My son who will be 3 in November was just diganosed w/ADHD. I am a little confused my 18yr old was diagnosed when he was 5yrs old. He could not function in any setting home, daycare, church, no where, my 2yr old on the other hand can function at daycare, everywhere else is a different story. I am the mother of 4 children. My 8yr old daughter is a very good child no complaints, and the 1yr old I am scared is starting to p/u on the bad habits up bigger brother. In the back of my mind I feel my doctor is trying to push drugs down my little guy (Ritalin) or I am a horrible parent who can't handle my child. I have some people saying to give him the meds and others saying not, too. I know what these meds do and I almost would rather have a raving maniac than a catatonic zombie. If any one has any advice I at my breaking point !
