When kids can tackle tasks and do a good job, there’s less reason for them to lie. Managing ADHD symptoms makes it easier for kids to plan, organize, focus, and keep track of what they’re doing.
It’s important for families and medical professionals to work together to find the best treatment for each child. That might include medication and behavior therapy.
