Parents of ADHD Toddlers, Preschoolers
HI-New, looking for support, despair growing by the minute
I am the mother to a 3 1/2 year old boy. We struggle daily with his behavior and I am officially at my whit’s end. I spend many days in tears due to his behavior. He is so out of control in public, that I avoid going places. I dread picking him up from preschool, because I know that I am going to get a terrible report. I’m sad because he is the sweetest, funniest kid, but no one gets to see that. I’m frustrated about having to constantly punish him for things that I don’t think he can control. I do not want to medicate him, so I have been researching alternatives, but honestly I wonder if medication would make everyone more happy. I have 2 older kids, 10 & 12, and they steer clear of him, because he’s so bothersome. It’s breaking my heart, and I don’t know what to do. I want everyone to love him like I do. Please help, encourage, or offer me some support. Thank you.
