11735032 tn?1420726354 I have seen cases where the child with ADHD is trying so hard to hold it together at school, that when they get home they fall apart. That could be part of what is going on here. I know for sure that exercise, a lot of movement, after school will help. But I really need to know a bit more to be more specific. How old is she, and what grade is she in? Are there certain times at home when she is the worse?
7895439 tn?1410257737 My son is 16. He was diagnosed with ADHD at 7 and took a stimulant. He was diagnosed with OCD and depression at 14 and takes an antidepressent. I know he has Asperger's though since he has all the signs, and I want to do something about it. My husband says to let him be, so I do for a while. He thinks I baby him too much. If we just leave him alone, he'll never even get out of bed, let alone get his license, date, hang out, etc.
Avatar f tn m getting frustrated myself to all levels. I thought of the possibility of ADD or ADHD and had him tested at about 2 or 3 and they said No he's fine but its so frustrating. I have tried multiple discipline tactics, positive reinforcements and nothing is working. I think I should get him reevaluated.
Avatar n tn My six year old is having a difficult time at school. She does well academically but gets a note sent home everyday for talking/not following directions/ playing around/ being disruptive. Last week she slapped a girl and threw ice at her. I don't know what to do. At home she is very well behaved. In the last two years we have gone through alot of changes. Divorce, no communication with father, I got remarried and am now expecting my third child.
Avatar f tn He is never any where other than at home with me and his dad and siblings and have made sure i have asked him if any adults have ever said anyting to him which he says no and advised him that he could tell us if they did. Any way he is now doing this with family members and child services have said they feel no issues at home but noted that he does have some strange behaviour which needs to be checked. He is very in telligent but is extremely naughty.
Avatar f tn "Treatment starts with controlling adhd symptoms." When a childs adhd symptoms "are reduced there usually is an improvement in ODD symptoms. Stimulant medications have been shown to decrease adhd symptoms, as well as those of ODD, by up to 50%." In my opinion, the doctors have been not dealing with the cause of her ODD. Nothing you have stated is really recommended to treat adhd. My recommendation for a good adhd medication starts with a good doctor.
Avatar n tn They tried Concerta and it did not work for the school at all. He was very restless and hyper. At home he was fine at the end of the day. So, the way this boy's body metabolized the med was different and the benefit of the med was late in the afternoon. Metadate CD works better for this boy during school hours. Good luck.

327385 tn?1378360731 Sounds like your talking about my daughter, and she has ADHD. They started her off on Adderal XR, but she is now on Vyvance (sp). She did and does all the things you have listed, including the stealing and not knowing why. Your best bet is to try and find a peds doctor that specializes in ADD/ADHD. If she is found to have ADHD, so of the things she does might not go away, like the stealing.

Avatar n tn I spent about 2 hours with my psychartist as he explained every aspect of this disorder. I was having problems keeping tasks organized at home and at work....i would forgget where i put things, I hated sitting down and doing any form of paperwoek, I am unable to read a book......
Avatar f tn It is even more difficult if your family will not speak it at home. If the child also has ADHD its very difficult to read and write. His conversational English may be ok however. Many people do write to this forum with bad experiences with medication. My personal feeling is that a lack of interest by their doctor is the reason why they have had these experiences. There have been some people like Hoshi who have had almost life saving experiences.
Avatar f tn Depression and Anxiety are very common co-disorders of ADHD. And sometimes the bipolar diagnosis is not true due to the other symptoms. So its always worth taking a look at the difference between the two. Here are a couple of links for that. http://www.currentpsychiatry.com/home/article/adhd-or-bipolar-disorder-age-specific-manic-symptoms-are-key/2e1d5ec4615c5b9da40d435fca5f560c.html http://www.additudemag.com/adhd/article/2511.
Avatar f tn Being obsessed with video games, that is the age these days. But since meds are not helping the issue, then you want to try something different? Go online on meetup.com for your area and look for spiritual healers etc. The one you really want to check out is the person who can do a "Past Life Regression" on your son. All this is a hypnosis and maybe be able to pin point the reason for the stealing and correct it.
Avatar f tn He is really smart and loves to work on puzzles. Could his issue be adhd or does he just not care. I cant get him to clean at all at home. p.s There is a family history of thyoid issues.

Avatar f tn But when inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsive behavior are the norm for a child, it may be a sign of ADHD. ADHD can lead to problems at home and at school, with family, teachers, and peers, so it’s important to identify the symptoms and get help.
Avatar m tn It really is important to figure out what is going on. At this age it really is pretty useless to do something at home to make him pay attention at school. And if he has ADHD it is impossible to do anything behaviorally at home that will make him pay attention at school. This is why children with ADHD have 504 plans or LEP's (explained in the book) to help the teachers deal with their problems.
Avatar m tn But before you ban all produce that could be laced with pesticides from your home for fear of an ADHD diagnosis in your children, hear what experts are saying about it. Then consider ways you can limit your kids’ pesticide exposure. Researchers looked at the urine concentration of organophosphates — one of the most common types of pesticides — in 1,139 children ages 8 to 15 and compared levels between those children with and without ADHD.
Avatar m tn His constant behavior issues, both at school and at home, infuriate and embarrass me and make me feel like I am a total failure as a parent. I really really truly and genuinely want to have a warm, fuzzy, and loving relationship with him. I can't begin to explain how very much this hurts me. Just today, I tried very very hard to have a good day with him.
Avatar n tn //www.medhelp.org/add-adhd/slideshows/8-ADHD-Culprits-Lurking-in-Your-Home/21 I believe from my years of posting on the ADHD forum, that the single most important thing that you can do is to become an expert in ADHD because you are going to probably become the single most important change agent in his life (outside of meds). You will become his advocate in school. You will learn how to discipline him in a way that is effective and not punitive.
Avatar f tn So my question is do I just start with the pediatrician and they can screen her possibly for adhd or do i start with a behavior therapiet for the te being and then when I do come home do I need to get counseling for the both of us together. The teacher was saying because of her behaviour is is going to start to have an effect on her learning and I would like to get this under control before it turns bad.
Avatar n tn At school the teachers tell us that when doing work he’ll just put answers on the paper without even looking – because he doesn’t care. When he does care or is compelled to care, he does great. At home he doesn’t listen well and acts very immature. He’s constantly whining and paints himself the victim of every situation imaginable. I’m looking for ideas on what to do. The more we take things away or punish him the more jaded he becomes.
