ADHD in Boys
Six yr old twins
I am new. I have 6.5 yr old twin boys, first graders. they are not formally diagnosed with ADD or ADHD but I have known sine they were babies that they were different, one more so than the other. I have a 3 yr old boy as well and it seems as tho he is from a different gene pool altogether. the twins are almost unmanageable, together, at home and in public, At school they seem to be fine but are average academically. i am not aiming for scholars here. i just want succesful and confident boys and some peace at home. everything we do, every project, etc…seems to turn into a nightmare. they are always in their rooms and i am constantly trying to breathe, calm down and get thru anxiety/panic attacks. there are a lot of other variables here - too much to go into - as i’m sure other families have as well (finances, family deaths, etc)...i feel alone and trapped. i don’t want to medicate my kids and do a lot of natural herbs and supplelements as well as yoga for myself. i do take effexor tho. is family time supposed to be so horrendous??? just looking for support. thanks:)
