aware if certain places evoke bad behavior in your child.

Review the rule:
Let your child know the type of behavior you expect before you enter that situation.

Review the incentives for good behavior:
Offer your child a small reward for behaving properly in the situation.

Review the consequences of bad behavior:
Let your child know that you expect him to behave and that if he fails to do so he will have a specific punishment.

Super Evening Primrose Oil

It is not clear if fatty acid supplementation will help improve ADHD symptoms. However, it is clear that ADHD children are commonly deficient in these essential oils and that they suffer from numerous health problems because of this deficiency. For that reason, I recommend fatty acid supplementation in any child with symptoms of fatty acid deficiency. Unless you get a specific blood test, which supplement to choose is by trail and error.

When I wrote How to Help the Child You Love, I recommended Efamol. Since that time I have heard a number of complaints about the company and the product. I have not yet verified if these complaints are grounded upon anything. Still, until I have clarity on the issue I am not recommending Efamol.

Instead, I recommend Evening Primrose Oil. This is available at most health food stores. The supplement I currently recommend is Super Evening Primrose Oil made by Vitamin Power. This is a high dose capsule, which makes it possible to take just one capsule a day.

Vitamin Power is a very reliable New York based company that has been around for almost thirty years.

They use a third party company to test for purity and potency. Their company has excellent customer and their products are known for their freshness. This is particularly important for oil supplements since they have a tendency to go rancid easily.
