: : hi i have a 6 year old son who has been dig. as a adhd and odd child as a parent i would like to know how to deal with these problems he is on 40 mg. of strattera can some please help me thank you
: he has been put in chestnut ridge hospital 2 times since january and they discharge him because they dont see the things i see at home that he does.
I do not mean any disrespect but maybe it's more of a disipline thing. I think to many children are put on meds for ADD. An old friend of mine kept saying her son was ADD but she was the one that let him be a wild child.no disipline at all!! and then wonder why he would call her a 'sl*t and tell her to F-off' and wreck things and hurt the cat,etc. I really wish I could give you proper advice, I wasnt trying to say your son is not ADHD,It's just I just don't know your whole story and the things that your son has done.I wish you all the luck.please take care and god bless you!
