Just Diagnosed With ADHD (Children)
7 year old son
I am a mother of two boys, 11years apart!! My oldest son was very quiet and we had no issues with him…fast toward to my second son who entered the world screaming, started walking a 8 months and really hasn’t stopped since. He is usually referred to as spirited or explosive. We had constant behavior issues in grade 1 his teacher made it clear she wasn’t a fan of boys and didn’t have problems with girls….
Grade 2 begins and our problems are worse than ever…we went to the pediatrician and he has be rated very high on the ADHD scales but our Dr says let’s wait and see….
I find I am exhausted if I am not screaming or in some sort of choas I am crying…..I don’t know where to go next!
This is not the mother I want to be! Everything is a battle, we don’t go out often as we don’t know the mood will be and have no family local.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
