My little guy is 6 years old and was diagnosed and started on medication for ADHD 1 1/2 years ago. My issue is for the first 5 years, as a single parent, it was VERY difficult dealing with bad behaviors. Over time, he got his way much of the time because he would not give up, but would go on for hours. NOW he's on medication, but the inappropriate behaviors are still there. I realize that I pretty much need to start over, reinforcing the rules that I first tried to instill in him when he was much younger. THIS IS NOT GOING TO BE EASY! There were many things I allowed him to do knowing they were bad decisions on my part. My goal everyday, was just to get through the day! How can I even begin to get the control back from this child?
