My 6 year old son is a wonderful very bright child, but he has been diagnosed with ADHD/ODD just last year. I do not want to medicate him! I had him in counseling and the school had set up special settings in the class room to try to help him but now his behavior is out of control and they can no longer meet his needs, they recommended I place in in a alternative school so I did hoping that would help him. He's been there for a month now. I talk to the local herb store and asked them if they could suggest anything to help him focus and they recommended a focus for children and DRA for children ;cod liver oil. I cant really notice a difference in his behavior and hes going on four weeks with them. The school everyday keeps telling me how hipper he is and some days his behavior is good and others its bad, really bad. Its like a switch goes off, one minute he can be the nicest most caring child in the word and then a switch goes off in his mind and hes uncontrollable, it is really like Dr Jekyll mr Hyde. I don't know what else to do for him, I'm really scared for him. I know he cant control it but how is he going to gain control of it?
