ADHD in Boys
My son is angry and violent
My 11 year old has also become withdrawn and angry. It’s hard to even Speak to him because he is so angry. He also is violent when he doesn’t get his way. He hits and kicks me and I don’t know how to help him. We’ve recently switched meds to see if it helps. It’s been 1 1/2 weeks and there is no change. We are trying a behavior chart but he only does things if he wants to. Do I take him off meds entirely and hope for the best in school? How do I help him? At times I’m afraid of him and at times I’m afraid for him. We are also meeting with a psychological. I can’t find a support group in il western suburbs.
