My son is 3 1/2 and is very VERY hyper. I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was 13. I had ADHD when I was younger but only diagnosed at 13. My son has a bit of an obsession with straightening things out into lines and putting stuff in order. He stutters a bit and hates being dirty. Example, he refused to put his hands in the pumpkin and when he did, he ran to the bathroom to wash them. My son can't sit still and loves to climb everything.
I am a single mother and we are home all the time. I don't know if it really is ADHD or if it's because he isn't getting the social interaction and attention from others. I need to know how to deal with him if he does have ADHD.he is also very smart. He's hitting 4-5 year old milestones already so I can tell he is going to be good in school. I just don't want his attention problem to get in the way of school. Thanks!!!!!!
