It is important to teach him early on that if the rules are not followed, there will be consequences:

  • It is important to act in such a way that the child has a positive but nonetheless realistic vision of himself (for example: underline his strengths and evoke his difficulties while sparing his pride and giving him the means to s. ‘to improve). 

  • Help him to express his emotions and feelings and not hesitate to arouse his motivation for school and leisure tasks. It is important to get him to follow through on his projects while respecting his rhythm.
