We have a 12 year old son with ADHD. We have never put pressure on him or our 2 other children to get certain grades, but we don't want to see D's or F's on their report cards. We think there should be some kind of consequence for it, but I am struggling with this for our son with ADHD. While I feel consequences are necessary for kids to learn from, I don't know about punishing a child with a diagnosed medical condition that makes school more difficult for him than a typical child. Any suggestions or thought would be appreciated. Thanks!
