Objective: The research literature confirms the importance of hyperactivity symptoms in children as well as the type of mother-child relationship. In this study, the effectiveness of positive parenting group education on the mother-child relationship from the child's point of view and symptoms of hyperactivity disorder in male children has been investigated. 
Method: In this study, there were two experimental and control groups the control group of 30 patients and the experimental group of 33 were trained in school positions for 1.5 months. Also, the children's symptoms questionnaire (CSI-4), child report of parental behavior (CRPBI-C), and parenting styles and dimensions (Robinson et al.) were used. Quasi-experimental research method and samples were selected through available sampling.
Results: The results showed that in the post-test, the scores of the experimental and control groups differed significantly from the child's point of view in the symptoms of hyperactivity, parenting style, and mother-child relationships. In addition, in the score of signs of hyperactivity and the total score of parenting style and child report of mother's behavior, the experimental group showed a lower score in the post-test. However, there was no significant difference between the experimental group in post-test in two subscales of parenting style (non-argumentative/punitive and independence subscales). 
Conclusion: In general, it seems that positive parenting group training is a meaningful and efficient intervention. Also, the results promise to generalize this education in real-life families with children with ADHD. 
Keywords: Hyperactivity disorder, Positive parenting, Mother-child relationship, Group education.
