Parents of ADHD Teens and Young Adults
14 yr old Son
Looking for advise. My 14 yr old son has been on most of the ADHD meds and they don’t help. He has put on an aniexty med but the won’t help either. His therphist had him tested for major vitimin deficiency and he has a couple major ones. Now he’s on a bunch of vitimins. Now he was suspended from school yetersday for starting what the school called a racist incident. Yes he said something he shouldn’t have but the kid doesn’t have racist bone in his body or get what he said was wrong. He also has major issues with not behaving the way other kids do jumping around, repeating the same thing over and over, falling classes. But he is not will or able to move past this stage due the fear of failing. He is called stupid annoying etc and he has no friends that call him or invite him over after school. He does tutoring twice a week plus he goes to his oldest brother house after school for homework help and last night his brother agreed that the 14 old said was racist and he should have been punished plus also said something really hateful about peeople with ADHD in general and when I explained what he meant the 14th said that how he thinks of me and really shut down. Plus I found out this morning that since i don’t punish the 14 yr old for his bad grades then he not allowed to play with his 11,6,7 nephews that are in house or are they allowed to come over and spend the night or play. I’m at at the end of my rope and don’t where to turn. Thanks for listerning
