ADHD in Boys
Mornings- is this normal?
First of all, my 9 y/o DS gets up at the CRACK of dawn every day. Gets dressed and brushes his teeth without being asked. Great! Right?
Right- but then as soon as he’s done with those steps above, he is OUT OF CONTROL. I don’t know how else to say it. He’s extremely impulsive right away. Grabbing at things, people (me), swatting me on the hind end, rummaging for food and trying to sneak snacks, etc. I am trying to get ready myself for work and get my 6 year old (who is not such a morning person) up and moving. I think this morning, he had eaten 3 Twizzlers pull and peels before I found out. He had also grabbed 2 cuties and was munching on the 2nd. He knows he can only have breakfast items in the morning. The twizzlers were hidden on top of the fridge, but he found them and had them downed in less than 4 minutes.
Things coming out of his mouth are just random- inappropriate, just wild.
Does anyone else experience this with ADHD in their kiddo? Or do you think I’m battling something else altogether?
