I have a problem. I have a 5 yr old son who has been diagnosed with with ADHD. He has behavioral problems at times and I try to punish him. He always wants to press your luck. He is a good kid though, he does his homework but he doesn't focus at times. And when I look in this folder I see bad marks like talking or not listening in class,
Should I put my son on Adderall? My wife and I talked about it and we think we shouldn't cause he will be dependent on it and the side affects after it wears off. I am stuck and I don't know what to do. I get frustrated at times too and it doesn't help the situation. Are there programs out there that can help him without taking medication? What can I do as a father to help him?
