Hi. My son is 4 and he has ADHD. He's very intelligent, but his attention spand is very short. When I bring him around other parents, Everyone has their opinion or they're saying something sarcastic. How can I tell them off in a good way.

I guess it depends on what your child is doing. For instance, if your child has no impulse control (a common ADHD trait) and was in some way negatively affecting others (hurting them, destroying their play, etc) I would probably have an opinion too. However, ADHD children can learn to control these things with the right guidance, I've seen it. You haven't given a lot of information in your post, so I was just wondering on what is happening that makes them want to say these things. After all, ADHD is not an excuse, although I do know some parents use it as one.
