My son has trouble following through with tasks. He can't focus on anything at all. He has no concept of what he is doing wrong either. I am on him constantly, to get things done.... or we just wait to see if things will change. Usually I am trying to steer him in the right direction. Nothing has worked so far. He is failing at school because he thinks he doesn't have to do the work. He is so "Addicted"( yes that's the word I want) to all this tech stuff he can't put it up!!! We have taken away these things, as well as privileges. When we take the ipod, phone, computer away...he has a melt down literally! He starts breaking things and calls us (me especially) every name in the book and then some! At times I feel like I'm at the end of my rope,but then I have 4 more years to go before he is of age to move out. I am just so tired of his teachers telling me to drug my child. This so they can have a peaceful day in class! That is how I interpret this request. My son just wants to clown around all day, yes it gets old but I can't do anything if the educators won't communicate this to me when it happens! Not a month later or when he gets so far behind that it is impossible for him to catch up??!! Anyway I will not put those drugs in my sons system just to appease the teachers, there is to much of t it out there now! Besides , Why does everything have to either have a "letter" or be "labled" in some way? Anybody ......?
