I'm a young Mom of two boys ages 9 and 4. My oldest has been struggling through school since Kindergarten. He's had all kinds of help at school with everything to help him stay at grade level and also with behavior issues and getting along with other kids. This has all been good except for the problem of other parents and teachers! I feel like they think I'm never doing enough or I just can't control my son. It's very frustrating as a Mom because I'm trying my hardest everyday to work with my son and give him the best. I finally got him a prescription for Vyvanse and filled it yesterday. We have never put him on meds but I think its time. He's old enough to communicate with us about how it will make him feel.I'm not starting it until the weekend because of side effects .The funny thing is as I was at the Docotors for my oldest I had my younger son with me. The Docotor smilied and said you know your younger one has some symptoms. I knew he did but the thing is I kinda hoped this wasn't true! So here we go again! He starts Kindergarten in the fall. It's hard because I'm the only one in my whole circle including family that is dealing with this. I can talk to them all I want but they just don't seem to understand where I'm coming from! I 'm I the only one?
