ADHD in Boys
Saying "I Love You"
Hi, all: I’m new here and have a question I’ve been wanting to ask for so long… My son is 13 and was diagnosed with ADD a few years ago; we are planning to start his first med trial (Focalin) next wk. He has not said “I love you” to me - or anyone - for roughly 4 yrs. My husband & I tell him we love him all the time and he says “uh huh” or has no response. He used to say it when he was younger. I am so sad about this. Is this an “ADD thing” that others have experienced (or am I the only “unloved” mom out there?)? Thanks in advance for your insights.
