Parents of ADHD Children
Do the meltdowns/tantrums/defiance behaviors get better with age?
My son is 6. He has ADHD. He gets very out of sorts and melts down and tantrums horribly if he does not get his way all of the time. I am just sitting here thinking, “what is he going to be like at 15?!” He is in therapy. He is on meds. I have a 504 meeting tomorrow to get things started in school in terms of his aggressive behavior. I’ve implemented dietary changes. I’m reading books. Like many here I don’t think there is much more that can be reasonably done. Did things get better for you all as the kids aged?
