I am a 42 year old mother of 3 boys ages 17, 16 and 5. My middle son is ADHD and my youngest has displayed attention issues and runs like he has a motor and has for his entire little life. It never bothered me too much as his mom and having already dealt with it with his older brother, I learned to parent a little different. Now, he is in school (Kindergarten) and it is pure hell on both him and I. I get notes home about his negative behaviors including some things I have never had him do at home such as defiance, He cant sit still for more than a few seconds before something on him starts to wriggle. He blurts out answers when the teacher is talking, has yet to finish his work in class one day. I feel so bad for him, cause every day there is a list of stuff that the teacher marked as behavior issues. She state he is just young... But she is a new teacher. I went through it with my older boy and don't want to watch the 5 year old get labled as a "bad kid" because he is a busy kid. Any help is great.
