My son is ADHD he is 6 years old and is ADHD and is medicated (concerta) we recently had a hudge trama in my house as my mother just passed away a month ago. MY son was very close to her lately I have noticed his bahaviour changing drastically for example last week he took the scissors and cut off his hair I had to get his heas shaved as he made such a mess it couldn't be fixed. ON the weekend he lost his first tooth, and the tooth fairy came of course, however the next day he pulled out another tooth. He has never done this before, right now he is so angry I can't seem to get a handle on it.
When my mother died I got 2 ballons and 2 red roses and he let them go in honour of his grandmother I explained to him about the dying process, however my family didn't feel he was old enough to be at the funeral and thought that it would be to dramatic for him to handle so I don't feel that he had the closure that he needs .
I have put a call into his counsler and my pediatrican we have an apointment for both in 2 weeks time of course.
I feel terriable like a really bad mother that is not keeping a close enough eye on him however every time I turn my back he is doing something.
Any suggestions, is this normal ?
