My child is always losing things

Yelling, shouting and beating only make the child more stressed which in turn makes the symptoms of ADHD far worse … and he is even more likely to lose things. At this stage probably the best thing that you can do is to make sure that his name is on everything!

Children who lose things are usually disorganised both internally (in the head) and externally (their room, suitcase, books etc). You can best assist him by helping him to develop better organising skills – an important part of this is an organised home with reasonable routine.
