With what you just wrote, I am wondering if there is something else going on and I would see if there is. ADHD does not keep a child from not understanding a game. Your child should be able to understand. I would check into Austism if he has the signs.

Isis get my child tested for autism, they told me he doesn't have it. His score was very low to be considered autistic. Thanks for your concern.

well when it comes to math, he pretty well gets it. The subtraction, he has a little trouble but I'm working on it. He can read words just by sight. So that's good.

my son has the same problem paying attention and my kids are very active so the activity statement is BS. Try giving them sugar it works in reverse with add or adhd. see if the teacher will let u keep mountain dew at school or pack one in a lunch and do the same thing in the morning you should try that 1st. you don't want your kid on the meds they are all pretty nasty stuff.

Try coffee!! I would not use sugar as you dont want your child getting fat. It is caffeine that does the opposite.

I'm just tired of his teacher always writing on his agenda that " he doesn't stay on task, does not follow directions, and incomplete papers. My son has trouble understanding directions and needs to be cued quite often.

Mountain dew is a good idea, it does work on calming them down. Coffee works too for the morning, but it wears off after about an hour. My grandson was diagnosed with severe ADHD in the first grade. We thank his teacher for noticing it and pointing us in the right direction for getting him the help he needed. They can not help the fact that it is so very hard for them to concentrate and focus on the task in front of them. Constantly moving, tapping feet or fingers, a fly on the wall catches their attention and there goes their focus. Meds work....once you find the right one. I think my daughter went through 4 or 5 for the grandson. No it's not good to give your kid all that stuff but it's not right as parents for us to let our kids struggle in everyday tasks cause they can't get their brains to stay on one thing at a time. He is now 17 and he is med free and has been since the 5th grade, he has just learned how to focus better and it is still a struggle. Thanks to his IEP and several understanding teachers he is now a senior in high school and looking forward to graduating in May.

may I ask, who his teacher was? And what school? I'm looking into changing him out of the school or teacher. I need a teacher that understands what I'm going thru and is willing to help my son do better in his academics.

I can tell you this that even though you do not want your child medicated, it is possibly the only choice you may have at this time as schools are over crowded, and the teachers do not have time to keep redirecting a child when there are more to have to handle. I can tell you this that parents do NOT realize the impact of ADHD and the body without medication alone which can cause anxiety which can cause increased BP, heart rate, possible panic attacks or increased panic attacks and if your child is that bad then what difference will it make to give them a medication and the possible side effects? Not only does anxiety happen, but aggression can also begin to happen and you want to keep that from happening as it is hard to control once it is started. I am in no way telling you what you should do just giving you pointers to think about. A person who has ADHD are in a hell of their own.

The teacher was Mrs. Smith at Sunset. She was wonderful!! She recognized the signs and suggested some paths to take to get him the help he needed. We owe her many thanks..

It's really nice to see caring people trying to help each other with problems here. One thing I'd add is that sometimes kids are stressed out and act out because they are struggling with problems no one understands, including the child in question. One of the more innocuous examples is dyslexia. Dyslexia isn't all that common, but think of how frustrating it must be for a child to be criticized for failing to learn to read when the kid's brain is processing visual input backwards.

A more sinister example is child abuse. Abused kids routinely act out and have trouble focusing. Children are most commonly abused by people they know, including trusted family members. This may involve anything from bullying to sex abuse. Be careful about whom you entrust your children with and let your kids know they can always tell you anything without fear. So many children suffer so much because they are terrorized by their abusers into staying silent, and these awful traumas are scarring and tend to damage these people throughout their entire lives. Silence kills.

I understand completely, i don't let no one take care of my child . Only my mom does. I don't trust no one. My mom is a stay at home house wife. She takes care o f my kid and only her. No one else. In very cautious when it comes to my children. My oldest , I still watch what he does and who he talks to.
