Give them reasonable chores and a regular work responsibility Provide games, motor activities and opportunities that will stimulate them in their development. (Contd…)

Further improve their ability to concentrate by reducing distracting aspects of their environment Don't get hung up on traditional school grades! It is important that they progress at their own rates and be rewarded for doing so. Take them to libraries and encourage them to select and check out books of interest Help them to develop self-esteem and to compete with self rather than with others Insist that they cooperate socially by playing, helping, and serving others in the family and the community.
