I need help
I have an 8 year old son who has ADHD. He is currently taking 4 mg of Intunive. My son gets really whiney and very moody. He will also get violent by throwing things,hitting and pushing. He will yell and tell me and his dad or nana to shut up. I try to remain calm. when he acts up I put him in time out for 3 min or take away his privledges. I also reward him for good behavior. At school he is good. He mostly shows ADD behavior at school and at home it is more ADHD or ODD behavior. Do any of you know any other positive ways to deal with his behavior?
