Parents of ADHD Children
Is behavior normally worse in public than at home with family?
I have noticed that my six year old son seems much more calm and easy to handle at home with just myself,my husband and his brother. When we are in public places (school, grocery shopping, family get togethers, daycare, etc.) he is very uncontrollable. He does things he knows he should not be doing and becomes very loud and disruptive. Does this sound like ADHD? I don t understand why he can be so different most of the time at home and always out of control in public. Does anyone else notice the same behavior in their child? We are speaking with a therapist and his Dr. Now about meds. I just want to make sure he is not miss diagnosed.
