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.

Ferrochel

A significant percentage of ADHD children as well as children in general are iron deficient. (see ADHD and Iron Deficiency.)The safest way to give your child iron is through iron rich foods such as liver. This does not always work. Sometimes you need to give iron supplements. If you need to give your child iron, then the best and safest supplement available is Ferrochel.

Most iron supplements have a ten percent absorption rate. That means if you take 10 mg of the supplement, your body absorbs 1 mg. Ferrochel is different. Ferrochel has a 75% absorption rate. That means 1.5 mg of Ferrochel provides more iron to your body than 10 mg of other supplements. That is an interesting fact, but it is not why I am recommending it.

The more important property of Ferrochel is that since it is already amino acid bound, it does not become free iron in the body. That means it does not have the dangers and side effects of other iron supplements. The FDA has given Ferrochel the designation of GRAS, (generally regarded as safe). No other iron supplement has this designation.

The bottom line is that if you decide you need to give supplemental iron then Ferrochel is the best and possibly the only way to go.
