Parents of ADHD Teens and Young Adults
Gifted teen making poor choices
Our 15 year old son Gifted ADHD is in deep sleep problems which ultimately result in missing about 1/2 of his school. He started seriquel at bedtime last month but, that combined with the vyvanse isn’t working.We have a good psychiatrist and counsellor now.
He is now starting to stay out and hang out with kids who are drinking and smoking pot. He is bored at school but still manages to pull of passing grades to B’s even when he is not there! He is learning that there really is not point to school. He excels in physics, chemistry and math but he is giving up. This is so painful to witness. He is now resisting family rules, of which there are few. He doesn’t want to be with any family. Help..
