If you are the parent of a child with ADHD, you probably have more questions than you do answers. Normal discipline doesn't seem to work. Your child may seem to get enjoyment from disturbing and annoying siblings. You send him to do a chore, but it never gets done. Did he really forget? Or is he being lazy?

As parents of children with ADHD, we have all been there. We have all wondered what this diagnosis means, why our child is different, and what do we do now? ADHDCentral has lots of resources to help you through. I have compiled some of the top posts on the site and organized them into categories to help you find the information you are looking for.
