Parents of ADHD Children
Doesn't like school and throws fit every morning
My son is 6 and in kindergarten. Each morning he throws a fit because he doesn’t want to go to school. He says its boring because all you do is learn learn learn! He just wants to stay home and be in his jammies and play with his younger brothers.
We have used rewards and also consequences, but the main point is he is not excited or has a desire to go.
We have him on medication, so he is not getting into trouble at school. So, he is not having bad experiences there, and there are a few buddies he likes in his class.
He just wants to do more of the centers that are interactive, art, science, computer, etc.
Has anyone else experienced this?
