My son is 11yrs old and started secondary school this school year. He has ADHD and really struggles with friendships. He SATS results were poor but since he has been put on medication for ADHD his school work has much improved. His school operates a merit award system and they receive a certificate for reaching bronze, silver, gold and platinum. He has already been awarded all 4. He comes home from school somedays and is very quiet which isn't normally him. He says kids are calling him gay and teachers pet and what friends he did have ignore him when they feel like it. He has been involved in a few incidents where kids have hit him, but that has been dealt with. I speak to his school often and they say everything is under control. I can't stand by and watch my son's childhood be so lonely. what do i do?
