KUNRATH, Letícia Hoffmann; WAGNER, Adriana  e  JOU, Graciela Y. de. The education of children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: what to do?. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2006, vol.12, n.20, pp. 235-250. ISSN 1677-1168.

Nowadays, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the commonest childhood disorders. Most research workson the subject refer to family stress and difficulties, as the relationship between those children and their parents generates more conflicts than usual. The aim of this article is to analyze the parents of school-age children with ADHD in order to identify what kind of educational strategies they use, and which ones they consider most effective to guide and educate their children, as well as to define the most commonly used ones. For such, the focal group technique and individual interviews were used. Data handling was based on content analysis, according to Olabuénega (1999), starting from the following thematic axes previously established by the literature: parenting description; educational difficulties of children with ADHD; adopted educational strategies; efficiency of strategies. Results showed strategies such as threat, beating, negotiation, punishment and awareness as the ones most used by parents.
