Compliments put my son off when he is at the gym.. We have a personal trainer whom walks up to people if she sees them do amazing stuff and gives compliments.. I have asked her not to disturb my son while doing wide arm pull ups, if people praise him he gets all pissed off and huffs off to the changing rooms..
I asked her to remember when she is training for competitions they go into their own thoughs and find it annoying if people disrupt their routines- my son gets put off because of ADHD and totally losses his concentration..
ADHD kids can do great stuff- unfortunately there is no sign on his body.. www.flickr.com/photos/66885435@N08/6853370
He doesn't know how special and lucky he is or how to content of the street strangers compliments..
I wear a mp3 player to block out negative comments and horn blowing out on my cardio routes..
