I have been trying different things to avoid doing the medication thing. My son is 5 and is just too hard to handle. He's constantly talking, repeats himself, talks to EVERYONE, cannot focus, is constantly doing things I know he knows he isn't allowed to do, and so on. I have been trying to get him ready for kindergarten in the fall, but I just don't know how to help him. My daughter is just naturally smart and has no problems in school. He has been going to a behavioral therapist for about 10 months but nothing seems to work. He has an appointment with a psychiatrist on Tuesday for meds. I am not sure how the medicine can possibly stop all this bad behavior. Can anyone with children on medicine reassure me that I am going the right direction?
