Abstract

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a highly prevalent disorder affecting around 4% of preschool and school-aged children worldwide (Egger & Arnold, 2006; Polanczyk et al 2007). The presence of ADHD in preschool age children is associated with a clear risk of later educational difficulties (Washbrook et al. 2013) and ADHD leads to family borne costs (e.g. time off work, cost of damage in the home) as well as increased health and education costs (Chorozoglou et al, 2015). The challenges of bringing up a child with ADHD are compounded when parents lack social and educational resources to cope with and manage that child’s difficult and challenging behaviour (Larsson et al, 2014).

Parents who have ADHD themselves (Sonuga-Barke et al, 2002) or mental illness will find parenting a child with ADHD more difficult (Chronis et al, 2007).

One of main targets of the New Forest Parenting programme (NFPP) is working with the parent to improve self-regulation in their child. Thus, it was important to discuss with the leaders in each country in which we were going to train, what the influences were behind the development of self–regulation in the children in their culture.
